Human Resource Executive Forum® Explores Healthy Employees, Healthy Employer Brands

$200.00 Savings Through Feb. 25

HORSHAM, PA--(Marketwire - February 8, 2011) - The Second Annual Human Resource Executive Forum®, being held March 14-16 in New York City, is the place where high-level HR professionals go for some real "R&R": Real-world solutions and ROI. While hardly a spa getaway, the event produced by Human Resource Executive® magazine will feature insightful discussions on recruiting, benefits, talent management, HR technology and leadership that are sure to revitalize any HR department.

On the topic of well being, there has been much talk about the critical role wellness plays in helping to control skyrocketing healthcare costs. While many programs rewarding healthy behavior have the best of intentions, the verdict is still out on just how effective they are in improving employee health and the bottom line. In Is Wellness Worth It? Pursuing a Real ROI for Wellness, Michael Miele, president of the Healthcare Analytics Group at Gallagher Business Services, will lead a panel discussion on best practices to ensure your wellness efforts are truly boosting the overall health of your workforce and your business.

While at the Forum, one can also learn about proven ways to strengthen your employer brand. Few things are more crucial to an organization's ability to attract and retain talent than the brand it projects as an employer. Given the proliferation of websites that facilitate and encourage critiques of how organizations are run, employer brands have never been more vulnerable. But while the risks are very real, so too are the opportunities.

In Managing the Employer Brand: Are You Doing All You Can to Promote and Protect It?, Libby Sartain, former Chief HR Officer of Yahoo! and Southwest Airlines and author of Brand for Talent and Brand From the Inside, will moderate a panel of HR leaders as they discuss these challenges and ways to strengthen employer reputations. "Now is the time for organizations to refresh their employer brands," Sartain said. "As the talent marketplace heats up, an authentic employer brand can be the organization's best tool for attracting and retaining the right workers at the right time."
