Ragan Communication’s Workplace Wellness announces an important knowledge sharing and networking event that takes a deep dive into how organizations can achieve an engaged, healthy, and productive workforce: Workplace Wellness Conference, set to take place at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, August 16-17.
This is a critical time for employers as it relates to hiring and retention, positive culture, employee engagement, and forward-thinking strategies that bring success to organizations. Workplace wellness benefits play a crucial role.
“Without a healthy workforce, we cannot be a productive workforce,” says Diane Schwartz, CEO of Ragan. “But how to create wellbeing programs beginning to end and engage teams to use benefits remain big challenges. Ragan has assembled a panel of HR and wellness professionals who will shed light on best practices inside their organizations, what’s working and what isn’t, and how together we can work to crack the code on total employee wellbeing.”
Included among the speakers are Gina Cherwin, Chief People Officer, MikeWorldWide (MWW); Sheila Collins, Lead Communications Advisor, Lockheed Martin Rotary and Missions Systems (RMS); Lacey Willard, Vice President, Global Safety & Wellbeing, CBRE; Dr. Sheila Dowd, Medical Director, Center for Clinical Wellness, Rush University Medical Center; Misty Gaither, Senior Director & Global Head of Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging, Indeed; and many more. Hundreds of attendees will partake in peer-to-peer discussions and presentations that focus on:
- Ideas for improving your existing wellness programs or starting from scratch
- How hybrid work and broader cultural trends have driven major changes in benefits offerings
- Ways to communicate wellbeing initiatives more effectively
- The tools and tech to measure your efforts
- Tactics to roll out and market your wellbeing campaigns
- Strategies for internal departmental collaboration
- The opportunity to meet other wellness-minded professionals
At the preconference reception, August 16, the Workplace Wellness Hot List winners will be recognized for their top-of-the-line solutions that help their clients achieve wellbeing among their workforces.
Ragan’s Platinum HR winners will also be honored at a luncheon during the main conference on August 17. Those who excel at hiring, retention, engagement and morale will earn recognition.
