The path to wellness, although based on good intentions, has not delivered desired results. Chronic disease continues to escalate and the associated health costs are not only financial. Stress is the number one factor contributing to a work population that is physically and emotionally unhealthy.

The journey of this Haworth sponsored project led by Rex Miller has lasted over two years with research from over 100 corporate leaders and experts. The result of this work is a book publishing in April 2018, The Healthy Workplace Nudge, How Healthy People, Culture and Buildings Lead to High Performance, co-authored by Dr. Michael O’Neill.  Join us as Christine Gritter of Haworth presents an overview of the 'healthy workplace nudge' and provides insight and discusion topics to nudge us in the healthy direction.

The program discussion will bring insights of this work to:

•Executive leaders driven to fuel an engaged workforce
•HR leaders compelled to attract the best workforce
•Real Estate/Facilities leaders developing high-performance environments
•Design leaders bringing innovative practice to their clients

These events are highly interactive and will engage participants in dialogue and ideation on a more humanistic approach to creating restorative workplaces versus stress-inducing mechanisms—while also supporting the bottom line business.

A sample of some of the discussion topics:

•The lexicon around wellness and well-being
•The importance of space in "nudging" behavior
•What really works to improve health and performance
•The role of leadership and culture in “benevolent persuasion” as a tactic of behavioral economics

Register and reserve your seat today to learn how engaging spaces lead to well-being, transforming human capital into a happy, high-performing workforce.
