About

Over the past two years, employers have had a wake up call about the importance of caring for the wellbeing of their people. As work has changed and evolved, we’ve learned, sometimes painfully, that our traditional wellness programs and approaches aren’t nearly enough. The Great Resignation is a wake up call.

While it’s easy to blame the pandemic or remote work, it’s time to face the reality that the way we work is part of the problem. During this virtual experience, we’ll explore why now is the time to be thinking strategically about designing work to amplify well-being. You’ll learn where the biggest challenges and opportunities lie and what you can do to begin making meaningful systemic change at your organization.

Executive Panel: Well-Being as a Strategic Imperative

The pandemic revealed vividly the importance of employee well-being to an organization’s success. A concept once thought as a “nice to have” employee perk has suddenly become a central focus in the executive boardroom. In this panel, we’ll learn from some leading organizations about how they are rethinking and redesigning the entire work experience to support and sustain employee well-being.
