It is one thing to know how to alter one’s behavior, but it is an entirely different matter to be motivated to do so. It is felt that employee motivation is the key factor in determining the success or failure of employee assistance programs and their ability to reduce health care costs and increase productivity. Health professionals have developed many behavioral techniques to help employees make lifestyle changes. Despite these methodologies, the majority of employees are unsuccessful in modifying their behavior long-term. In an entertaining and informative manner, this webinar will present the key behavior modification techniques, including the strategic use incentives, that can help initiate and maintain employee motivation to make positive lifestyle changes and become wiser health care consumers. It will also address the advantages and disadvantages of carrots versus sticks and intrinsic versus extrinsic rewards. The concepts from the field of Behavioral Economics will be presented.
