SmartCEO and Cigna gathered Philadelphia-area executives to shed light on how individual health ownership continues to be a challenge for employers focused on driving optimal health benefit costs and workforce productivity. This discussion focuses on new customer engagement strategies and ‘health accountability’ plans enabled through incentives, new outreach modalities (health coaching, digital, etc.), and the changing healthcare delivery system. SmartCEO and Cigna asked CEOs to speak about their organizations and their roles as health advocates for employees, why it is important for organizations to create a culture of wellness to improve the health of their employees, lower healthcare costs and improve productivity.
