How can you close those gaps and make your organization a place people want to stay? Start by re-centering your approach around the new wellbeing drivers: meaning, purpose, connection, authenticity, inclusion, and growth. Employees who report their employer supports their personal purpose are 3.5 times as likely to have a strong sense of dignity at work — and as a result, they are 2.3 times more likely to stick around / not leave for greener pastures.
The cracks were there; events of the past year widened them. Today, 2 in 3 employees struggle with anxiety, 1 in 3 face food insecurity, 4 in 10 lack purpose at work, 1 in 4 plan to leave. And 2 in 3 leaders report programs today fall short. Wellbeing is changing. For good. Join us to learn how to offer more of what employees expect today: authenticity, equity, and programs centered on social and emotional wellbeing.

Yet this voice can turn from companion to critic when it bombards us with incessant negative self-talk or “chatter”. Giving in to chatter can be debilitating for our moods, health, work, and relationships. But what if there was a way to control it?

Key to your wellbeing is resilience – the inner strength and ability to bounce back from adversity – often stronger than before. Those who lead resilient lives maintain a set of habits that help them meet life’s challenges, stay focused on what matters most, and enjoy more fulfilling and healthier lives. We often know what changes we seek but, what keeps us from achieving greater resilience and emotional wellbeing in our own lives?
