Kristi Hoffman of PBS’ Business 360° travels to Ann Arbor, Michigan to visit with Kumanu Founder and Chief Purpose Officer Dr. Vic Strecher to explore the intersection of behavior change and technology — and finds out why purpose is the key to keeping us, as busy humans, healthier and productive.
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.
