Can You Really Afford to Skip a Safety Incentive Program?

Posted by Charlla Feller-Davis

My first job out of college was with a small television news station in East Texas. I just happened to be on-site at a chemical plant one morning when a fiery explosion lit up the sky and triggered complete chaos. It’s not surprising that my cameraman and I were immediately escorted off the premises by a small team of very large no-nonsense men.

In the days that followed, we were able to piece together what had happened from the reticent public relations rep. It was a nightmare scenario that no company wants to happen—an unfortunate accident that has played out many more times since that day.

Can Employee Wellness Programs Cure What Ails Us?

Posted by Charlla Feller-Davis

For years we’ve been hearing the same beleaguered declaration: The cost of healthcare is going up. It’s an understatement that doesn’t come close to reflecting the magnitude of how much costs are climbing. Experts report costs have increased 274 times since 1950. No other sector of U.S. goods or services has experienced such an unbridled uptick. Today, healthcare costs are growing at a much faster rate than inflation, the economy and wages.

In a world of hard choices, medical costs are a source of stress and worry for nearly everyone. It has left government officials, insurance providers, corporate executives, small-business leaders, consumers and the medical community scrambling to find solutions.

Trying to provide employees with the health insurance benefits they have come to expect and rely upon while complying with all the requirements of the Affordable Care Act is no simple feat. With combined healthcare spending totaling $2.5 trillion—a little more than 17% of our nation’s gross domestic product—it’s not surprising that many companies have implemented employee wellness programs in an effort to contain costs.

Are Employers Really Ready For Work-Life Integration?

Posted by Charlla Feller-Davis

For decades, we’ve heard a lot about work-life balance. Employers eager to retain valuable talent were schooled about the many reasons why employees didn’t want to engage in daily rounds of “last soldier standing” to prove their commitment or value. Companies implemented a range of ideas—everything from flex schedules and lunchtime yoga to job sharing and bring your dog to work—in an effort to help employees de-stress and reclaim valuable time for themselves and their families. While these ideas are great, the benchmark has evolved.

Inspirus Delivers Recognition on the Fly

Posted by Charlla Feller-Davis

We live life on the go. We eat in our cars. We watch movies on our phones. We “talk” to our friends and family via posts on Facebook and Twitter. We answer work texts and emails well into the night between tucking in the kids and watching the latest episode of “Downton Abbey.” If something can’t be done in the blink of an eye or with a few keystrokes, we lose interest—fast. Even things that we really don’t mean to let slip through the cracks often do simply because of life’s hectic pace.
