IBIBridge Pilot – Mental Health in the Workforce
IBIBridge is designed to connect employers to support their discussion of strategies, insights, experiences and solutions to their common health and productivity issues, and to provide them access to relevant subject-matter experts. While a specific issue will be highlighted each quarter, employers are free to post any and all questions they have for exploration.
The IBIBridge pilot will commence in early September with a focus on mental health in the workforce (stigma, access to care, important outcomes). The program will begin with a Virtual Roundtable on Thursday, September 5, 2019 from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm EDT and will be open to all IBI members.
The Virtual Roundtable will begin with an overview by an employer panel to frame the issues, followed by questions from the audience and panel responses. Employer panelists for the first Virtual Roundtable include Boeing, Comcast (in the internal speaker approval process), Gap/Old Navy, Microsoft and Facebook (in the internal speaker approval process). Following the Virtual Roundtable, the discussion of the topic will continue on the IBIBridge platform.
Subject-matter experts will address key questions in the IBIBridge discussions but direct exchanges between employers and subject-matter experts will take place only after being initiated by the employer. Employer discussions within IBIBridge will be confidential and will be used by IBI only to help understand employer needs and support IBI research and related programs.
Each quarter, IBIBridge will address a new issue important to employers, while supporting continued discussion of previously highlighted issues and employer-generated topics via the online platform.
To participate in the Virtual Roundtable and to register as a subject-matter expert in IBIBridge, each individual must register. The registration form also allows participants to identify the issues they are interested in for future IBIBridge topics. There is no cost for IBI supplier member participation, but the number of subject-matter experts for each company is limited by membership level.
