LivWell, dacadoo representative for Brazil, took place on the seminar.
Luis Figueiredo, LivWell Director, was interviewed and addressed the importance of companies more and more investing on Health Promotion instead of dealing with Sicknesses.
Health plans are becoming too expensive for companies, although it is the most valuable benefit for employees. He said, “healthier people are, happier they will be, more productive and companies save money from that”.
