12:00pm – 1:00pm Webinar: Workplace Wellness on a Shoe-string by Susan Bailey, Chair, Michigan Wellness Council and Danyetta Gray, Benefits Manager, Carhartt

Presentation Objectives: Interest in organizational health and well-being continues to grow as the evidence that providing a health-supportive work environment delivers returns in many forms.    A word of caution and twist on a line from the classic movie Field of Dreams…“if you build it, that doesn’t mean they’ll show up”.   Effective programs depend on thoughtful execution tied to the mission and objectives of the organization. Additionally, those programs must meet the needs of the population you are trying to reach without breaking the bank.   Join this webinar to learn how to apply key elements of effective wellness strategy on a shoe-string budget from an expert in the field and an HR expert who has brought well-being culture to life in her organization.

Participants will 

  1. Describe 8 key elements of an effective health and well-being strategy
  2. Recall available low and no-cost health and well-being resources that can be utilized in your workplace
  3. Summarize success factors of the workplace wellness journey of mid-size employer Carthartt
