Program Summary: 

The connection between employee productivity and behavioral health is very clear and we know prevention and early intervention can pay huge dividends in slowing the expansion of health care costs. So why do many employers continue to see limited success in their wellness and employee health initiatives? This presentation will provide insights into what works and doesn’t work along with providing recommendations on organizational strategies and leadership goals on how to build a healthier more productive workforce.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understanding the impacts of behavioral health on employee retention and productivity. Information will be useful on a daily basis in making decision regarding performance management of employees experiencing health related performance issues.
  2. Top talents are seeking employers who engage with them in living healthier lives; presentation will inform participants on how to use health and wellness benefits as a recruiting tool.
  3. Differentiating between evidence based and non-evidence based behavioral health services. Awareness of those difference will help leaders in determining best strategies for health and wellness programs.
  4. Knowing the difference between benefits brokers and benefit consultants. Leaders will be more aware of how to strategically leverage their companies benefit dollars to get the highest quality services for their dollar.
