Wellbeing 3.0 Webinar - Getting Unstuck: Harness Purpose, Cultivate Connection and Transcend Incentives

“Engage their heads with data and engage their hearts by creating meaningful wellbeing experiences for all levels of leaders.”
- Dr. Jessica Grossmeier

Dr. Jessica Grossmeier, author of Reimagining Workplace Well-Being, joined Eric Zimmerman for our most recent Wellbeing 3.0 conversation.  They discussed ways to get unstuck in the areas of engagement, incentives, and implementing a more holistic wellbeing approach.

Here are 5 key learnings from their conversation:

  • It’s not them, it’s us. What employees say they need from employers to thrive has changed. It’s time for decision makers, consultants and providers to catch up.
  • Engagement isn’t what happens on the portal. Participation is a start, but true engagement in health, work and life matter more.
  • It’s time to transcend incentives. Incentives can help get people to show up, but change won’t stick without harnessing intrinsic motivation.
  • Leaders set the tone, and seed the culture. Leaders who model purposeful behavior, empower others and set the tone for wellbeing.
  • Build on your success, but go deeper. You don’t need to start over, but do need to evolve. Start with people’s “why.”  Healthy habits will follow.

Watch the episode to hear the data and learn strategies that are driving a more connected, engaged, and healthy workforce wellbeing approach.
