Workplace Wellness in Flux

Most employers offer some type of employee health and wellness programs aimed at boosting employees' physical activity levels, curbing nicotine use and promoting good nutrition. But many healthcare organizations are still unsure about which wellness strategies show the most promise for improving employee health and cutting costs, and how to best to motivate employees to participate. Adding to that uncertainty are proposed rules, issued earlier this year by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which would limit workplace wellness incentives and penalties and impose other requirements. In this concurrent session, attendees will learn more about the benefits of wellness programs, including which approaches have produced the best results. Our expert panel will also review the EEOC's proposed rules and explain what the requirements would mean for organizations like yours.
