The Partners Group to Host Webinar on Improving Health & Productivity in the Workplace

April 19, 2017By Seattle Business Magazine


As part of its webinar series, The Partners Group announces a webinar to be held on April 27th from 9:00-10:00 am PST entitled: Improving Health & Productivity in the Workplace. Attendees will learn how creating an outcomes based approach to wellness with a strong focus on prevention to drive positive health outcomes leads to a healthier and more productive workplace.


The costs associated with lifestyle-related health problems have been estimated to account for more than a third of the $2.4 trillion that the United States spends on health care annually. Making the leap from participation based to outcomes based should not be taken lightly. Chronic diseases, including heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. They are pervasive, costly, and, in many cases, either preventable or manageable through the combined application of medical science and healthy lifestyles. Nearly fifty to eighty percent of all diseases are linked to the behavior choices we make.


During this webinar, specialized industry experts will cover methods for engaging your leadership and workforce in a more preventive and outcomes driven approach to creating a culture of wellness in your workplace. The webinar will include the process of transitioning from a participation to a largely outcomes based wellness program including human management strategies for getting people to take preventative action. You will learn from the experiences of other employers, and interesting data on both local and national programs. The webinar will conclude with a legal overview of outcomes based wellness activities and what to look out for from a legal standpoint.
