How to Cut Costs Through a Healthy Employee Program: Unique Simulation Program Retains Employees to Change Behavior

Wednesday 3:00 – 4:00 PM

Session Description

America is sick of being sick. Last year 80,000 people died from flus, colds, pneumonia and sepsis costing U.S. business more than $100 billion.

While flu shots help curb the incidence of illness … it’s not enough to hold back the inevitable tide of loss time and production due to common sickness.
