Expert Panel: The Weighty Matter of Health, Well-Being, and Employee Engagement

We’re into the early days of a new year when the stickiness of “resolutions” still has some hold. Health and wellness tops the list for most. 

Unfortunately, that post-festive period when people start out full of good intentions often never lasts. In fact, according to the Fitness Industry Association, around 12 percent of gym members sign up in January and most quit or stop going after 24 weeks. Many more would probably have quit earlier if they weren’t committed to an extended contract. 

Clearly, there’s widespread interest in personal health. 

On Thursday, February 8, 2018 at 12:00 PM EST, join TalentMap’s SVP of Engagement, Norm Baillie-David, together with Linda Lewis-Daly, Workplace Wellness Program Consultant at Goodlife Corporate Wellness and Brad Gerard at ParticipACTION, for a weighty discussion around how corporate well-being initiatives have evolved, where they’re headed and their impact on employee engagement.

Participants will learn:

  • How does personal health carry over into the workplace?
  • Do organizations that offer health and well-being programs have higher employee engagement over those that don’t?
  • What initiatives can organizations take to promote a healthy employee lifestyle?
