Fostering Resilience: How to Help Employees Bounce Back in the Face of Life's Obstacles

Studies prove it and employers know it: Healthy employees are more productive employees. But when it comes to employee well-being, physical health-healthy weight, in-range biometrics, and low disease risk-is only part of the equation. Mental health,an employee's ability to manage stress, regulate emotions, and use positive coping mechanisms' matters too, in a capital B-I-G way.

Why? Resilient, mentally healthy employees are less likely to burn out, form unhealthy habits that lead to chronic disease development, and use harmful behaviors to cope with life's curveballs. For employers, that can mean fewer employee sick days taken, less turnover, and a reduction in claims and prescription drug costs.

The good news is, employers can help employees improve their mental health, become more resilient, and develop lifelong healthy habits. But, how? In this session:

  • Discuss the latest research on occupational stress and behavioral health in the workplace
  • Address and overcome unique challenges employers face surrounding employee mental health
  • Determine approaches to engage employees in their well-being and increase resilience long-term
