TRACK 2

Engaged or Disengaged: Is Technology Contributing to the Loneliness Epidemic at the Worksite?

Many parts of the world are changing, but what doesn’t change is the importance of our people.   What is the right balance of People and Technology in the context of employee well-being? 

Do technology, apps and software enable human interaction or does it leave people feeling disconnected?  Is it a smart strategy to invest in the latest technology, or does it just enable checking the box with a “set it and forget it” approach? In this track you will learn how to get the best of what technology has to offer, using it to enable meaningful connection and behavior change.    

TRACK 3

Mind Over Matter:  Whether You Think You Can, or You Can’t, You’re Right
In this track you will learn about the connection between the mind and the body, and unhealthy habits that form due to mental and emotional stress.  You will understand how resiliency training and mindfulness can help drive meaningful behavior change.  Come away with techniques on how to create change navigators amongst your workforce, and learn innovative approaches to help employees who are adverse to change.
