#HRTailgate Preview: Score A Wellness Touchdown

With the beginning of 2016 in full swing, health and fitness goals are topping the to-do lists of many people, and more importantly, many businesses. Workplace wellness programs are a hot topic we feel is more than just a New Year’s resolution trend. In fact, wellness programs are known to increase workplace productivity, decrease employee absenteeism and enhance company culture.

So what are the best practices for creating and measuring a winning wellness program? Our third HR Tailgate, “Score a Wellness Touchdown,” will delve into best practices and how to overcome challenges in order to ensure a thriving workplace wellness program.  Join us on January 21 from 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. CST for an engaging chat led by guest hosts Healthiest Employers, the leading resource in workplace wellness and population health, and Olivia Curtis, G&A Partners’ Wellness Specialist. Learn from our wellness experts and share your knowledge for our third HR Tailgate Twitter chat.

If you’ve never been involved in a Twitter chat, you’ll be surprised at how simple it is to participate. A Twitter chat is a live conversation focused on a topic — for this month, ours is workplace wellness. The chat is guided by nine questions; chat participants can engage in dialogue with chat hosts and other chat participants by answering the questions and using the hashtag #HRTailgate. (Forbes shares everything you need to know about a Twitter chat in this article.)
