Course Description

For most, if not all employers, health benefits represent a substantial organizational cost. An opportunity exists to examine which elements of benefits are a cost of doing business and which are strategic investments in workforce human capital.

When considering investments, organizational outcomes include a broad array of dimensions, including healthcare cost and outcomes, workforce performance, safety, work quality, and employee engagement.

This session will provide a framework for a broader organizational approach to workforce health, well-being and performance, including a structured metrics framework for evaluation of business impact of specific program interventions.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • a broader approach to evaluating the business impact of investments in workforce human capital
  • how operationalizing organizational policies and practices can affect workforce performance
  • how workforce well-being strategies can have a meaningful impact on workforce performance
  • how metrics-driven approaches to understanding and focusing efforts to improve workforce performance and the associated business value.
