Upcoming Training Opportunities

Working Well Webinar | Crafting a Meaningful and Effective Strategy to Drive Your Wellbeing Initiative | January 30 | 2:30-3:30 p.m. EST

Does your employee wellbeing initiative ever feel more like an experiment than a strategy? Do your efforts feel like reactive guesswork? Strategic planning is a critical, yet often overlooked, step in creating a comprehensive wellbeing program. It takes intentionality and consistency to produce results, yet many wellbeing programs operate without any strategic direction. A deliberate and well thought out plan for your wellbeing initiative is essential to creating clarity and mobilizing your team. Without it, you are unlikely to accomplish your goals.  

Working Well, in collaboration with the Oklahoma Hospital Association’s WorkHealthy Hospitals initiative, is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, January 30 at 2:30 p.m. EST/1:30 p.m. CST to help your wellness team create a meaningful and effective strategy that aligns with your organization’s mission, vision and values.

Strategic planning can seem like a daunting and time-consuming task. This webinar will help simplify the process by giving you practical information on how to:

  • Identify core values for your wellbeing initiative that align with the priorities of your organization;
  • Create a vision and mission statement for your wellbeing initiative that clearly communicates its purpose and value within the organization; and
  • Create SMART goals and objectives that drive your activities throughout the year and measure your progress.

HEROForum19 | Thriving Organizations: Achieving Wellbeing through Collaboration | September 10-12 | Portland, OR

Our inalienable rights in America are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. How well has the workplace-based health and well-being movement in America helped us achieve this inspired guarantee? HERO specializes in featuring exemplary companies and ground-breaking health promotion professionals who consider our shared mission to be nothing less than achieving wellbeing for all. Liberty and independence have been cast by some as best achieved when we are shielded from the intrusion of others. But others believe that wellbeing can only become accessible for all through collective efforts. Where past iterations of progress in worksite wellness were judged according to individual health improvement, our field is now well positioned to judge our effectiveness at enhancing organizational level wellbeing and impacting society.
