HERO Forumj
 

2014 Forum for Employee Health Management Solutions
and the C. Everett Koop Awards

Westin, San Diego
San Diego, CA
September 30 - October 2, 2014

Registration is OPEN

From Return on Investment to Value on Investment

 

Keynote Speaker Announced

Dee EdingtonDee Edington, PhD
Founder and Chairman of Edington Associates

Shared Values, Shared Results

Health management strategies in organizations have taken many routes over the past 40 years.  Most of the strategies were related to behavior change in individual stakeholders and positive Return on Investment (ROI) for employers.  The resulting savings (cost-avoidance) in healthcare, disability and time-away-from work served to decrease below-the-line costs.   While most of us believe in the intuitive nature of cost-avoidance, the results have been less than convincing.  Value on Investment (VOI) tends to focus on top-line revenue, including intangible returns and value over time. This presentation will focus on how Shared Values Shared Results help drive top-line revenue over time (VOI, including ROI) by encouraging meaningful work and lives of stakeholders and driving positive organizations.  Examples of positive deviance and outliers will be used and proposed as the norm of the future.  The new economy requires emergence of new ways of identifying and integrating the intangible values in society.
