THRIVEx 2021: Connecting for Good 

April 15, 2021 / Corporate Wellness

Written By: Jordan Dunne

As we look ahead to a life without COVID-19, we’re also preparing to combat another rapidly emerging global health crisis—the diminishing health of our workforces due to chronic disease, health inequity, declining mental wellbeing, and low engagement.  

It’s time for a new, collective approach to health and wellbeing, one that enables every individual to thrive. Addressing these dueling pandemics requires smart, digital innovation that can meet the unique and ever-evolving needs of your dispersed workforce. In other words, we need to be Connecting for Good.   

Although we’re still unable to connect in person, we’re broadening the reach of our annual Thrive Summit with an immersive virtual experience, THRIVEx, this May 11-13, 2021.
