Key points: 

  • Why well-being is essential to enhanced engagement, productivity and organizational excellence.
  • How every manager holds the key to promoting well-being at work.
  • Three strategies that every manager can implement to carve out an oasis of well-being for their team.

Workplace Wellness that Works: 10 steps to infuse well-being into any organization.

The evidence is clear: a healthier, happier workforce is good for people, good for the bottom line and essential for building a winning team. But, are workplace wellness programs actually working? Evidence suggests most don’t. This session outlines the 10 steps you can take to ensure that your workplace wellness efforts actually work.

Key points:

  • Instead of a program, start a movement.
  • How to cultivate an environment and culture that supports well-being.
  • How to build human-centric well-being.

Born to Move, Told to Sit: Our future in the balance

From classrooms where kids sit for hours at a time to workplaces that keep people in front of computers to groceries that are delivered to our homes, our society is built around us sitting – a lot. Meanwhile, we’re told to “Move more, sit less!” – but most of us don’t. This session unpacks the “biological-cultural” conundrum we’re up against – and provides a path forward.

Key points:

  • We are born to move (along with restore, get enough rest, connect with others, eat well, etc.).
  • When we move, we get healthier, happier, smarter. But we are told to sit (and always be on, etc.).
  • We are culturally mandated to sit.
  • Here’s what we can do about it: Rewrite the script to acknowledge that we are more Creatures of Culture (as opposed to Creatures of Habit), Leverage spheres of influence (policy, community, workplace, teams) and activate key influencers (leaders, managers, teachers, parents, peer influencers).
Keynote from Laura Putnam

Wellness Privilege: What is it and what can we do about it?

While the dime-a-dozen self-help book would have you believe that healthier habits are well within reach, that may not be the case. Rather, some of us are imbued with Wellness Privilege – and others are not. What is Wellness Privilege and what can we do about it? This session shows you how.

Key points:

  • Why the call for taking personal responsibility is not enough.
  • How some of us are imbued with more wellness privilege than others.
  • Ways that we can take collective action.
  • Things that we can each do to make a difference.
