The global workplace wellness summit provides a collaborative learning atmosphere where we learn from and with each other. If you are a consultant, speaker, trainer, researcher, or group facilitator with years of experience working with corporations, or have helped organizations implement workplace wellness systems, we want to hear your journey and lessons learned. Have you participated in a workplace wellness initiative that improved wellness at work and beyond?
While we value learning from the experts, we often find our greatest learning comes from someone else’s story about their journey. We will be offering two full days of ideas, stories, lessons learned, new research, what not to do and ways to improve what we are already doing that we can take back to our workplaces to enhance the ability of our people to work and live well.
Has your workplace gone through the steps of creating and implementing a workplace wellness system? Are you willing to share your story with others? Are you working on cutting edge research? Do you have a process to help organizations improve workplace wellness that is unconventional?
We are looking for definite integration and implementation into the workplace. Note that we will suggest more practical titles and a more focused approach to your offering to ensure it stays within our theme. Our aim is to offer high impact and value in a shorter time frame.
If you are an organization that has instituted a workplace wellness system and would like to share lessons learned with other organizations, we would love to hear from you. The theme of this year’s summit will be: Staying Well at Work and Beyond!
