Corporate Wellness Goes Big in Orlando

Have you searched long and hard to find what works for employers and what doesn't or have you moved from one vendor to another to help bend your cost-curve? Look no further. The Corporate Health and Wellness Association has identified the most influential employer case studies to showcase at the Corporate Wellness Conference, Sept. 27-30, 2015, in Orlando, Fla.


New initiatives at the conference include the 100 Healthiest Employers awards, a conference-wide wearable device challenge, and case studies from renowned employers across the United States. Any executive serious about wellness can't afford to miss this event.

H100 Awards Ceremony

H100 awards, Tuesday, Sept. 29, 2015, will recognize U.S. employers that are most-committed to the health and wellness of their employees and dependents without compromising the bottom line.

Wearable Device Challenge

Wearable fitness trackers have taken the difficulty out of measuring health indicators. But, because of an assortment of manufacturers, choosing a device, in many cases, can be a workout in itself. How do you pick the right devices to fit your employee wellness program and support participation?


The Attendee Movement Challenge will enable conference participants to determine what works best for their workplace. You can wear and evaluate a device as you move about educational sessions and networking meetings. Progress can be monitored in real-time via smartphone or on leaderboards spread throughout the event.

Employer VIP Program

VIPs expect to be treated like the key industry leaders they are. Thanks to some creative approaches that have provided free passes and, in some cases, travel expenses to these executives, you can expect to meet, network and advance more human resource opportunities. "The Employer VIP Program is incredible," said Stephanie Ayala, benefits and wellness manager for Petco Animal Supplies.


"We not only get to attend some of the best sessions of the year, but we are also treated like a true VIP. We get invitations to special events and round-table discussions where we can not only learn about new programs, but also collaborate and share ideas with our HR peers. As a second-time attendee, I can tell say this is the one event I can't afford to miss! In light of tighter budgets allocated for professional growth, the Employer VIP program provides me an opportunity that I would not have had otherwise."
