2017 Winter Think Tank Meeting

2017 Winter Think Tank Meeting on “The Employee Experience”

The problem most wellness programs were designed to solve related to growing chronic health problems, unabated health care costs, and the connection between poor health practices and impaired productivity. These continue as formidable challenges for our field, but we are also confronting new and equally compelling problems related to a disengaged workforce and a rapidly emerging “gig economy.”  While many industries are well known for their deep reliance on the voice of their consumers, employee health and well-being initiatives have arguably been oriented toward a business case responsive to the needs of the employer. Does the movement “from wellness to well-being” signal a shift away from costly employee risks to the organizational value added if we better tap employee assets, needs, and diversity?

We’re heading for the grand vistas of Texas to wrangle in such expansive thoughts. If your organization’s health and well-being initiatives were entirely employee-centered, how would they be different? If companies no longer paid for health care, would they still invest in employee health? Can solving for stagnant employee engagement and attending to the unresolved poor health practices occur together, or are these issues fundamentally different, perhaps even incompatible? These are just an inkling of questions this Think Tank is designed to address. Read a fuller description of our Think Tank agenda here. We may not return from San Antonio with all of the answers, but we will “stirrup” the conversation and round up a huge herd of ideas for continuous quality improvement in our field.
