Join us on May 12, 2015 for a dinner presentation at the Christiana Hilton at 5:30 pm.    J. David Johnson,  a Vice President and Senior Consultant with Sibson Consulting will speak on the topic of Nudging Employees To Better Health and Retirement – An HR Executive's Guide To Behavioral Economics”.

 

Overview

Employees routinely make poor decisions about their health, and how they save for retirement, impacting themselves and their employer.  So how can HR leaders get employees to make better choices?  We will outline basic principles of Behavioral Economics to “nudge” employees to adopt healthier habits and save more for retirement.  We cite research and give specific examples of how employers can provide the knowledge, motivation and resources to help employees:

 

  •   Improve nutrition
  •   Increase physical activity / ensure adequate sleep
  •   Reduce risky behaviors such as tobacco use and excessive alcohol use
  •  Enhance overall wellbeing through stress reduction and better work / life balance
  •  Become better healthcare consumers
  •  Understand what they actually need to save for retirement
  • Make better choices about their retirement savings
