You often hear the words wellness and well-being as synonymous, yet in reality they have different meaning, approaches and impacts on an organization and its employees. During this workshop, attendees will learn the importance of changing the mindset of their organization to positively impact both the organization and employees by focusing on a more holistic approach of well-being. This interactive workshop will stimulate discussion and thought on how to best align organizational programs, services and resources to maximize employee health and well-being. Participants will be provided with a workbook that they can used at their respective workplace to engage key stakeholders in the discussion, changing their mindset and focusing on well-being strategies and approaches that are unique to their organization.
The objectives of this presentation are to demonstrate the importance of focusing on a more holistic approach to well-being beyond well-being itself, stimulate discussion around the research and concepts critical to developing an overall approach, and to give participants hands-on experience with the concepts presented so that they can replicate at the workplace.
