The theme of this year’s conference is "Creating a Healthy Culture through innovative Engagement Methods” and will address the biggest challenge most employers face—which is getting employees actively “engaged” in their own health and wellness. The conference will showcase best practices and case studies from corporations around the country in order to help HR and wellness professionals identify techniques that work.
“The level of knowledge and networking available at the Corporate Wellness Conference is simply not available anywhere else. But in addition to that, we’ll have some fun and get some good workouts in as well!” Thomas says, speaking of his signature SLIM U™ Corporate Boot Camp taking place each morning at 6:00 AM. Thomas will also hold a book signing at the conference on Thursday evening from 5:30 pm -7:30 pm in the main exhibit hall.
