Dr. Bruce Sherman will explore how one critical variable continues to be missing from the HR strategic equation in most organizations--the health and wellbeing of the employees. The evidence for the impact of health and wellbeing issues on all the dimensions of workplace performance--physical, mental, and psychosocial--is substantial and growing. Yet most companies fail to see health as a vital part of human capital, just likes skills and motivation. Making and acting upon the connection between health and productivity is an exciting new opportunity for HR professionals if they will seize it--bringing their understanding of the nature and needs of the changing work force to help guide the best investments in employee health as measured by gains in business performance.
