HealthForward Sponsors Table at Michigan Wellness Council

HealthForward hosted a table at the Michigan Wellness Council’s inaugural half day Conference on November 11, 2015.  The event celebrate MWC’s 10-year anniversary and focused on various views of the workplace wellness framework.  Jon Robison of Salveo Partners discussed the dangers of implementing a wellness program that can be viewed as punishing its employees.  Instead, he advocated for creating a foundational culture of support and innovation.  His presentation mirrored the principles outlined in his new book “How to Build a Thriving Culture at Work.” Also featured was Scott Foster of Wellco who discussed population health management.  This topic while popular in employer spheres as a solution to better manage health and benefits can be difficult to operationalize. Scott did an excellent job of outlining various strategies to implement population health management at an employer level.

In order to extend thMWCe learnings from the event to our HealthForward audience.  The Chamber will be giving away five copies of Jon Robison’s new book “How to Build a Thriving Culture at Work” to our HealthForward distribution group.
