Why must there always be a problem? — George Costanza
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?
