Effective Small Business Wellness (workshop)

1,023

Published on

This workshop is designed to create collaborative problem solving for participants around a hypothetical scenario (See Part 4) to create a small business wellness initiative in the community.
Participants are assigned to tables for diversity of composition (employees, employers, providers, insurers, non-profits).
The room also has experts from the community available for consultation.
The goal is to identify key elements and strategy needed to launch an effective community-based wellness initiative that supports small businesses.
This full-day workshop was conducted at the Houston Wellness Association in January of 2010 with about 30 participants
This is PART 1 of the slide deck; PART 2 reviews the results of the grant-funded Small Business Wellness Initiative (www.sbwi.org)
Please contact OWLS at learn@organizationalwellness.com if you would like technical assistance or training on how to conduct this workshop and launch an SBWI in your community

  7. 7. What we mean by “SMALL” businesses<br />26%<br />87%<br />11%<br />46%<br />1%<br />24%<br />These data refer to the first quarter of 2004, downloaded from the BLS Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) website http://www.bls.gov/cew/ (accessed June 2005).<br />
  8. 8. Why Small Business? Top Ten Reasons<br />SBs significantly less likely to do Health Promotion* <br />SBs are 99% of all employers, w/60% of workforce<br />Have generated 60% to 80% of net new jobs<br />Employ majority of workers in a given community<br />Sickness absence impacts work (replacement issues)<br />1 person has more social modeling (CEO-ripple effect)<br />With less insurance, prevention more important<br />Many SBs have positive work culture to leverage<br />Entrepreneur/CEOs have humanitarian motives<br />Promising practices exist (CDC SWAT study)<br />* Healthy People 2010 targeted 75% businesses to receive wellness, but <50% do so and some indication this is declining<br />
  9. 9. More on the Insurance Problem<br />The principal barrier to small businesses in Texas offering employer-sponsored health insurance is affordability.<br />Recent US Census reports indicate that 1:3 Harris County non-elderly adults are uninsured; almost a quarter of the state’s population. <br />Two-thirds of uninsured adults are employed, with 44 percent working at firms that employ less than 25 workers. <br />Small business employers who depend on health insurance to attract and retain workers are finding it hard to find cost-effective insurance for their employees.<br />
