This highly interactive intensive, drawn from Laura Putnam’s Workplace Wellness That Works (WILEY, 2015), provides a fresh perspective on how to promote employee well-being in the workplace. This session is an updated version of last year’s intensive, which includes updated real-world examples and case studies. This workshop provides health promotion professionals with tangible tools and immediate takeaways needed to start making a difference in employees’ health and happiness, and promoting an overall culture of well-being throughout the organization. Participants will come away with concrete, actionable takeaways for tackling the massive obstacle of behavioral change, and will learn how to design and implement an approach that can most benefit their organization. This intensive provides insights into new and creative approaches to empower employees to make healthier choices. In ten steps, participants will learn how to assess their organization’s needs and craft well-being programs that actually benefit leaders, managers and employees.
