A healthier, happier workforce is good for people, good for the bottom line and essential for building a winning team. So, given all of these benefits, what can we do to maximize the impact of our wellness programs? Activate leaders, specifically managers. This alone can make the difference between workplace wellness that works versus programs that merely “check the boxes.”

In this fast-paced webinar, Laura Putnam will discuss the critical role that every manager plays in embedding wellness into the fabric of the business. She will review case studies from organizations such as Schindler Elevator Corp., where managers became the drivers in engaging larger cross-sections of the workforce, as well as explore the specific steps you can take to activate the managers in your organization to spark a “middle-out” movement of well-being!

Following this webinar, you will be able to:

  • List reasons from the literature about why managers are the primary contributors toward employee engagement in well-being.
  • Distinguish between a manager acting as a “multiplier” and a “gatekeeper”.
  • Name three strategies that can be employed in your organization to activate managers in promoting well-being for their team members.
  • Understand how to start a “middle-out movement!”
