Drive! Designing the Optimal Team to Deliver High-Level, Sustained Performance
PRESENTED BY: WELCOA
FEATURING:
Cameron Black, CCWS, Wellness Director, Ollis/Akers/Arney LinkedIn
Teams have been around in various forms since the beginning of time, but why have some been able to sustain success while others fail? Wellness teams that are created and nurtured in the correct manner virtually guarantee an organization’s long-term success, so why are so few organizations creating optimal teams? In this thought-provoking presentation, Cameron Black will demonstrate the importance of teamwork and provide a blueprint of how organizations can create their own optimal wellness team.

Possibilities: Best Health and Wellness for All
PRESENTED BY: WELCOA & National Wellness Institute
FEATURING:
Eduardo Sanchez, MD, MPH, American Heart Association
Join us for a conversation with Eduardo Sanchez, M.D., M.P.H., about his presentation at the Annual Wellness Summit, “Possibilities: Best Health and Wellness for All.”

The session will cover the idea of optimal health for all—regardless of sex, age, race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, geography, preferred language and other factors—sometimes referred to as health equity. We will cover the workplace as a sector that can contribute to optimizing health for all, with positive outcomes for employees, employers and society at large. Deeply understanding the relationship between health equity and work will provide a new foundation for us—as wellness professionals—to build, analyze and improve upon the effectiveness of employer-sponsored wellness activities and initiatives. We will conclude with a review of the win-win-win associated with striving for optimal health for all in the workplace.
Caregiving Crisis

The Caregiving Crisis: How to Support Your Workforce Now and into the Future
PRESENTED BY: WELCOA & National Wellness Institute
FEATURING:
Candice Smith, Founder & Director, Caregiven LinkedIn
One in five employees is currently caring for another adult, and this number is expected to rise dramatically over the next six years as more than 4 million Americans reach age 65 each year. Caregivers can experience significant increases in stress, anxiety and depression during this difficult time. Furthermore, increased absences, decreased work output and attrition due to lack of employer support has been the norm. Both workers and workplaces are impacted due to adult caregiving responsibilities, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Let’s have a conversation about how workplaces can care for their caregivers now and into the future.

Mundane to Magic: Fostering Joy to Fuel Well-Being
PRESENTED BY: WELCOA & National Wellness Institute
FEATURING:
Jessica Grossmeier, Ph.D., MPH, CEO, Jessica Grossmeier Consulting LinkedIn
Join us for a conversation with Jessica Grossmeier about her presentation at the Annual Wellness Summit, “Mundane to Magic: Fostering Joy to Fuel Well-Being.”

What contributes to joy, wonder, flow and that meaningful spark that connects you more deeply to your life, your team and your work? Such self-transcendent experiences are important, not just for your own well-being, but also for the well-being of your team. They help us to connect with one another around common interests and values, driving stronger feelings of satisfaction, fulfillment and engagement. This session brings a new framework for understanding how to implement practices that address the heart and soul of well-being into your life and into your work. It aims to inspire new thinking around how we can honor a whole-person approach to well-being.

If It’s Happening in the World, It’s Happening at Work
PRESENTED BY: WELCOA & National Wellness Institute
FEATURING:
Angela Howard, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, CEO and Founder, Call for Culture LinkedIn
Join us for a conversation with Angela Howard about her presentation at the Annual Wellness Summit, “If It’s Happening in the World, It’s Happening at Work.”

The workplace is a microcosm of society, and we are on the cusp of the greatest workplace transformation since the industrial era. The norms, paradigms and social systems that rule the world at large do not disappear when people “clock in.” Instead, they are unseen forces that perpetually shape the world of work. If we want to improve organizational culture and well-being at work and truly understand what our team members want and need, it is time to shift our perspective. Instead of focusing on the latest insular HR or business trend, it is time for a more expansive, extrospective approach that considers humanity within and outside of work.

Legal Webinar: Countering Workplace Wellness Bias through Wellness-Legal Partnerships

Legal Webinar: Countering Workplace Wellness Bias through Wellness-Legal Partnerships
PRESENTED BY: WELCOA
FEATURING:
Barbara Zabawa, JD, MPH • Attorney/President, Center for Health and Wellness Law, LLC LinkedIn
Workplace wellness programs are often biased against racial, religious and ability diversity. In this webinar, we will highlight how that bias presents itself in typical workplace wellness programs, such as wellness activities like yoga and mindfulness, as well as healthy eating programs and biometric screens. Ignoring these biases not only can lead to legal action, but also disengagement by program participants. Learn how an innovative use of employee assistance programs can help counteract that bias in the form of wellness-legal partnerships. Time will be reserved for attendee questions.

Building Meaningful Relationships at Work
PRESENTED BY: WELCOA & National Wellness Institute
FEATURING:
Kristen Hadeed, CEO, Kristen Hadeed LinkedIn
Join us for a conversation with Kristen Hadeed about her presentation at the Annual Wellness Summit, “Building Meaningful Relationships at Work.”

So often, we’re told to leave our “personal stuff” at home and make work only about work. But work is personal, and we’re human. The more we can understand one another and our unique experiences, the more compassion and empathy we’ll bring to work, and the more we’ll feel valued as a result. In this session, Kristen will share the secret to how she built a business with an industry-leading retention rate—despite the fact that her people spent their days cleaning toilets. It wasn’t the work that kept everyone engaged; it was the focus on relationships that led to a culture of trust and belonging. You’ll learn how to use curiosity, vulnerability and empathy to create a similar environment in your organization as well as discover the connection between deeper relationships and greater results.

The Secret Life of Sustainable Behavior Change: The Surprising Science and Simple Strategy for Creating Behavioral Resilience

The Secret Life of Sustainable Behavior Change: The Surprising Science and Simple Strategy for Creating Behavioral Resilience
PRESENTED BY: WELCOA & National Wellness Institute
FEATURING:
Michelle Segar, PhD, MPH, MS, FSBM, Sustainable-behavior-change researcher • University of Michigan  LinkedIn
Join us for a conversation with Michelle Segar about her upcoming presentation at the Annual Wellness Summit, “The Secret Life of Sustainable Behavior Change: The Surprising Science and Simple Strategy for Creating Behavioral Resilience.”

Despite decades of experience, few who initiate changes in lifestyle behaviors are able sustain them long-term. Why do you think that is? It turns out that much of what we’ve been taught about how to help others create behavior change is simplistic, outdated and (for many) misguided. Most of the programs, plans and strategies can’t be sustained within the noisy, busy, always-changing world most people live within. And to top it off, popular change strategies, like habit formation, are based on assumptions that few people actually meet when it comes to complex behaviors like exercise and dietary change. University of Michigan sustainable behavior change researcher and lifestyle coach Michelle Segar has devoted 30 years to the study of how to help people transform their mindset and learn the skill set for creating lasting motivation and behavioral resilience. This provocative presentation turns our outdated behavior change paradigm on its head to reveal a fresh, flexible and brain-based approach to creating changes in behavior that can finally be sustained.
