How employee wellness varies across generations: The rush to meet worker needs

Establishing a strong employee wellness program is critical for employers, yet with more workplaces featuring multi-generational workers, reaching balance remains a challenge.

It is no secret that Gen Zers and young Millennials, who as […]

Why 2022 will demand deeper HR action on Wellbeing

Why 2022 will demand deeper HR action on Wellbeing

If HR leaders had to choose one word to define their focus over the last year, “wellbeing” likely would rank near the top. And, according to several experts, that trend is poised to continue well into 2022. Source: HR Executive.com As news of the new Omicron COVID-19 variant threatens to upend back-to-the-office plans and prolong a pandemic many had hoped would have been behind us by now, employees will continue to need support, says Christine Deputy, chief people officer at Pinterest. “We thought, coming into 2021, that we’d be in a year of recovery and recuperation and getting past what happened in 2020–but we’re seeing now this will be at least a two-year […]

The talent shortage challenge is a complex issue with no easy answers.

7 ways to make yourself a happier person every day

In our daily routines fueled by drive and ambition, sometimes we find ourselves at a crossroads: Do we push harder toward achievement, or do we take a step back and instead seek quiet happiness? Some would argue that happiness is found in the achievement. If that’s true, then I ask for someone to show me. Achievement is fleeting. Source   What matters more is the feeling underneath it The challenge is how to navigate both worlds. Is it possible to both be in a position of power and be humble? Can you be wealthy outside and in? How does one navigate the grueling road of business or high-speed innovation, while […]

Why you should resist the urge to multitask during Zoom meetings

It’s so tempting, but it can wreak havoc on your productivity. Here’s how to find your focus instead. And remember…it’s a two way relationship between the presenter and the attendee.
