    August Breakfast Meeting

    Ali Payne of 

    Arthur Gallagher & Co. Presents...

    Wellness Is The Bottom Line



    More than 40% of employers offer wellness programs today and many are changing their approach to this benefit. The focus has visibly shifted from traditional wellness programs to a holistic wellbeing strategy that empowers individual employees to more actively control their total health. This presentation will review wellbeing trends and connect the dots for organizations to produce a happier and healthier environment.

    Ali has a sincere interest in meeting her clients’ strategic wellness needs through developing strong relationships between leadership and employees. She places a strong value on building best‐in‐class programs through strategic development for all sizes of business. Ali believes wellness strategy is the key driver behind compressing health care costs and creating a resilient workforce. As an Area Vice President, North Central and South Region Wellness Practice Leader, she has the opportunity to help companies develop health promotion and wellness practices for employers who might not have dedicated staff, and for clients who are looking to bring additional structure and analysis to existing health initiative programs.  

    Prior to joining Gallagher Benefit Services (GBS), Ali spent four years with Motorola, Inc. as a Senior Wellness Coordinator. Through this experience, she understands first‐hand the value and importance of integrating benefit design, health initiatives, and education in the workplace. Now she helps clients look at benefit plan design and population health in a whole new way. She helps her clients improve their employee retention, productivity and morale through successful health strategies and implementation of well-designed programs that best meet the needs of her clients. Additionally, she focuses on innovative methods to help lower company health care costs and improve overall corporate culture.   

    Ali is a graduate of the University of Iowa with a Bachelors of Science degree in Exercise Physiology and Health Promotion. She also holds a Master’s of Science degree in Human Resource Management and Health Promotion from Nebraska Methodist College in Omaha, Nebraska. She is a trained Intrinsic Coach from Totally Coached and a USATF Level Certified Running Coach. She is also an avid marathon runner, five time Ironman tri‐athlete and group fitness instructor. Her obvious enthusiasm and passion for health and wellness are contagious.
