Description

Stress is emerging as one of the most ubiquitous toxic exposures in the workplace and is leading to impaired performance, burnout and illness that can impact your bottom line. To bring about real change to the corporate bottom line, employers must not look at healthcare benefits simply as a cost to be managed but rather as an investment in the good health of employees that can be leveraged.

This presentation will highlight evidence-based well-being/population health management strategies generating compelling published outcomes—with a key focus on highly impactful stress reduction/resiliency training programs.

Poor health has cost consequences to business, industry and our economy that largely have not been recognized until the damage is done. Medical and pharmaceutical expenses are just the tip of the iceberg that is threatening to sink many corporate ships. There is a growing recognition that health-related productivity loss such as substandard performance on the job (presenteeism) as well as employee absences due to illness, injury and other factors (absenteeism) add compelling cost burdens to employers.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identifying the key trends that are advancing the business value of health and the power of prevention in workplace wellness, health and safety management initiatives.
  • Recognizing the total impact of poor health on employers (medical/pharmacy costs and costs from health-related productivity losses).
  • Understand how comprehensive, evidence-based well-being/population health management initiatives drive enhanced workforce engagement, performance and cost reductions.
  • Defining key elements of successful integrated workplace health and safety strategies.
  • Delineate the profound impact of culturally specific, evidence-based stress reduction/resiliency training programs with long-term outcomes on employee populations.
  • Reviewing published studies and case studies of the outcome results of effective workplace health initiatives.

The solution to the health crisis is to prevent the health risk factors that lead to chronic disease: to move beyond our reactive sick-care system to a proactive, true health care system built on the pillars of prevention.
