Wednesday, October 28 - Thursday, October 29

A live, virtual experience that will help you lean into the unknown, challenge paradigms, and create action.

 
Flourishing is the state of developing in a healthy and impressively successful way, especially as the result of a favorable environment. To design places where people flourish, we have the opportunity to enhance our workplace cultures to be intentionally supportive of the wellbeing of the whole person. As employee wellness continues to evolve into an organizational culture movement, there is a remarkable opportunity to think more expansively about what wellness is and how you can support your people to flourish. 
 
Join us at the 29th Annual Employee Wellbeing Conference for an inspiring learning and networking experience filled with emerging ideas focusing on how to transform organizational culture, impact wellbeing, and create meaningful experiences! Don’t miss Wisconsin's premier employee wellness event to explore topics such as engaging committed leadership, social connectedness, organizational resilience, mental wellness, financial insecurity at work, and inclusive opportunities to support wellness for the whole person.
