Past Event Highlights
To date, we’ve hosted four corporate wellness forums with a keynote speaker and panel discussion on pre-selected wellness topics in other parts of Texas, three in Dallas. We’ve grown in attendance each year and hope to continue this trend. These forums bring together human resources, wellness, communication and business leaders together on a series of pre-set topics. The 2019 Dallas event was held at Lincoln Experience Center in Frisco, TX, had 80 attendees and had a speaker series during the lunchtime event.
Our forums have covered topics like leadership engagement, the use of incentives in wellness programming, integration of physical activity and nutrition into the workplace and tobacco cessation, working with field locations, and the shift to total well-being in employees. The forum provides data on how certain wellness topics affect the bottom line for corporations, the avenues available to address health challenges, and provides companies an opportunity to share how they have succeeded in their workplace.
