Creating and Maintaining an Impactful Virtual Wellness Program

Thursday 2:55 – 3:55 PM

Session Description

With so many employees working remotely, the ways that we have normally offered wellness programs should shift.   Creating or maintaining a culture of wellness is still a priority although the ways that we engage our staff will likely have a different feel.  According to the American Psychiatric Association (APA), more than one-third of Americans (36%) say COVID-19 is having a serious impact on their mental health and most (59%) feel it is having a serious impact on their day to day lives.  Productivity will likely be affected due to family or friend health challenges, work-life balance, loneliness and other factors.  Create a plan to keep you employees engaged in your virtual, onsite or hybrid program now and in the future.
