Wellness Programs - Going Beyond Lunch and Learns

Many companies have a wellness program these days, but that means different things to different people.  How do you take your wellness program beyond Lunch & Learns and steps challenges?  We’ll look at best practice recommendations for building and maintaining a robust wellness program, building a wellness culture, and operating with limited resources.

In this webinar we’ll review

  • WELCOA’s (Wellness Council of America) 7 benchmarks for a successful wellness program. 
  • The concept of Well-Being, and how wellness goes beyond nutrition and exercise, to growing a culture where all aspects of human needs are addressed.
  • Ideas for smaller companies operating with limited budgets, further exploring the concepts of motivation and incentives.
  • The Hausmann-Johnson wellness journey, and what we’ve learned along the way.

Amy Esry,  PHR, SHRM-CP

Human Resources Consultant

Amy believes that a company will be successful when the employees are successful, and she values being a contributor to that success at Hausmann-Johnson Insurance. She uses over 20 years of Human Resources experience to oversee the agency’s internal HR management while also serving as a HR consultant for clients. Amy recognizes that running a business is complicated enough without having to understand employment law, so she does the leg work by continually researching and determining how the law applies to specific situations. She enjoys simplifying a complex employment issue to ensure that a client is considering all options and is aware of all ramifications.

Amy holds a B.S. in Business Administration from Truman University, as well as an MBA from the University of Missouri – Columbia.
