Anderson to address use of financial incentives and technology to improve employee well-being programs.

The StayWell Company announced today that company co-founder David Anderson, Ph.D. will present at the Annual Art & Science of Health Promotion Conference sponsored by the American Journal of Health Promotion (AJHP) on March 27-31 in Colorado Springs, CO.

Anderson, who currently works with StayWell as an independent consultant, will present two breakout sessions. The first session, “Superchargers: Best Technologies for Sustained Engagement,” runs from 11:00 a.m. to 12:05 p.m., on March 30. The presentation will focus on using technology to invigorate traditional best practices like culture support, population awareness, unlocking intrinsic motivation, health coaching, and social support.

Anderson’s second breakout session, “Wellness incentives: Can they work? Are they worth it?” runs from 11:00 a.m. to 12:05 p.m. on March 31. During this presentation, Anderson will provide perspective on various incentive strategies used in health and well-being programs, as well as the role of culture and intrinsic motivation in boosting employee engagement in health.

“Technology alone will not transform population health. Best practices will ultimately still include high-touch professional support to meet both individual and workforce needs,” said Anderson. “However, the right technologies can supercharge traditional best practices and more cost-effectively engage a majority of the workforce in activities that improve health and well-being.”

The Art & Science of Health Promotion conference brings together professionals and thought leaders with a passion for health and well-being. The theme for 2017 highlights the role of awareness, motivation, skills, and opportunities for health promotion, and finding a balance among these elements. The event offers a unique venue where attendees can meet and learn, share experiences, connect, and collaborate with industry and academic experts.
