Guest:

Leigh Stringer, workplace design specialist and bestselling author of The Healthy Workplace: How to Improve the Well-Being of Your Employees — and Boost Your Company’s Bottom Line

In a recent UnitedHealthcare study, 70% of employees expressed interest in taking proactive steps to improve their health. As we settle into 2018, we look at the new trends and best practices your organization can incorporate into health and workplace ergonomics initiatives throughout the year. In this episode of HR Break Room®, hosts Caleb Masters and Braeden Fair talk with Stringer about:

  • the rising investment in employee mental/emotional wellness programs
  • how these programs resonate with the growing millennial workforce
  • the role physical space and best ergonomics practices play in nurturing a healthy and productive work environment
  • how sustaining a solid wellness program starts with changing an organization’s culture
