2013 Work Life Council Forum
Gaining the "Employer of Choice" Advantage: Linking Work-Life to Bottom Line Business Performance
Work life integration is a critical component that increasingly impacts business success. Higher demand and fewer resources are the new normal. Feelings of overload and burnout are affecting the bottom-line performance of today's workforce.
Organizations that more fully energize employees by promoting their physical, emotional and social wellbeing will gain the "Employer of Choice" advantage needed, to attract, engage and retain top talent.
The 2013 Work Life Council Forum will bring national and local experts to the stage to provide best practices and actionable solutions to drive organizational change needed to remain competitive in the ever changing, 24/7 workforce.
