Annual Employer Leadership Summit Inspires Attendees to Discover Purpose-Driven Solutions for Optimal Health

At our 2018 Annual Employer Leadership Summit (in its 11th year!), we explored the role of PURPOSE in creating vibrant, high-performing, and HEALTHY organizations.

We discussed ways to tackle the tough issues of our time, including the alarming rate of obesity and the opioid epidemic, and focused on breakthrough innovations and demonstrated results.

Interactive polling, engaging sponsors, and robust networking promoted a sense of optimism, collaboration and action. A blog about the Summit can be found here. You can find photos, presentations and highlights here.
