The Value of Workforce Resiliency: Employers Advancing Health while Driving Economic Growth

Monday, May 6, 2024
04:00 PM - 05:00 PM PDT

Employers must remain innovative and resilient to compete in an ever-changing business landscape. Workforce health and wellness are at the heart of achieving and maintaining organizational success. With almost half the population obtaining health insurance through the workplace, employers have the unique opportunity to drive innovation while improving their communities. Though a healthier workforce ultimately creates a healthier economy, employers are challenged with containing healthcare costs, especially with growing chronic disease rates. Employers are looking beyond traditional offerings, providing holistic benefits that support whole-person health. The public sector is positioned to partner across sectors while driving healthcare cost containment, caregiving, and housing policies to support a resilient workforce. This panel will examine how employers can support employee well-being through value-driven, whole-person care that treats both physical and mental health equally. How are companies making employee well-being a business priority? Where can investment drive innovation? How might the private and public sectors partner together to enhance workforce engagement while improving health outcomes?
