CIS Benefits: Worksite Wellness Workshop

  • Content/Overview:
    CIS Benefits is hosting a free day-and-a-half wellness workshop, focused on helping CIS Benefits’ members in their quest to build and sustain a results-oriented wellness program. Remember, healthy employees spend less on health care, take fewer sick days, and are more productive.

    Thursday, 12:30 – 5:30 pm
    CIS Benefits staff and our benefits partners will review timely wellness topics such as:
    • Importance of movement
    • Stress reduction
    • Mindfulness

    We will also be demonstrating a brand-new, free resource, Wellworks for You. With Wellworks, you’ll be able to track your employer-sponsored activities through a customized website for your entity.

    Friday, 8:30 am – 3:00 pm
    Friday’s Worksite Wellness Workshop will feature guest presenter Laura Putnam ( for a high energy, movement-based day. Laura will talk about the importance of infusing movement into our everyday schedule. Laura is a dynamic speaker who gets to the heart of how changing the wellness culture benefits an employer, and why we should be focusing on Value on Investment (VOI) more than Return on Investment (ROI).
