This week on the HR Happy Hour Show join host Steve Boese and special guest co-host Fran Melmed as we welcome Shape Up co-founder Rajiv Kumar to the show to talk about how taking a more social approach to health and wellness is impacting how organizations are thinking about and deploying wellness initiatives.

We all know that health care costs continue to trend upward, organizations are straining to meet the needs of their employee's medical and benefit costs as well as hold the line on expenses. Increasingly organizations are looking at more innovative and socially oriented programs to make wellness programs more successful and sticky.

Can adding social components to corporate wellness programs make a difference? How can companies get these programs off the ground? What are some of the keys to success? What are the barriers?

I hope you can join Steve, Fran and Rajiv as we talk about 'Taking Wellness Social'.
