In our next session:

  • "Supporting Employee Well-being: What Can Your Do As a Manager?"
    Organizations are investing in benefits to improve employee well-being, and taking on initiatives to foster a culture of wellbeing in the workplace. However, many employees still feel that their job is an obstacle to their wellbeing rather than a help. What can you do as a manager to shift that perception? Kenny Zuckerberg, Vice President of Learning & Organizational Excellence at ComPsych, will describe ways in which a manager can promote employee well-being, become an advocate for wellbeing resources and more!

In our most recent session:

  • "Keys to 2024 Well-Being Success", Shannon Reaska, Director of Account Services at ComPsych, discussed key trends and observations from 2023, the year’s most effective tools and services, and the things to focus on in 2024 to ensure a successful well-being program.
