Topic: Behavioral and Mental Issues: Navigating the Emotional and Behavioral Side of Return to Work
Ultimately, it will be employees who judge of how well organizations manage COVID-19 return to work. Whether they believe their organization balances business imperatives with their personal safety will be expressed as engagement, commitment, and pride… or the lack there of. This will affect the experience of customers, members, and patients for throughout 2020 and beyond. This session will help to:
- Anticipate emotional and behavioral responses from employees regarding return to work
- Understand the normal emotional roots for many employee (and leader) behaviors
- Develop responses to rebuild/reinforce employee engagement, commitment, and pride

Our mission is to protect members from paying more than they should for healthcare We believe that Healthcare is already expensive enough. While new programs and strategies have been designed to help individuals and organizations optimize their healthcare, people still pay exuberant out of pocket expenses. Let’s face it. The healthcare system in the U.S. was not designed to support consumer’s financial needs. To make matters worse, most people don’t have the resources or support they require to avoid overpaying for their healthcare. We are on a mission to change that. We believe that quality and affordable care begins with quality, affordable interactions. We live this belief by bringing clarity to an unclear process so we can inform decision making, empower consumers, and reduce the overall cost of healthcare. With over 25+ years of experience in the healthcare industry, we’ve seen enough. It’s time to reframe how we take care of our people.
