Denise Bober to Share Human Energy Management Strategies


Denise Bober, Vice President of Human Resources at The Breakers Palm Beach, will present at the 8th Annual Employer Healthcare & Benefits Congress in Washington D.C. from September 25th – 28th. The EHBC brings together professionals from the human resource, health care, benefits and wellness industries together to network and learn the latest information and best practices in the industry.

Denise first joined The Breakers in 1988 as the administrative assistant to the director of human resources, in awe of the director position and captivated by the critical role HR plays in fostering a dynamic work environment and how it impacts so many lives.  Only a year later, Bober was promoted to employment manager, then employment & staff relations manager, and then to HR manager, with the additional disciplines like staff relations integrated into her scope of responsibilities. In 1997, Bober became The Breakers’ director of human resources, where she dramatically expanded the resort’s HR initiatives; developing staff relations programs, recognition programs, service awards, and specialized training and professional development programs. She ultimately transformed HR into a front-of-organization division.

As vice president of human resources at The Breakers Palm Beach, Bober is responsible for managing a broad range of HR functions:  recruitment and employment, staff relations, training and development, wellness, safety, community service, the administration of human resources policies and programs, as well as financial management including annual operating and capital budgets.  The successful launch of Corporate Athlete is credited to Bober’s determination.  This intensive, three-day program provides participants with the tools to manage their energy, not just time; to get fully engaged in all areas of their professional and personal lives; and to fulfill their mission of personal change.

She was appointed to the Board of Trustees for Palm Healthcare Foundation in January 2014 and currently serves as Chair, Member at Large.  From 2007 – 2013 she served on the Board of the Palm Beach Chamber of Commerce, and during that time completed a two year term as the Chamber’s president.  She is a member of the Human Resources Association of Palm Beach County, the Executive Women’s Association of the Palm Beaches, a former member of the International Association of Women Chefs & Restaurateurs, and a past board member of Goodwill Industries.

Denise’s topic will be titled “A New Era of Well-being ~ Human Energy Management” and will discuss how The Breaks Palm Beach transformed into a healthier company via human energy management. Attendees will learn how to create a culture of well-being, overcome health pitfalls, determine the analytic standard for their company and how to manage energy through nutrition and movement. Denise will be joined by The Breakers of Palm Beach’s Director of Team Member Development, Pat Ciavola.

“I am very excited to be sharing The Breaker Palm Beach’s success in human energy management with the EHBC,” said Bober. “The audience the EHBC brings in is the ideal target for our message; they are the wellness decision makers. By sharing what we have done with a receptive audience, we can help spread these ideas across the country and make more businesses a healthy and happy place to work.”
