How to Build a Culture that Supports Well-Being in Times of Change

Wellness and human resource professionals have been through a rapid series of learning, growing, and adapting in the last few months due to several rapidly changing situations.  This critical time is shining a light on corporate cultures – for better or for worse.  The type of care — or in some cases, the lack thereof — that companies are showing to their employees during this time will impact not only how they cope during this crisis, but what they are left with on the other side of it.

Through all of this, what remains true is that HR and wellness professionals are on the front lines of caring for employees, and your organization needs to step into that role and provide the guidance and assurance your employees are looking for. Join Lindsay Lagreid, Sr. Advisor, Limeade Institute, as she explores the importance of building and maintaining an intentional culture, especially in times of change.
