* Forum Sponsorships:  Provide an employer client (health benefits professional) to participate on a speakers’ panel. The employer will share a brief, non-branded case study presentation to include business case for offering the solution, program strategy, outcomes & key-takeaways. It is the expectation of MBGH that the forum sponsor provides an employer name and contact information early in advance of the program. We prefer in-person speakers but can accommodate virtual presenters as needed. The employer does not have to be a MBGH member nor located in the Midwest.

Our employer-only annual wellness forum is one of our most well-attended programs with historical attendance of over 100 attendees (employers and sponsor staff only). As the wellbeing industry evolves to align with the emphasis on whole person health, wellness and benefit leaders need new tools and strategies to lead the change within their organizations. This year’s program will focus on the evolving wellbeing landscape, including: The importance of really knowing your employee population and how to use novel approaches to drive engagement; The value of owning your mistakes and changing course when your strategy isn’t working; The impact of the workplace culture on your efforts; How to transform your employee wellbeing program for maximum impact; How current legislation is impacting employer-sponsored wellness programs and why pending court cases continue to change the rules.
