SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--More employers – public and private – are seeing employee health as their greatest underutilized productive asset. To help manage this “asset” wisely, the Institute for Health and Productivity Management (IHPM) in partnership with GlobalMed introduces its online Training and Certification Academy to create a new corps of business-oriented health professionals.
“Health and Productivity Management is an emerging discipline to be learned and practiced by corporate and health service professionals,” said Sean Sullivan, J.D., co-founder and CEO of IHPM. “The intent is to help them become a new kind of human assets manager, focused on business outcomes like productivity.”
IHPM has conducted on-site training and certification of professionals in Brazil and China. Now that same valuable training is available online through a series professionally-produced by GlobalMed, addressing Conceptual Framework and HPM Value Chain; Introduction to HPM; Measurement; Case Studies; and Behavioral Health and Well-being.
“We are involved because we believe the training presented in this series is valuable to managers charged with making sure the productivity of employees doesn’t suffer because of health problems,” said Joel E. Barthelemy, founder and CEO of GlobalMed, the worldwide leader in telemedicine delivery systems.
Target audiences for the Academy include all categories of health and human resource professionals in the corporate arena. The training can be completed at an individual’s own pace. Modules consist of connected sections with a short quiz at the end of each. Trainees advance to the next section or module after passing each quiz.
Cost for Academy Training & Certification is $950 for IHPM members and $1250 for non-members. Completion leads to a Professional Certification in the Discipline of Health and Productivity Management. Additional trainings will include Telemedicine, Sleep Health & Wellness, Self-Care and Employee Assistance Plans.
