Workplace Wellness: What Can We Accomplish Together that We Cannot Accomplish Alone? Roundtable

September 16, 2015

On September 16, the Global Wellness Institute held a roundtable asking the question “Workplace Wellness: What Can We Accomplish Together that We Cannot Accomplish Alone?” at its global headquarters in Miami, Florida.  The discussion was moderated by Susie Ellis, Chairman & CEO of the Global Wellness Institute, and Renee Moorefield, PhD, CEO of Wisdom Works Group.

The invitation-only gathering of experts in workplace wellness focused on future trends, the influence of technology, and employee engagement in wellness behavior. Representatives from Virgin Pulse, Thorlo, Blackhawk Engagement Solutions, Weight Watchers, Tesser Health, and more, were among those present. The conversation was a continuation of a previous roundtable held earlier this year in New York City entitled “Re-defining Workplace Wellness.”
