    Workplace Wellness, Self-Funding & More

    in Business

    On this week's program, hosts Doug Field and Ron Bachman are live in the studio with guests from Onlife Health and Apollo Healthcare.


    The first guest is Danny Timblin, president and CEO of Onlife Health. In this interview, Danny and the hosts will talk about the evolution of health care consumerism and the landscape for workplace wellness today. Ten years ago, the discussion focused on high-deductible health plans and health savings accounts. Five years later, the conversation turned to return-on-investment with a keen focus on the ROI for wellness and related services. Today, things are different; many employers are interested in wellness because it is the right thing to do. It is truly about understanding the individual person and putting forward a set of services and technology at the right point in the individual's daily life so that they continue to press forward with good habits.


    The second guest is Mark Ilgenfritz, CEO of Apollo Healthcare. In this interview, Mark and the hosts will discuss the combination of wellness programs with self-funding. Mid-sized employers have an important question to answer regarding health benefits. For the past thirty years, they have generally made annual decisions based on annual rate increases and annual rate shopping. What if they made one decision for five years, instead of five decisions for one year? Self-funding in combination with the latest claim management technologies and wellness programs can – probably – lower costs. Apollo’s multi-year, strategic captive program absorbs excess risk and offers the safest self-funding plan design in the industry.

    How to Recognize and Stop Workplace Bullying and Harassment

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, August 26, 2015, from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).


    Last week we talked about why multi-generational leadership activism is in, and this week we’re going to talk about how to recognize and stop workplace bullying and harassment.


    You may have read the Amazon news recently about their toxic workplace culture. While not new news, the unfortunate fact is there are too many other “bullying” and undermining cultures in business today.


    Like pollution, workplace bullying and harassment does not usually kill you right away, but an enormous amount of misery is caused — and time wasted — because of unkind words and behavior that cause hurt feelings that take a toll on workplace productivity and relative happiness. 


    All of us can take leadership roles in helping prevent and stop harmful behavior by example, create clear boundaries about what is and is not acceptable, and a plan for upholding these boundaries.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as they talk about how to recognize and stop workplace bullying and harassment with this week’s guest: Irene van der Zande, Executive Director and Founder of Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower International, a global nonprofit leader dedicated to teaching emotional and physical safety skills for people of all ages and abilities.


    Thank you to all our TalentCulture sponsors, partners and supporters!

    Workplace Wellness & Mental Health

    in Business

    On this week's show, hosts Andrew Dietz and Doug Field will welcome special guests from Interactive Health and Ginger.io for a comprehensive discussion of employee health -- from physical wellness to mental health. 


    The first guest on this week's program will be Cathy Kenworthy, president and CEO of Interactive Health, the country’s leading provider of health management solutions. Successful companies create healthier organizations by improving the health of their employees. Wellness programs not only improve employee health, they also have a vital role in expanding the fast-growing healthcare consumerism movement. In this interview, Cathy and the hosts will discuss the challenges and rewards of personalizing wellness programs, how to analyze aggregate wellness program data to create better health plans and how wellness initiatives are helping to change health care in America. 


    The second guest on this week's show will be Dr. Anmol Madan, CEO, Ginger.io, a digital mental health service based in San Francisco. In this interview, Anmol and the hosts will discuss why smartphones have become relevant for your mental health. The smartphone is the most powerful sensor in health care right now. Because a smartphone is almost always with its user, the data collected through its sensors are very good proxy to understand the user’s behavioral patterns, particularly in terms of physical social isolation for people diagnosed with depression. Ginger.io uses the smartphone to deliver personalized care to people that would otherwise not have access to data-driven, evidence-based mental health care.
