Improving Employee Well-Being in Your Organization

People are a business’s most valued asset, so it stands to reason that employee wellness is a fundamentally important metric for ensuring your company optimizes its talent. In fact, holistic wellness is one of the drivers that is reshaping the world of work—and it’s likely to take even greater organizational focus in the future. Today’s potential and current employees expect employers’ practices and policies to reflect a “whole person” perspective that includes diversity, equity and belonging, transparency, and a whole range of related issues.

In this course, you will learn to identify major shifts in how work is conducted—recognizing the impact of the pandemic, Generation Z, technology, and other global forces. Explore how to build a business case for a whole health initiative in your workplace, recognize potential obstacles and pitfalls, and discover the steps leaders must take in order to make such a program a reality—plus much more.
