We know that people with a strong life purpose have more satisfying, healthier, and even longer lives. But how do we maintain that sense of purpose throughout our lives? Join us for this PurposeCast, where Vic Strecher will talk with author and health and wellness movement-builder, Laura Putnam and her mother, Betsy Warriner, to explore the value of evolving our purpose as we change and grow.
Don't fall behind the curve.
Today, employers face the daunting task of adjusting return-to-office plans amid inconsistent COVID guidance from federal and local agencies as the Delta variant rips through communities like tornadoes. At the same time, vaccine hesitancy continues its stubborn and disruptive path, resignations are at an all-time high, and 2-in-3 companies report their wellbeing programs falling short. With top-performing employees and athletes alike putting their social and emotional wellbeing ahead of everything else, is your organization addressing these issues head-on?
Reality check: The answer isn’t simply remote work.
The future of work is one where a unified approach to wellbeing is paramount — one that addresses the root causes of authentic physical, social, and emotional wellbeing. Organizations falling behind now will not be able to catch up later.
What's New at Kumanu?
Fall is here and so is a new vaccine mandate. But some things stay the same: confusing guidance from the CDC, stop-start-stop return to work strategies, and an exhausted workforce is resigning at record numbers. Organizations committed to their people’s wellbeing today will weather these and future storms.
Purpose can seem elusive when we aren’t exactly where we want to be in life. We can get caught up chasing a series of goals that lead to a dead-end once accomplished, and we can burn out. Or we can become wrapped up in indecision and languish, settling for less than we want.
As the pandemic continues to disrupt and transform society, people are taking time to assess what matters most to them. Many are rethinking what work means to them, how they spend their time, and whether they are valued. It’s leading to a dramatic increase in transitions and turnover in the workplace.
Employees are leaving organizations at record numbers for a variety of reasons: shifting priorities, a desire for more flexibility, and a renewed commitment to their own wellbeing. Fortunately, one simple question can help organizations retain their people.
