#co_health tweet chat: small steps to big changes
(may 16 at noon ET)

May 7, 2012

in cohealth

current conversations about workplace wellness often turn to incentive design: how can we get employees to do what we want them to do and not do what we don’t? for what should we pay incentives? how often should we pay out? what will be most effective and lead employees to have “skin in the game”?

the focus on incentive design, among other tactics, stems from an overwhelming need to increase employee involvement in their health. by that i mean participating in wellness activities, of course, but also making active, informed decisions about their health—every day, no matter where they are.

could there be another tack to creating this type of involvement that doesn’t involve incentives?

tweet chat agenda

on wednesday, may 16, at noon ET, kristi durazo, a senior strategy advisor at the american heart association, joins the #co_health chat to talk about designing environments and experiences that lead to healthy choices. we’ll discuss how we can:

  • make it easy to do the right thing
  • ask people to do little things that eventually lead them to bigger changes
  • support and encourage remote workers who are outside our healthy environment
  • get at-work influencers to model healthy behaviors
we’ll talk about theory and practice, and invite you to share what’s worked and what hasn’t.
