9 action items for a stronger comms-and-wellness collaboration

Workshop focuses on crafting programs and messaging for more effective workplace wellness initiatives.

How comms and wellness can collaborate

Communications is at the center of workplace wellness. It’s an essential linchpin that defines organizational engagement and non-engagement—and success or failure.

Workplace well-being has become an essential element for organizations as they seek to foster a positive culture and improve employee health and morale. It’s become a means to attract and retain top talent and indeed, reduce costs associated with health insurance and recruitment.

Part of that evolution has been inter-discipline collaboration. Wellness directors work with HR and finance, training and benefits. And comms pros plan the messaging for every initiative. They help measure the results.

These and more workplace dynamics will be explored—with strategic insights and actionable takeaways—during a special three-and-a-half-hour Ragan workshop on June 30. In the workshop, speakers will describe how they’re building and fostering workplace cultures focused on employee well-being. They’ll offer advice and examples of how wellness and communications pros are partnering with stakeholders across their organizations to maximize benefits that result in happier and healthier employees.
