LA PORTE, Ind., Sept. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Awards Network will be sponsoring an employee health and wellness program webcast on HR.com to demonstrate modern wellness program best practices, newest trends and the benefits organizations implementing them can expect. The wellness program webcast will be live on November 8 at 11 a.m. Eastern and will also be added to HR.com's Webcast Archives for on-demand viewing.
Amy Trueblood, account manager and blogger at Awards Network, will conduct the presentation, titled Modern Wellness Incentive Programs: Best Practices and Newest Trends. "We'll be discussing the impact an employee wellness program can have on an organization while giving attendees best practices and ideas taken from the incentive programs that I have helped to implement and manage," Trueblood explains. "By attending, you will learn how to justify the cost of a wellness program to management, set up the program to maximize employee participation and find out what the latest trends and approaches are for employee wellness programs."
With hiring freezes and survivor employees taking on more work for the same or even less pay, many organizations are struggling to find a solution to increase employee engagement and reduce stress in the workplace. Research from the past decade has proven employee health and wellness programs can effectively cut healthcare costs, reduce absenteeism and increase productivity. The Awards Network webcast will assist attendees in setting up their own employee wellness program to achieve these metrics while advising them how to minimize program costs and achieve a positive return on investment.
"The employee wellness program will also include the most recent wellness research and modern techniques," Trueblood adds. "Organizations of any size will benefit from recommendations on how to plan and communicate an employee health and wellness program to maximize participation. Attendees will also see real examples of employee wellness programs and the impact they have had for clients."
