Podcast: Tom Ciccotti On Employee Wellness Trends In 2017

Last month, Wellable released our blog on 6 Trends in Employee Wellness, which received a lot of attention from informed human resource and health plan professionals alike. The infographic also sparked interesting discussions on LinkedIn, with people from all professions weighing in on the state of the industry.

To continue the conversation, Wellable decided to invite Tom Ciccotti, the Co-Founder and EVP of Shortlister (and author of the survey) to be a part of Wellable's very first podcast. Tom brought with him his incredible insight and expertise, hoping to provide a better picture behind the numbers.
