A review of last year's Pre-Conference:


Last year,  Vic Strecher, PhD, MPH | University of Michigan School of Public Health, led a half day workshop titled "Life On Purpose: Helping People Live for What Matters Most". In this workshop, Dr. Vic Strecher discussed the latest behavioral science approaches, advanced mobile technology, biometrics, relevant big data, and predictive modeling that will redefine our concept of “health” and the approach we take in our industry.  

Key Takeaways:
• An authentic look into developing one’s Purpose, one of life’s strongest intrinsic motivators.
• Utilization of the SPACE concept (Sleep, Presence, Activity, Creativity, Eating) as key behaviors that drive energy & willpower.
• Determining your core values that ground behavior and interactions with others.
• Designing of one’s purpose should encompass Personal, Family, Work and Community components.
• Exploring ways employees can create balance between both their work and their family lives and how they can develop their own energy and willpower resources to better align with work and family purposes. 
• Determine methods for identifying company-wide alignment and mis-alignment between work and family purposes and how HR professionals can use this information to improve productivity and engagement in their organization.
