The following speakers will address Maryland Workplace Health and Wellness Symposium attendees:
Tom Rath, researcher and author of five international bestsellers, will share his latest research about how small choices profoundly affect our daily well-being and effectiveness at work. Drawing on the latest research from business, psychology and economics, Tom’s presentation will focus on the most practical changes we can make to create better days for ourselves and others. He will address the importance of meaningful work, the influence of relationships and interactions, and how we can create the physical energy we need to be our best every day.
M.C. Schraefel, Ph.D., professor of computer science and human performance at the University of Southampton, England, will provide attendees with insights on how to acknowledge what’s exceptional in our lives and improve what’s not. Her presentation: “From Resilience to Brilliance at Work” will focus on techniques for improving creativity, health and well-being in the workplace. Ms. Schraefel is also a fellow of the British Computer Society and a senior researcher fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering.
Stacy Molander, vice president of strategic initiatives for Partner for a Healthier America (PHA), will provide first-hand insights into the projects, progress and direction of PHA. PHA is committed to working with the private sector to ensure the health of our nation’s youth by solving the childhood obesity crisis. PHA’s work centers on making healthier choices more affordable and accessible to families and children across the country. Founded in 2010 in conjunction with, but independent from, Let’s Move!, PHA is supported by honorary chair First Lady Michelle Obama.
The symposium will feature two panel discussions: “Engaging the Unengaged Employee” and “Health Reform and the Changing Healthcare Landscape.”
The event is presented by Chesapeake Employers’ Insurance Company.
