Jan 24, 2019

Discussion topics: 

  • Will taking a more holistic approach that incorporates healthcare and wellbeing become the norm in the future?
  • How can health and wellbeing programmes be part of the prevention and how will this grow as a practice?
  • How can employers get engagement and ensure employees are leveraging their benefits in an increasingly remote working environment?
  • How is the use of technology changing healthcare provision as an employee benefit?
  • Musculoskeletal issues have long been the trend for employees using their healthcare benefits, will this continue? Or are we seeing a trend towards mental healthcare?
  • Are there any particular trends we are seeing in young people new to the workforce that will herald change for the industry in the future?
