How does the physical, mental, social and financial wellness of your people affect your business? The cost of unwell workers represents 10-15% of global economic output and at any one moment, most of your employees are experiencing at least one issue with their well-being.

Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) work, but only support the 10% of people that reach out. How do you take that clinical support to 100% of your people, 100% of the time? With a technology-driven approach focused on Total Well-being, you can build a more resilient workforce that’s  proactive about  well-being, as well as being more engaged, more loyal and more productive. 

As Chester Elton, expert and speaker on workplace culture points out, the financial performance of high engagement organizations is 44% higher than those with low engagement, due to decreased absenteeism and increased productivity. 

Chester will also lead a fireside chat with a panel of experts on:

  • The importance of a culture that supports employee well-being as critical to the success of your business
  • The evolution of clinical counseling to support a wide variety of modern day stressors and make your people the best they can be
  • How technology can take that robust support from 10% to 100% of your people, 100% of the time 
  • Tangible business outcomes due to a healthy, happy and productive workforce

 Including special guest Alastair Macdonald, SVP HR for Nestle Canada

Drawing on over 20 years of research, Chester has found that in the highest performing workplace cultures, leaders not only create higher levels of employee engagement but they also create environments that support productivity and performance, in which employees feel enabled. Furthermore, they help employees feel a greater sense of well-being, making people feel more energized.

We know that Employee Assistance Programs work but traditional EAPs only support a small percentage of employees in times of crisis and Rita has been fundamental in expanding the reach of clinical support through chat and video. 

The next step is making employee assistance proactive, rather than reactive, to support and drive the culture of an organization and overcome barriers to performance and productivity.

For an employee well-being initiative to be successful, it needs to drive persistent engagement, not just offer support in times of crisis. A mobile-first technology approach not only delivers a better user experience but also gives employees access to powerful wellness tools that they can access anytime, anywhere, encouraging them be proactive about their own well-being and make small, daily improvements to behavior.

Employees believe that employers can play a role in reducing the incidence of people who go on leave due to wellness issues. Things like bad communication, harassment, and conflict have been identified as cultural factors in absenteeism. To this end Paula’s research looks at the impact of predictive analytics to drive a healthy, happy and productive workforce. 


Most of the world’s 3.4 billion workers are unwell. Around 76% are  physically unfit,  one billion suffer from anxiety, and one in four have mental disorders. The global workforce is ageing rapidly and is intensely multi-generational. One in five feel lonely, while 74% live with economic insecurity. 

So how does the physical, mental, social and financial wellness of your people affect your business? The cost of unwell workers represents 10-15% of global economic output and at any one moment, most of your employees are experiencing at least one issue with their well-being.

Join the Total Well-being Keynote to hear more from a panel of experts on:

Business success is inextricably tied to having a healthy and motivated workforce and Nestle is equally committed to the total health of each one of its 3,500 employees. 
According to Alastair Macdonald, the duration of workplace absences due to mental health issues are at least double what they are for traditional musculoskeletal injuries, so it not only makes business sense to advocate strategies to help employees cope with mental health issues, but it is the right thing to do.
