Think Tank Meetings

HERO Think Tank Membership

If you want to have a hands-on role in the creation and dissemination of national Workplace Health and Well-Being (HWB) policy, strategy, leadership, and infrastructure, then you should consider joining the HERO Think Tank.

Membership in the Think Tank allows you and your organization to be at the epicenter of a dynamic evolutionary process that enhances the sophistication and credibility of the industry.

As a Think Tank member, you will be part of a select leadership group that is rapidly moving HWB toward new levels of acceptance and accountability. Think Tank membership is an opportunity for professional development that directly impacts your knowledge and skills as a health management professional.

The Think Tank meets regularly three times a year; in February, July and again in conjunction with the HERO Forum each fall.

Workplace mental health and well-being (MHWB) has long been a vexing issue for companies. Now, in the wake of COVID-19 and a national, racial reckoning, employers are ever more aware of the workplace’s impact on employee MHWB. 2020 has served up vivid lessons about how MHWB impacts everyone. Though MHWB  does not discriminate based on race, gender, culture, age, or income, these populations are clearly impacted in a myriad of inequitable ways. Over the past decade, workplaces have increasingly recognized the importance of addressing employee mental health and well-being and have expanded and improved related benefits and programs. As workplace behavioral health strategy and technology evolves, employers face new challenges regarding outcomes measurement. At this HERO Think Tank, members will explore how employers are addressing workplace MHWB in 2021 and beyond, emphasizing measurement and the critical importance of taking a DE&I informed approach.
