The Workplace Wellness Forum engages HR representatives, benefit coordinators and other wellness decision-makers from across the broad spectrum of companies around the need for healthier employees. This event was held March 27, 2013.
The event engages companies new to the idea of employee wellness, those with long-standing programs, and companies in all phases in between. By conversing with leaders currently running corporate wellness programs, hearing ideas for low-cost remedies to the ever-growing burden of healthcare costs, and participating in timely sessions that provide how-to information on trending topics in corporate wellness, participants walk away from this event with personal knowledge of best practices they can implement at their own companies.
