Emerging Engagement Strategies for Employee Wellness


When employees and their families make unhealthy life choices, it has a definite impact on your bottom line. The question is, how aggressive can you be within compliance and cultural boundaries?


If you are serious about managing employee health care costs and facilitating peak employee performance, attend this briefing, co-sponsored by Buck Consultants and Husch Blackwell LLP, leading HR/benefits consultants and attorneys, and find out how.


Topics Include:

  • Trends - Highlights from Buck’s fourth annual survey WORKING WELL: A Global Survey of Health Promotion and Workplace Wellness Strategies. This research will help you understand employer domestic and global approaches.
  • Keeping Compliant - In a rapidly changing environment, what new legal requirements mean to you and your organization.
  • Incentives - What strategies work best to drive lasting behavior changes, what is allowable by law from your continuum of choices, and how to implement and communicate a plan that will achieve employee buy-in and action.
  • Interactive Discussion - Emerging employer practices that focus on engaging employees and their families in their health, and the organizational and legal considerations of these approaches.
