conference board event announcment

Will you be in NYC October 28-29?

Our first live event in over a year is at The Conference Board’s Annual Employee Health Care Conference in New York City October 28-29. This year’s theme is Transform: Solving for the New Business and Employee Imperatives. We’ll be there in person to present a special panel discussion on the root causes of emotional and social wellbeing – and solutions to address them.

If you’re attending this year’s conference, stop by and say hi, grab a coffee and consider joining us for dinner on October 28th (our treat). While we are happy to share how we can re-energize your organization’s wellbeing strategy, we’re just as happy to be socializing once again!

If you haven’t signed up for the conference, we can help! Email Dennis Bricker at to ask about our complimentary passes and/or let him know you’d like to join us for dinner..

About the Session

Wellbeing at a Crossroads: A New Route to Reach the Root Causes of Emotional and Social Wellbeing

“Less than a third of employers think their wellbeing programs have supported workers through COVID-19,” according to a Willis Towers Watson survey of 494 employers. During this session, you will learn about the latest research on a new model to produce better emotional and social wellbeing, resilience, belonging, dignity and retention. Gain insights from one visionary employer on a mission to fill these voids and build a more authentic and empowering employee experience.
