Burlington, VT 05401
Event Description: 

If you are a Supervisor, Human Resource Manager, or Business Owner, no one has to tell you that the most disturbing thing happening in every business in our country is the fact that despite the technology and all the time, energy, and money that we spend on healthcare, people are just getting sicker, and it is costing you a fortune! Between people missing work due to sickness or the lost productivity that comes when people are sitting in their seats, but are so sick or overmedicated it is affecting their energy, creativity and focus. The thing that is the most frustrating is that this is completely preventable. There are systems that can be applied that get people healthier, keep them healthy and prevent problems in the future. Dr. Heather Rice committed to reaching out to her community to share what she has learned after recognizing that too many people were already sick, suffering and overmedicated by the time they came into her office.  She now works with corporations to help them change the culture in their company from sick care to wellness.

If you want to find out how you can expand (or start) your wellness program for your employees, join Dr. Heather Rice for a Wellness in the Workplace Workshop from 12:00 noon to 1:30 PM at the Chamber (60 Main Street, Burlington). Topics that will be covered include how to reduce health care costs, minimize absenteeism, understand and address presenteeism, and maximize employee engagement, morale, creativity and productivity. You will leave with a clear plan of action on how to take your company’s Wellness initiatives to the next level whether you have 1 employee or hundreds, no matter what your budget is.

Sign up for free! She will even cover your lunch!
