January 2017 Alliance Learning Circle
2017, Jan 24 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
Leading employers are moving from wellness to well-being. So can you.
What’s the difference? Wellness plans tend to focus on the employee’s physical condition. Well-being programs expand the definition of what matters to include lifestyle habits, financial advice, emotional health, mindfulness and much more.
Join The Alliance for a morning event that will help you prepare to:
- Integrate well-being into the fabric of business as usual.
- Train your brain for happiness and then pass that skill on to employees.
- Learn techniques for appealing to positive emotions instead of enforcing compliance.
- Shift the focus from improved health to improved quality of life.
- Use “nudges” and “cues” to make the healthy choice the easy choice.
- Go into “stealth” mode to “sneak” wellness into non-wellness initiatives.
