Thursday, October 6: Using WorkHealthy AmericaSM to Reassess Your Wellness Program (3:30 – 4:30 PM)

Most South Carolina hospitals took the WorkHealthy AmericaSM assessment in 2010.  Now it’s time to reassess your employee wellness program to see how the changes you have made have affected your grade and to update your action plan to determine the next steps to making healthier employees.  This webinar will provide you with an overview of recent updates to WorkHealthy AmericaSM,  guide you through retaking your assessment, and give you a map of where to go from there.
