The buzz: “J&J’s leaders estimate that wellness programs have cumulatively saved ...0 million on health care costs over the past decade; 2002-2008, return was $2.71 for every dollar spent.” (HBR.org). From insurance provide to wellness enabler, HR’s role may include a focus on the workforce’s welfare because good health and well-being practices influence how we work with and relate to each other. But some people worry that the “fitbitization” of HR wellness programs may cross a line. The experts speak. Linda Townsend, Release Well-Being Center: “The part can never be well unless the whole is well” (Plato). Grant Gordon, Artemis Health: “If you keep going, and live with the problem and peel more layers of the onion off, you can oftentimes arrive at some very elegant and simple solutions" (Steve Jobs). Joe Sherwood, SAP SuccessFactors: “Life is a shipwreck, but we must not forget to sing in the lifeboats” (Voltaire). Join us for Health and Wellness: HR’s New Call to Action.
