Meeting with Mr. Michał Boni, MEP - eHealth Policy and Regulatory Developments (December 1, 2017)

eHealth is perceived as a symbol of the democratization of healthcare and opportunity to meet the challenges caused by an aging society, chronic diseases, and dramatically rising costs of healthcare. In practice, a lack of harmonization of eHealth implementation within the EU and unsatisfactory access to cross-border healthcare are the main challenges in eHealth development. On Dec. 1, AmCham EU Affairs Committee organized a meeting entitled eHealth Policy and Regulatory Developments - state of play and chances for business. Our guest was Mr. Michał Boni, Member of the EU Parliament, Solidarity Movement Leader, Poland’s former Minister of Labor and Digitalization. We discussed how to transform eHealth into a political and economic advantage including eHealth solutions contributing to cost-efficient healthcare systems, Code of Conduct on the privacy of mHealth apps and EU guidelines on assessment of the reliability of mHealth apps.

Employee Experience - Why It Matters (November 15, 2017)

If you take care of your employees, they will take care of your business. Behind the common aspiration to promote employee happiness and personal development lies a true economic justification: a happy employee costs less and brings more value to the company; on the contrary, when employee’s expectations are not met through the employee experience, employee engagement suffers and leads to a direct negative cost to the business.

 On November 15, AmCham Employee & Labor Relations Committee organized meeting entitled  Employee Experience - why it matters. Our speakers were Ms. Alexandra Kazimierski, Executive Director; Ms. Izabela Bartnicka, Senior Consultant of AmCham member, Hudson and Marta Dobrzańska, who presented the results of Hudson’s survey on Polish employees experience, performed this year. We discussed how to use recommendations from the survey to positively impact employee engagement, retention, and motivation.
