CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Evive Health CEO Peter Saravis will address the challenges employers face in engaging employees in corporate health and wellness programs at the 24th Annual Benefits Forum and Expo, presented by Employee Benefit News magazine.
“Most employers today have some kind of wellness or disease management program in place, but many are unable to get a significant number of their employees to participate in these programs,” said Saravis. “To achieve the kind of engagement that will lower health costs and have an impact, employers must be able to deliver targeted and highly personalized communications that engage, motivate and activate employees to take positive health actions.”
Saravis’ presentation on “Data Driven, Value-Based Personalized Health Communications” will be presented on September 26 at 11 a.m. He will be joined by Susan Bailey, MS, CHES, IC, program manager of health and wellness for DTE Energy, who will discuss the kinds of targeted communications programs that substantially increased wellness engagement at her company.
“The newest health engagement technologies can merge data mining with behavioral economics strategies to increase employee engagement by as much as 19 percent in the first year alone,” added Saravis.
The Employee Benefit News Benefits Forum and Expo (BF&E) is the largest event in the nation solely dedicated to employee benefits. In its 24th year, BF&E continues to be the event of choice for senior benefits professionals in America. The 2011 event convenes September 25-27 in Dallas and is dedicated to helping benefits professionals understand future benefits trends, challenges and solutions.
