Back to the Future: What worked this year? How do we make next year better?

With the holidays on the horizon, a time of reflection is fast upon us. What worked well? How do we get better? Much of the content we created this month and have planned for next month focuses on answering these critical questions. Dr. Carr is back with another edition of Dr. Carr’s Corner that will help leaders be more aware of their team member’s emotional wellbeing states. As usual, he also had some tips and guidance to help you be a better leader. We have a couple of Livestream Events coming up that will be helpful for organizations to learn and share ideas of how we can improve our wellbeing strategies moving forward. Greg Braylock Jr, Vice President and Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer at ProMedica was this month’s PurposeCast guest, and he shared some wonderful insights to help us all ensure we’re creating an inclusive culture where belonging and openness are centered. 

Let’s get ready for 2022 starting today, with our October Newsletter.

Top Consultants Talk About the Way Forward in Wellbeing (Part 2)

What are your barriers to change in wellbeing design?

We polled participants at our April and early May “Learn from the Leaders” sessions.

Here’s what we found:

Fully 89% of you are “recalculating your route to better wellbeing.”

More than half see “competing priorities,” as their biggest barrier, closely followed by budget, leadership alignment, and lack of a clear roadmap to get there.

Our next webinar in this series will focus on these challenges. Join wellbeing innovation leaders at Willis Towers Watson: John Bremen, Amy DeVylder Levanat, and Wendy Poirier in discussion with our own Eric Zimmerman.
