The new world of work is being built against the global backdrop of COVID and other health crises and social issues impacting employers, employees, health plans, and their members. The lines between life at work and life at home have blurred, forcing organizational leaders to recognize the vital role they play in creating healthier, happier employees and human beings, in all areas of life. Employee Wellbeing Month 2021 comes at a critical time and highlights how diverse, inclusive, wellbeing-minded organizations lead to more productive and engaged workforces, create mental health awareness, and drive meaningful change for true health equity—wherever employees are.
As we learn more about the impact of social determinants of health on our workforce and as the employer-employee relationship continues to evolve, so must the scope of employee wellbeing. The most successful organizations focus not only on physical wellbeing—they also focus on emotional health to create a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment that supports each employee’s need to develop healthy habits when it comes to sleep, stress management, mindfulness, work-life balance, condition management, financial health, and more.
This annual toolkit includes dozens of resources such as a calendar, flyers, tips, activity ideas, and more to help you support your workforce’s health and happiness throughout the month of June and beyond.
