We Are Treating the Symptoms and Not the Disease
Doug Stover, Senior Managing Consultant, GALLUP
Research tells us that people who score higher in wellbeing perform better on the job and have lower healthcare costs - two vital factors to executives, community leaders, and of course, to all of us as individuals. But, very few Americans across the country are achieving a high level of wellbeing. While many employers report offering solutions to curtail unhealthy behaviors, a vast majority of employees see their job as a detriment to their overall wellbeing. Are your investments treating the symptoms or the disease?

The Power of Purpose
Mark Demich, VP Leadership Development, HYATT HOTELS
This session will focus on how purpose can drive everything from operations to branding to HR. Hyatt is focused on aligning (and in some cases) designing itself around its "Higher Purpose." Examples and discussion will center on how "Higher Purpose" can drive choices and changes within operations, brands, marketing, corporate social responsibility and HR.
