National Wellness Summit Set to Boost Workplace Productivity

Saturday, August 09, 2014

People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP) supported by the Management Association of the Philippines (MAP) will be holding the National Wellness Summit scheduled this August 28, 2014 at SMX Convention Center. The event is a co-located event of the International Beauty, Health and Wellness Expo (IBHWEX). The event will discuss and prepare business leaders in incorporating corporate wellness in their organization. The event is expected to be attended by their 500 company members. The said event will also feature Exhibits of Best Wellness Practices of member companies.

According to the study of International Labor Organization (ILO) which revealed that every day, 6,300 people die as a result of occupational accidents or work-related diseases and more than 2.3 million deaths per year and 317 million accidents occur on the job annually resulting in extending absences from work. The human cost of this daily adversity is vast and the economic burden of poor occupational safety and health practices is estimated at 4 per cent of global Gross Domestic Product each year.

With this alarming data, business owners and entrepreneurs realized that they have to start adopting corporate wellness in their organization - a proactive approach to help employees avoid risks in acquiring diseases.  Studies have showed that Health at Work Programs can be very effective at reducing injuries, illnesses and fatalities, and may transform workplace culture that can lead into higher productivity, quality of life, and greater employee satisfaction.

The event features the following learning topics and resource speakers: Psychosocial Health and Culture of Care by Dra. Ma. Lourdes A. Carandang of Ateneo De Manila University, Incentives and Outcome-Based Wellness Programs , From Bandage to Liberation, Understanding Emotional Intelligence, Organizational Spirituality, Small Steps for Sound Physical Awareness and Social Shift.
