Content: By proactively promoting health, safety, and wellness, many companies have found they can reduce the cost of employee healthcare benefits. According to a 3-year study conducted by a US telecommunications company, it estimated that Employee Wellness Initiatives saved the company $6.5 million in avoided healthcare costs and $10.5 million in avoided disability payments in a year. Despite many studies showing the effectiveness of employee wellness initiatives, not many companies/organizations have a formal employee wellness strategy in place. For businesses that have already developed such program, it is important to make sure that these programs are up-to-date and is well developed. Topics covered are: - Enhancing Productivity - Staff Health and Safety in the Workplace - Guidelines to develop an effective Employee Wellness Program - How to extend the program to Business Travellers & Expatriates working abroad
Remarks: All are welcome. Admission is FREE but on a first-come-first-served basis and seat reservation is REQUIRED. However, a number of seats will be reserved for members whose mother tongue is English.
