Leading employers are moving from wellness to well-being. So can you.

What’s the difference? Wellness plans tend to focus on the employee’s physical condition. Well-being programs expand the definition of what matters to include lifestyle habits, financial advice, emotional health, mindfulness and much more.

Join The Alliance for a morning event that will help you prepare to:

  • Integrate well-being into the fabric of business as usual.
  • Train your brain for happiness and then pass that skill on to employees.
  • Learn techniques for appealing to positive emotions instead of enforcing compliance.
  • Shift the focus from improved health to improved quality of life.
  • Use “nudges” and “cues” to make the healthy choice the easy choice.
  • Go into “stealth” mode to “sneak” wellness into non-wellness initiatives.
