Event Description



Find Out What Behavioral Economics Has Taught Us about Employee Wellness

It is one thing to know how to alter one’s behavior, but it is an entirely different matter to be motivated to do so. It is felt that employee motivation is the key factor in determining the success or failure of work site wellness programs and their ability to reduce health care costs and increase productivity. Health professionals have developed many behavioral techniques to help employees make lifestyle changes. Despite these methodologies, the majority of employees are unsuccessful in modifying their behavior long-term.

In an entertaining and informative manner, expert Don Powell will present the key behavior modification techniques, including the strategic use incentive that can help initiate and maintain employee motivation to make positive lifestyle changes and become wiser health care consumers. The objective of this session is to prepare the attendees with:

  • The ability to describe 2 theories of behavior change
  • The ability to state the 5 components of the B.E.M.E.M. Model.
