    Overview

    For the first time since WW II, the current lack of available workforce in the US is the single greatest threat to the growth and expansion for American businesses. It is a mathematical certainty that there will not be enough available talent to fill all of the needs of employers over the next decade. There will be winners and losers in this "War for Talent." This talk will focus on proven systematic strategies that companies can use to make sure they are well staffed with amazing people that will allow their organization to grow and thrive

    Overview

    Musculoskeletal disorders are one of the largest health plan costs for employers. Effectively navigating the health care system at the time of need is the key factor in managing this issue. Physical Therapy as the entry point to care is the best kept secret in the conservative management of musculoskeletal disorders. This presentation teaches participants the positive impact of using physical therapy as a front line provider for musculoskeletal issues. Participants learn how they can assist employees in efficiently navigating the health care system; resulting in optimal outcomes, improved healthcare access, increased employee productivity and decreased health plan costs.

    Learning Objective 1:

    Understand why musculoskeletal care is so expensive to their health plan

    Learning Objective 2:

    Attendees will understand the how to design an employee benefit that will not only lower their total cost of health care, but also provide their employees and dependents with higher productivity and satisfaction as well

    Learning Objective 3:

    Redefine how employees purchase musculoskeletal care through insurance plan design and employee engagement strategies

    1. Identify the impact of musculoskeletal care on health plan costs.

    2. Recognize how typical utilization of healthcare drives high costs and limited outcomes.

    3. Describe how Physical Therapy can improve navigation, cost and outcomes.

    4. Discuss strategies to improve healthcare navigation with musculoskeletal conditions within the current resources of the participant's wellness program.

    Overview

    We have two main issues to face as we move into 2021.  The first one is how to keep and maintain civility through constructive conflict.  There seems to be more and more workplace conflict where people are taking extreme positions and more importantly, they're digging in and are unwilling to compromise.  I believe this directly has come out of the political climate that has occurred over the last two years.  I also believe we will continue to face issues with staffing, therefore, I believe it will be important to focus on productivity and motivational management.  Being able to focus our energy on motivating our top performers to continue to perform at an outstanding level and not leave for a better option, will be vitally important.
