The Next Human Frontier - Total Wellness from Life to Work

Workplace Wellness

As work and life continue to blend and issues like mental health and wellness continue to be elevated as important conversations, those of us in the people operations business ought to be thinking about what this means for the world of work. The nature of how we work and more importantly what our employees want from their employers is becoming less of a smoke signal and more like a blaring alarm. Are we equipped to answer the call? If our employees are healthy, well, and fulfilled we get people who are showing up to work ready to the best they can on behalf of the company. Our biggest challenge is assessing the internal climate for the necessary changes and figuring out what the best modalities are for assisting our employees in a myriad of ways over the life cycle of their careers and lives.
