Electing for a WORKSAFE WORKPLACE – WorkSTEPS Employer Conference

orkSTEPS Symposium 2016 (cvent banner) EMPLOYER-2Click Here to view the webpage and information – Electing for a WORKSAFE WORKPLACE

Our Country is facing a crisis with employment challenges related to managing the aging workforce, returning veterans, and our disabled population to name a few.  Many employers fear these challenges and opt not to effectively address them.  This often results in expensive litigation that ends up eliminating jobs rather than creating them. Our goal is to encourage employers to proactively address these challenges with solutions offered through the sharing of best practices that have proven to be a win-win for both employers and workers.

Topics to include:  Functional Employment Testing | Managing Inclusion, Diversity and Disability in the Workplace | Accommodating Religion in the Workplace: The EEOC’s New Commandments | Workplace Violence and Active Shooter – How to be Prepared! |  Uncharted Waters: Defending Job Analyses in ADA & Section 503 Cases and MORE…

CEUs applied for Human Resource professionals, Case Managers, Nurses and Attorneys.

Wellness programs and small businesses

Wellness programs have become popular with large companies, but small businesses benefit from the programs as well. Here are a few reasons why:

  • Recruitment: small businesses with wellness programs in place have an easier time recruiting employees, as well as retaining them.
  • Profits: small businesses take a hit when employees are not well, which is why a wellness program can positively impact their profits.
  • Stress: small business employees handle more tasks and are placed under just as much, or even more stress, than employees of large companies. Wellness programs not only address physical health, but mental health as well.
  • Morale: wellness programs impact employee relationships, and are proven to reduce the number of sick and personal days taken by employees. They also create a fun and positive working environment that employees enjoy.
  • Your business can benefit from a wellness program no matter its size. Contact a professional at WorkSTEPS to find about the right kind of wellness program for your business by calling (512) 617-4100.
