The Oregon Healthy Workforce Center (OHWC) Partner’s Luncheon was attended by company presidents, vice presidents, directors, managers, coordinators, administrators, specialists, supervisors and technicians – reflecting the full gamut of the workforce. Just the right group for the topic of the Luncheon: How the OHWC should disseminate best practice safety, health, wellness and well-being tools and program toolkits to businesses and public organizations in a form that they could readily use. The number of registrants in each industry sector is shown in the graph at the bottom of the blog.
Keynote speaker Lee Newman (pictured below) described Health Links Colorado that is bringing wellness programs to small businesses using a novel program of self-assessment/certification that provides direction on addressing needs and identifies consultants to support the businesses to implement the solutions.
OHWC Director Kent Anger described a best practices dissemination concept illustrated by a website, and invited attendees to provide feedback on the approach. Pictured below are the ‘work tables’ where facilitators are recording participant feedback.
The presentations by Lee and Kent will be posted at the OHWC Partner’s Luncheon website by the end of March, 2014.
