From Chicago Regional Summit Health Seminar to Guadalajara OECD World Forum


i-genius was recently in Chicago for its regional summit seminar as part our Global Centre for Healthy Workplaces (GCHW) project. The GCHW and the Health Enhancement Research Organisation (HERO) played host to the successful global seminar, which focused on key health and productivity challenges and examples of good practices applied on a global scale.

The opening session highlighted the latest well-being and workplace health trends and featured Doug Stover from Gallup as well as Barry Hall (Buck Consultants) and Wolf Kirsten (Global Centre for Healthy Workplaces). Stephen Bevan from the Work Foundation gave an excellent account of what does (and does not) make for a healthy workplace drawing from examples within the UK. Ron Joines, Global Medical Director at GSK, provided an enlightening case study of his company’s healthy workplace programme.

The seminar concluded with an interactive panel discussing the challenges of developing global metrics featuring Wayne Burton from American Express, Howard Kraft from Mercer and Zorianna Hyworon from Infotech.
