Organizations today are facing continued global pressures in order to remain competitive. These pressures are driving organizations to increase the speed of innovation, shorten product development cycles and drive new revenue streams while reducing cost.  Regardless of industry, employees are facing challenges that are much more complex than they’ve encountered before.  These organizational challenges are causing increased levels of stress in all aspects of employee’s lives, with little to no time to focus on their health or other aspects of Well-Being.

It’s not surprising that according to Gallup “Well-Being is the single most powerful thing you can do to improve organizational and individual performance and lower costs”. Among Gallup’s Top 10 U.S. Well-Being discoveries in 2013 are examples such as:

  • Depression costs U.S. employers $23 billion in absenteeism each year
  • Workers who smoke cost the U.S. economy $278 billion annually
  • Engaged employees have a healthier lifestyle
  • Among U.S. workers, lack of exercise is linked more to obesity than eating habits

 We know that many, if not all, of these U.S. discoveries are also true in both Asia and Europe presenting significant opportunities for organizations today. As leaders in the field of Well-Being and Healthcare management, we play a critical role by making well-being a core business strategy that ultimately saves lives, reduces health care costs, enhances productivity and inspires higher levels of engagement.  Topics will include: 

  • Business Case Development
  • Emerging trends
  • Well-Being strategies & initiatives
  • Strategies to drive behavioral change
  • Metrics, Analytics & ROI
  • Privacy
  • Partnerships & Alliances

Why join the Corporate Well-Being & Strategic Health Leadership Council?

Most of the companies I have worked for view the council membership, view the interaction that you have as being key to being able to perform your position at the company. I think the value of the Councils is sold not only at my level, but higher level, where that support continues.

Becky Bailey, Senior Director Global Benefits & Wellness, eBay

When I come to the Council meetings and am able to share with others as well as listen to what others are dealing with, it really helps me think more clearly about the decisions I make on a day-to-day basis.
