Gain insight on how leaders can prioritize worker well-being and how everyone can be mindful of their own mental health at work
A staggering 84% of people report that their current work contributes to mental health challenges. This problem, made more challenging by the COVID-19 pandemic, motivated the U.S. Surgeon General to declare workplace well-being as a top priority.
In conjunction with Mental Health Awareness Month and based on the U.S. Surgeon General’s Framework for Workplace Mental Health & Well-Being, the five-part Workplace Well-Being Webinar Series provides evidence-based tools for flourishing at work and promoting employee well-being. These tools are based on groundbreaking research done by our very own Tippie faculty.
You’re welcome to attend as many webinars as you would like. All webinars are recorded and shared via the college’s YouTube page. Tippie's Alumni Webinars are free and open to anyone who registers.
