Wellness: Miracle or Mirage?
Are savings, productivity improvements and EEOC concerns real…or made up?
Does wellness really improve your workers’ health and save your organization money? And, if the answers to these questions are “no” or “not enough,” what are your choices? Can you really afford to get out of the wellness business? For that matter, can you afford to stay in? In this webcast, author and consultant Al Lewis will look at the myths and realities of wellness initiatives, as well as the future direction of wellness services. You’ll learn strategies for measuring outcomes validly — without having to pay an actuary. You’ll also hear how some vendors and consultants can inoculate your wellness initiatives against legal action by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
