Wellbeing: The Foundation of Employee Engagement


There's one thing that every organization wants — a great culture and the accumulation of daily positive employee experiences that attracts and retains top talent and inspires them to perform their best.  The wellbeing of employees is a cornerstone to their experience at work and beyond. When someone is physically, mentally, and financially well they will positively impact your organizational culture and drive business results.
Carrie Varoquiers, Vice President of Global Impact at Workday, which was just named as one of the “100 Best Companies to Work For” by Fortune and Great Place to Work for the third consecutive year, will share insights from the technology company’s wellbeing program, which has seen more than 80% engagement among employees.  She will be joined by Chris Boyce, CEO of Virgin Pulse, who will discuss the link between wellbeing, purpose-driven work, employee engagement, culture, and business outcomes.
In this session you will learn:

  • How to build an employee experience that align with corporate values and fosters a great organizational culture
  • How to start an employee engagement and wellbeing initiative without a dedicated headcount or budget
  • How to drive employee engagement over the long haul without cash incentives
