The Business Value of a Healthy Workforce October 15, 2014 7:30 AM to 9:30 AM Royal Mayfair Golf and Country Club, Edmonton, Alberta Area of Interest: Pensions, Benefits, Investments, Networking Format: In Person Canadian employers have long relied on their benefit programs to help keep their workers healthier and to stem the tide of higher health, absence and disability costs. According to Towers Watson’s latest study of organizational health and productivity practices, many employers are now working to refine the efficiency of their plans by better engaging employees in their own health maintenance and directly linking organizational health strategy to the employee value proposition. Research findings from their Staying@Work research on high-effectiveness health and productivity programs will be discussed as well as the types of strategies employers are utilizing to improve employee health and financial results. During this session, strategies will be explored for employers to: implement employee health engagement strategies; manage key lifestyle risks such as stress, lack of physical activity and obesity; increase participation rates in lifestyle change and support programs; improve health awareness and disease prevention (including mental and emotional health); apply health and productivity effectiveness benchmarks; and compare your organization’s health and productivity against your peers. Julia joined the Calgary office of Towers Watson as a Senior Consultant in 2011 and has over 18 years of experience working in the health and insurance industry. Julia leads Towers Watson’s Absence, Disability and Health Management Practice for Western Canada where she consults to clients on a broad range of strategic issues in the areas of attendance management, disability management, health measurement as well as wellness program design and execution.
