Seminar sessions

1. Workplace Health – a Botswana case study

A healthy business requires a healthy workforce. The findings will be presented of a recent comprehensive health risk assessment conducted at one of the leading Botswana organizations and how this evidence based strategy is making a powerful business case for the health and productivity connection in the workplace.

2. Preventative Medicine – The missing link to strengthen your occupational health program

Traditional programs concentrate on high-risk employees, the reasoning is that the most severe health risks and the highest medical care costs are concentrated among a small portion of a typical employee population. Research has shown that if the goal of a program is to reduce medical care costs, it may be more cost effective to focus resources on helping healthy people stay healthy. This session will deliberate the value of preventative medicine in strengthening your occupational health program.

3. The Road to Wellness – Creating sustainable change individually and corporately

The workplace is generating a lot of stress and other unhealthy behaviour that seems to get worse and may have serious and far reaching consequences to the individual and the organization alike. Our historic coping mechanisms seem to be ineffective for this changing environment. This Road to Wellness session empowers people in successfully adopting a healthy & purposeful culture within the workplace. This will empower the participant to understand the value of a wellness work and lifestyle; identify personal wellness goals and design a plan for sustained behavior change.

4. Planning for Change – Building and implementing a corporate wellness program

5. Leadership support – How to obtain and maintain their support and accountability

It is evident that the success of your worksite wellness program could be heavily influenced by the leadership support of key stakeholders. This session will focus on why, what and how leaders need to support, model and manage the wellness of those employees entrusted in their care. Some key aspects that will be covered include: creating a shared vision, serving as a role model, aligning organizational support, monitoring & celebrating success.

6. Measuring Health – Quantifying health risk and return-on-investment

Measuring individual and organisational state of health & wellness helps to identify the need for change, set program objectives and provide return on investment data. The business strategy “… you can’t manage what you can’t measure” stays the bottom line of any results orientated worksite wellness program. This session highlights innovative employer efforts to battle workplace health risks as a leading example of promoting a healthy and productive workplace.

7. Workplace Culture – The role of a supportive environment in creating a healthy culture

Research is indicating that the best way to reduce unsuccessful behaviour change attempts is through establishing a supportive cultural environment. Creating corporate culture that truly supports wellness is a long term project that requires real dedication to wellness values and a lot of sustained hard work and coordination. This session will discuss the building blocks of a corporate wellness culture and how to measure and change it.

8. Behaviour Change – The art and science of changing unhealthy behaviour

Motivating people to change behaviour that is harmful to their health can be difficult and tiresome. Changing the style, strategy and focus of employee engagement could improve this experience and create sustained behaviour change for the client. This session will focus on the art and science of changing unhealthy behavior and share best practices of successful behavior change programs. non-profit organisation caring and empowering more than 700 AIDS Orphans to live a purposeful life.
