Increase your workplace resilience with a dedicated plan to support and enhance personal and team well-being.
Optimize your productivity and engagement at work with a mental and emotional tool kit to empower you to prioritize and support the well-being of self and others.
The consequences of stress are becoming increasingly apparent – not just to the individual, but to organizations as a whole. Stress causes 56 percent of workers to search for a new job, resulting in high turnover costs and productivity losses.1 As the interdependent relationship between personal well-being and team productivity is realized, businesses are beginning to prioritize wellness for the resilience and benefits it brings.
The Employee Wellness and Stress Management online short course focuses on the impact you can have when you take the steps to improve your own, as well as others', health. Developed by Dr. Grace Gengoux from the Stanford Center for Health Education, you’ll gain strategies to support the self-care of the teams you lead and colleagues you influence, while also focusing on your own well-being and personal resilience. With this dual approach, you’ll explore the reciprocal relationship between a ‘healthy you’ and ‘healthy teams’ as you unpack the science and practical examples of self-care. With an understanding of how essential physical health practices are for stress and energy management, you’ll gain the tools and techniques to encourage the well-being of self and others. The course uses self-reflection, goal setting, and global case studies to guide you as you define your wellness priorities, and build resilience for a fast-paced and complex working world.
