Building a Whole-Person Workplace: A Workplace That Works for Everyone

January 11, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Supporting employees as whole people is the key to long-term, sustainable business success. Creating a Whole-Person Workplace helps you attract the best talent, who want to stay, become increasingly engaged, and then treat those you serve as whole people as well.

Whether you are a leader, supervisor, business owner, or HR professional, The Whole-Person Workplace will help you develop ways to support your employees with the full range of their work-life challenges. Scott’s workshop will help you think about flexibility, work-from home, parental leave, child-care, elder-care, wellness programs, educational benefits, vacation time, support for volunteerism, compensation & benefits, employee orientation, and workplace culture in new ways- and provide actionable advice for getting started custom-fit solutions for your business and employees.

Especially in light of COVID-related changes to the workplace, managing your employees in a way that keeps them physically and psychologically safe while exploring creative solutions to how, where and when work is accomplished is the new imperative. In this workshop, I’ll help you explore ways to listen and respond to employee concerns as you develop your plans for your future workplace.

Scott Behson, PhD, is professor of management and Silberman Global Faculty Fellow at Fairleigh Dickinson University. He is a national expert in work and family issues and the author of three
