In 2020, employers around the globe stepped up their well-being efforts, with benefits and resources to support employees and their family members. While these actions were necessary and long overdue, many of these offerings were about surviving, not thriving. As we move into 2021, how can we tap into the fundamentals that allow individuals to reach their human potential? The answer might lie outside of perks and benefits. The greatest impact on individual well-being is likely to be achieved when a holistic approach – to include the organization – is considered. Organizational well-being provides the scaffolding for people and organizations to adapt, grow, and flourish. Join us as we discuss how to go beyond traditional employee well-being programs to achieve a thriving organization overall.

SHRM and HRCI recertification information for this session is pending.

In lieu of a registration fee, we encourage attendees to make a donation to the SHRM Foundation in an amount of your choosing.
