Throughout the pandemic, HR leaders have risen to the occasion time and time again.
On top of managing an ever-growing array of health and wellbeing benefits, they and their teams have taken on expanded responsibilities to ensure employees remain safe and healthy—both inside and outside the office—while still being able to do their jobs. They’ve gone through seemingly endless cycles of communications on topics such as workplace policy, testing, vaccinations, and boosters, and they’ve also brought on new programs to address growing health and wellbeing conditions, such as the country’s current mental health crisis.
Understandably, all of this has contributed to increased levels of stress for HR leaders. In a recent survey conducted by Paychex among 1,000 HR decision-makers in the U.S., 98% indicated that the pandemic transformed their role, and 70% said this has been one of the most challenging years of their career. What’s more, another study showed that 77% of HR professionals experienced burnout during the pandemic—a 30% increase from February 2020.
Now more than ever, it’s critical that HR leaders are equipped with the most up-to-date and best-in-class data and insights to help them keep up with the ever-evolving needs of their population, anticipate health trends and how they’ll shape benefits design, determine the best programs to invest in, and identify the best practices to developing and maintaining a strong culture of health. The more support and intel they have, the better off everyone in the organization will be.
That’s why, on April 5, 2022, we’re bringing together the brightest minds in employer benefits and healthcare and sharing the latest data insights at Illuminate: Workforce Health, Reimagined, Castlight’s new thought leadership event. Together, we’re going to explore the trends and best practices that will transform workforce health.
What Is Illuminate?
Illuminate is a day filled with big ideas, intimate conversations, and abundant opportunities to mingle with industry peers and engage with innovative thought leaders on the future of digital health, the latest data-driven insights on workforce health, and the next generation of benefits.
We’re going to think outside the box and talk about critical (yet often unspoken) health topics, such as:
- Women at Work: From Maternity to Menopause
- What the Pandemic Taught Us About Grief & Loss
- The Elephant in the Room: The Impact of Deferred Care During COVID
- Can We Talk About the C Word? Why Employers Need to Better Support Holistic Cancer Care
- America’s Vulnerable Populations Live Inside (Not Outside) Your Workforce
- … and more!
Who Will Be There?
We have invited leading benefit consultants, healthcare thought leaders, digital health partners, and some of our all-star customers. However, if you’re interested in attending, you may request an invite starting January 4, 2022.
Keynote Speaker: Mel Robbins
We’re thrilled to share that Mel Robbins—one of the leading voices in personal development and transformation—will be kicking off Illuminate. Robbins is the international bestselling author of The 5 Second Rule and The High 5 Habit and has the number one podcast on Audible. Her TEDx talk, which has 27 million views (and counting), is one of the most popular of all time. Robbins’ groundbreaking work on behavior change and motivation is used by healthcare professionals and the world’s leading brands to inspire people to be more confident, effective, and fulfilled.
Where Will Illuminate Be?
Illuminate will be held in the amazing Portofino Hotel & Marina in Redondo Beach, CA. We’ve planned plenty of time for attendees to connect with new peers and catch up with old colleagues, stroll along the beautiful beach boardwalk, and participate in an array of wellness activities.
We are so excited to gather such an incredible group of people together to reimagine workforce health. Keep checking back for exciting speaker updates and a full agenda.
