ReThink: Full Engagement: Harnessing the Power of Participation

Barbara McClanahan, PhD, EdD, Associate Professor, University of Memphis Health Promotion Program

Employees are often the most powerful advantage an organization has. However, the expertise, talents, insights, and creativity brought by individuals is quickly lost if the employee is not fully engaged with the organization. This interactive, audience participation session highlights the importance of participatory management practices and offers specific strategies to enhance your employee engagement in health benefits and wellness programs.

ReThink: Putting the Power Where it Belongs: With Employees

Cameron Brackett, Executive Director, MidSouth eHealth Alliance

Dinesh Sheth, Founder & CEO, Green Circle Health

The health care delivery system, and many benefits programs, make it easy for employees to be passive participants because the “power” is vested in the providers and programs. Employees become reactive vs. proactive managers of their own health. This session explores how technology can put the employee in charge of their own health information to track it, improve it, and share it with whom they choose, moving them from passive participants to active managers of health.

ReThink: Personalized Support When Your Employees Need it Most

John Dyson, Director of Human Resources, Enterprise Health Care, FedEx Services

David Hines, CEO, Consumer Medical

One-size fits all benefit and wellness programs fail to recognize that employees have specific health needs at different times throughout their lives. Online decision-support and outbound care management and coaching are often designed to meet the broadest set of needs and, therefore, may not effectively engage employees. This session highlights the benefits of offering personalized support for your employees and the impact on costs, quality of care, and employee satisfaction. Federal Express will share why they decided to offer such a program and the difference it has made for their employees and their benefit program performance.
