Panelists include Sarah Holick, Nossé Ovienmhada, Susan Thompson

About this event

Overview:

More than ever, organizations are focused on reaching, connecting, and engaging with their workforce, especially the underserved population.  Reaching these populations becomes critical for creating, implementing, and supporting employee health and wellness programming.  Join us for a panel discussion as we learn about the underserved populations in the workforce, how they remain hidden, and strategies to strengthen and support equity for the underserved workers.

Sarah Holick (Indeed):  Indeed’s values and ESG goals create an equity and people-centric approach that drives unique partnerships between Global Benefits and Diversity, Inclusion &
Belonging and HR teams. It influences our wellbeing strategy, how we communicate, how we make program and policy decisions and how we listen to our employees and the market.

Nossé Ovienmhada (The University of Texas at Austin): UT Austin is committed to improving the health and well-being of faculty and staff. Through targeted partnerships, we identified underserved populations and developed strategies to support their needs, i.e., onsite visits, multilingual translations, and fun interactive activities. We continue to accomplish our mission through improving policies and the environment to make it easier to be healthy on campus.

Susan Thompson (NI/Virgin Pulse):   NI has launched a new wellbeing strategy, brand, and platform. The new strategy is designed to include employees in over 30+ countries. The NI Thrive program is currently identifying less engaged populations and has roadmap for implementing strategies, such as, building a champions network, teaming with other stakeholders, and targeted benefits awareness campaigns to support NI’s wellbeing goals to support employee wellbeing.
