This year, HERO celebrates 25 years of leadership for workplace health and well-being. That we have been able to sustain and evolve our mission is due to the strength of the HERO Board of Directors, the expertise and insights of our members, and the support of our research funders. In April, the HERO Board approved the new strategic plan for 2021-2026, and the HERO team has developed a first-year implementation plan. Please join us for this members-only webinar to hear firsthand how we plan to connect science and practice to demonstrate value of a health and well-being employer ecosystem.
