Good Health is Good Business: Best Practices for Modern Companies

In the current economic climate, the business imperative for addressing health care costs has never been greater. The case for moving beyond “wellness” and on to a more comprehensive health management strategy is compelling, not only because of the burden of health care expenses, but from a larger human capital and business management perspective. In fact, current and future trends in this area are moving beyond employee benefits and focusing on the much larger impact of employee health & wellness on business operations and strategic concerns. Join us for a multi-level discussion on the business case for health management, as well as some practical examples of best practices in the industry, including measures being taken at several local family-owned businesses.

Leading the discussion will be Denise G. Lantz, SPHR, CHC, and President, Attentive Health LLC and Mark Lacher, CIC, Lacher & Associates.

Learn best practices from Earnie Meily, Vice President of Human Resources and Eric Haman, Communications Manager, both from Learning Community member Clemens Food Group.
