Stand Up For More Movement: How to future-proof our world by getting in motion
As human beings, we are designed to move. The problem is, we live in a society that literally mandates us to sit. Learn about what’s happening to us as a result of our pervasive sedentary lifestyles, why getting active is more than just getting a workout and how you can infuse movement into your daily work routine, even when there’s “no time.”
In a provocative and delightful talk, Laura Putnam, author of “Workplace Wellness That Works” and CEO of Motion Infusion, unpacks the “biological-cultural mismatch” we all face when it comes to more movement, and the specific steps we can each take to get a little more “motion infusion.” After hearing this inspiring talk, you’ll rethink the next time you ask someone to “Have a seat!”

 
LWorkplace Wellness that Works: How to build a winning culture
The evidence is unequivocal: a healthier, happier workforce is good for people, good for the bottom line and essential for building a winning team. Employee well-being in all dimensions, including physical, emotional, social and financial, are critical for an organization’s success.
The good news is that nearly all employees have access to some type of wellness program today. But, do these programs actually work? Evidence suggests that most do not. Over 80% of eligible employees are opting out and rates of stress and poor health continue to soar. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Learn about why every organization cannot afford to overlook employee well-being, and the steps each can take to truly make a difference. You will walk out inspired to start a movement of well-being in your organization.

 
The Multiplier Effect: What the best leaders do differently
A healthier, happier workforce is good for people, good for the bottom line and essential for building a winning team. Meanwhile, most leaders continue to view wellness as being outside of their scope, disconnected from the bottom line, something to be addressed by HR, and not part of their daily workday. But, the research repeatedly suggests that the extent to which employees are well when they are at work largely comes down to leadership commitment.
Senior leaders are needed to set the tone for well-being at work, and managers effectively serve as the conduits of well-being for their team members. Therefore, every leader must consider: Am I acting as a multiplier, or am I acting as a gatekeeper?
This talk outlines the critical role that every leader plays in embedding wellness into the fabric of business as usual, and the specific steps that each can take to become a Multiplier of Well-Being.
