ReDefining Workplace Wellness Roundtable

July 15, 2015

On July 15, the Global Wellness Institute held a roundtable discussion entitled “ReDefining Workplace Wellness” at the headquarters of Everyday Health in New York City.  The discussion was moderated by Susie Ellis, GWI Chairman & CEO, and Renee Moorefield, PhD, CEO of Wisdom Works Group.

This illustrious gathering of business and thought leaders in the workplace wellness arena, engaged in a focused conversation about the future.  The future of work itself, how that will necessarily impact the workplace, and what employers and employees are prioritizing as they shift from measuring success with numbers to measuring success with mutual respect and personal contentment.  And how all of that adds up to wellness on a global scale. Representatives from the Clinton Global Initiative, Johnson & Johnson, Cleveland Clinic, Scientific American, Citi, Goldman Sachs and more participated in this robust conversation.
