10:35 am – 11:35 am
The World Health Organization (WHO) emphasizes integration and collaboration between business units and disciplines as one of the Five Keys to Healthy Workplaces. However, in many large organizations health and safety personnel work in one silo, wellness professionals work in another and human resource professionals in a third silo, all for the improvement of the health and well-being of employees. The integration of programs and breaking of traditional boundaries is essential to the success of a healthy workplace strategy. Chevron has been able to create a synergism of prevention through the systematic integration across functional groups such as wellness, HES (Health, Environment & Safety), HR, Benefits and EAP. Effective execution includes delivering data driven communication plans, implementing an integrated referral system that addresses safety, injury prevention, physical and psychological well-being, highlighting partnerships across groups within the Medical Department and integrating with Chevron’s social investment approach. After completing this session, participants will be able to: (1) Recognize the value of the integration of programs and breaking of traditional boundaries to the success of a healthy workplace strategy, (2) Describe how collaboration between functional groups will lead to enhanced employee well-being and deliver business results, and (3) Identify specific strategies and mechanisms to execute systematic integration.
