The workplace has been through extreme changes the past 20 years. Today we are always connected and work longer hours. We are taking on more job responsibility with less job certainty. The workplace is the fifth leading cause of death in the US (120,000 people per year). But there is hope. Companies are embracing well-being. These companies understand that healthier employees mean lower healthcare costs and more productive work forces. There’s also been this incredible juxtaposition between the amazing things that new tech is doing for us as consumers vs. the disruption and uncertainty it’s creating in the workplace. This session will reveal one-of-a-kind research on these misalignments of the workplace and wellness initiatives along with strategies to improve it.
