Agenda
This year, the Forum is built around the theme “Keys to Engagement”. The question of how to help employees become so engaged that they realize improvement in their personal health and the sponsoring organization realizes improved health and productivity outcomes for their workforce. Our discussions of this topic will include a focus on four areas: leadership engagement and corporate culture, incentive design, communications strategies and the latest research in the advancement of employee health management. We are pleased you have chosen to join us as we investigate the keys to engagement.
