The workplace is about to undergo massive disruption on the other side of the global pandemic. It is more critical right now that businesses find ways to keep their employees connected, to support the work of the business, but also to support the health and well-being of the employees. A reactionary approach to employee well-being is a thing of the past, and the need and opportunity is to proactively connect your employees so they can build the resilience that will support them through work challenges and challenges outside of work.
Here are a few ideas on how you can start building more connected workplaces starting today, but if you are interested in knowing more, reach out to us at The GenWell Project, and we would be happy to work with you to build healthier connection habits for you and everyone in your workplace.
Educating young people about the importance of social health to their overall well-being provides an early foundation for them to incorporate into their daily actions and activities. The distractions and pressures on young people today are far greater than they were just a few short decades a go, and the time is now for us all to play a greater role in helping them, and all of us, stay more socially connected.
We hope to be able to provide additional tools and information for all educators, so we can support you in your efforts to quickly engage and empower our youth to be more conscious and intentional about their social connections and their social health.
The GenWell Project wants to support educators in their efforts to raise awareness about this important health issue with our young. This downloadable outline will help connect the topic to the school curriculum around wellness, provide some facts and figures around social health and has a few suggestions for follow up activities that can be activated with a class.
We hope you find these tools helpful and we would be interested in any feedback on how we can improve them as we continue to build GenWell programming for our young students across Canada. Together we can make the world a happier and healthier place one face to face conversation at a time.
