Ann Arbor, MI— October 26-28, 2011, Pete Thomas, the Season 2 At-Home Winner of NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” will return for a second year in a row to address the Corporate Wellness Conference and World Medical Tourism Conference/Global Healthcare Congress taking place at the Renaissance Marriot Schaumberg Hotel & Convention Center in Chicago, Illinois. Thomas will lead a 6 am Corporate Boot Camp and address both audiences in a crossover session entitled “Success Strategies for Global Corporate Wellness Programs.”
“I’m really looking forward to this year’s conference,” Thomas states. “Corporate wellness is a growing global industry—and there are many corporate wellness strategies that transcend borders,” In his session, Thomas will highlight the essential components of successful wellness programs and lead a panel discussion of multi-national corporate industry leaders—including Hewlett-Packard and Procter and Gamble, who will highlight their successes in wellness across borders.
“We’re here to learn from one another and glean ideas that we can take back and use in our respective corporations.” Thomas goes on to state that while the industry is seeing results with corporate wellness efforts, there’s yet more to do. “Research shows that worksite wellness programs are actually among the most effective types of intervention for weight-loss. Yet in America, we still have an obesity epidemic. What does that tell us? That tells us we’ve got a lot more work to do. But we must first know what works.”
“What works” is what Thomas will be discussing in his session on opening day. Thomas travels the country working with corporations to increase participation in their wellness programs, and it’s this knowledge —plus that of the panelists— that Thomas plans to distill at the conference. “I want to be able to help communicate what’s working so that we can actually reach our company’s health and wellness goals. Healthy employees make for more productive employees. And productive employees boost our bottom line,” Thomas concludes.
