Well-Being as a Business Strategy: MemorialCare


Worksite wellness programs have been predominately thought of as a way to reduce medical care costs. But well-being is moving from just a cost containment strategy to a business imperative that contributes to engagement and organizational performance.

Audience will gain insight into:

  1. The current state of worksite health promotion and where we’ve missed the mark
  2. Understanding key elements and value of investment
  3. Identifying opportunities for alignment within your own organization and practical application
