Most employers understand that American employees are feeling stressed and reaching burnout . There is even a new medical diagnosis of "burnout" that was just announced by the World Health Organization in the International Classification of Diseases. There are a lot of statistics available that support the need for Workplace Wellness Programs.
If you read any newspaper or watch the local and National news stations, you know that workplace stress is real, and it is negatively affecting employees and their families. 78% of Americans describe their jobs as stressful, 40% of workers report their job is very or extremely stressful, 25% view their jobs as the number one stressor in their lives, and 75% of employees believe that workers have more on-the-job stress than a generation ago according to The American Institute of Stress.
Having happy employees is very important for more productivity environments and higher performances. Here are two statistics to support those facts.
"Organizations see 12% more productivityfrom happy workers."
— Department of Economics at the University of Warwick
"Organizations see 20% higher performancewhen their employees are happy."
— The Enthusiastic Employee: How Companies Profit by Giving Workers What They Want.
Organizations that prioritize workplace well-being out-perform their competitors, and thriving workplaces are more profitable and creative, so this is an essential must-attend event for those companies who want to succeed!
In this workshop, we will be utilizing the Appreciative Inquiry approach which focuses on strengths instead of weaknesses.
Appreciative Inquiry (AI) was developed as a concept by Dr. David Cooperrider and Dr. Suresh Srivastva in the 1980s at Case Western Reserve University. Their work uses a whole system approach to positive change and focuses on what is working in a system as opposed to what needs to be fixed. AI focuses on possibilities, not problems, in a realistic collaborative style that creates sustainable solutions. Appreciative Inquiry training has been used successfully in many global corporations, small companies, nonprofits, governments, cities, schools, churches, etc. It is an innovative, flexible approach designed to unleash the best of what a system has to offer.
