Introduction to Corporate Health and Employee Wellness

Corporate Health and Wellness has been gaining popularity amongst the HR community. The concept has come a long way since boot camps came off their beaches and began to view the corporate wold as a target. This workshop will address how you in HR can start your Corporate Health and Wellness Programme, where to begin, who to engage with during the initiation and launch and what type of investment is required to start the programme. It will also help you to understand how you can define and measure tangible outcomes with case studies of successful wellness initiatives.

Workplace Savings - The Missing Link in Your Benefits Strategy
Most companies value their staff enough to provide cover in the event of death, disability or medical expenses. But what about their financial future and the need to save? Individuals are not saving enough for their later life, a problem compounded by the fact that they will be living longer. Our research shows that a vast majority of individuals look to their employers for help. Peter will examine this missed opportunity and look at the ways that forward thinking companies can respond to this need, become 'employers of choice' and be rewarded with the ability to attract and retain top talent.

How to Get Your Employees to Forget About Money
We should design our pay policies in order to motivate our staff to focus their energy and time on achieving and exceeding their targets. Staff reach this stage by challenging the norms and anticipating various business challenges both internally and externally. In reality and unconsciously when we design our pay policies, we do so without keeping the end goal in mind. This usually leads staff wasting their energy and time on unproductive peculations about pay. This session shows you how to bring back retention and motivation into your pay policy planning.
