    Dear SHRM Members and Guests:

    Please join us for a strategic wellness presentation with
    Seattle-Based Author, Speaker and Wellness Strategist

    M. Nicole Nazzaro
     Program Overview:  This program offering is titled
    "Being Healthy is Good Business: Creating an Effective Wellness Culture in your Workplace"

    Benefits of attending this presentation include:

    1. Understand different methods for calculating the costs of employee illness (absenteeism, turnover, increased health care costs) and the potential ROI of creating a company wellness culture to address these issues; and effectively communicate the potential ROI of a company wellness culture to CFOs, CEOs and other top-level decision makers.
    2. Develop a strategy for creating a wellness culture in their workplace that considers the culture, expectations and needs of all stakeholders.
    3. Create options for implementing a wellness program in phases so as to implement change in a way that increases stakeholder support, reduces resistance, and over time becomes a natural extension of the overall company culture.
