Health and Well-Being as a Competitive Advantage -- Invitation to Work Room

By Russell Benaroya

There are few people I have met that are as interesting and captivating as Andrew Sykes.  Every conversation I have had with Andrew has helped me better understand, well… people… and how to build experiences that can actually engage people to improve their health and quality of life.  It’s through what Andrew calls the science of habits

As the founder of a product called Tandem which helps employers and health plans engage individuals to take specific health actions, I’ve had a lot to gain from the science of habits.  That’s why I’m so excited that Andrew has decided to take his knowledge to a broader audience with a program he is launching called Work Room. 

Recruiting top talent to organizations is hard.  Keeping people operating at their best once they have joined is critical!  Often times employees aren’t able to give their best at work because other areas of their life create stress and anxiety, or just plain get in the way.  Many employers have taken an active role in helping improve the well-being of employees because they know that healthier employees leads to more productive employees and reduces healthcare costs.  But the question is how?  Solutions today to engage employees around well-being have been inconclusive at best.  Yet there is data that shows that engaged employees do indeed work better and cost less.  That’s not the issue.  The challenge is implementation - putting strategies and tactics in place that can help employers and their employees reap these benefits.  This is what Work Room is all about and why we're excited to be a part of it.  

Work Room is a 3-day interactive workshop to help employers become “employers of choice” by investing in the health, happiness and security of their employees.  It is about giving an employer a competitive advantage with the take home tools and techniques that can make a difference quickly.  It is about building confidence and motivation to critically assess solutions that claim to activate employees but typically under deliver on results.  It is about acknowledging that every employee is different and your desired actions for them should be aligned with their interests, capabilities and motivations.

On October 4-6 in Seattle, WA, Andrew Sykes is presenting Work Room, a transformational series aimed at organizational leaders that believe the health and well-being of their employees should be a strategic advantage. They are organizing Work Room in partnership with Vivacity, a wellbeing and productivity consulting company.  We are excited to be presenting Tandem at the conference on October 6th to show how we apply some of Andrew’s strategies in a digital solution for employees.
