4 Ingredients to Keep Employees Happy

My daughter, Reese, and I love margherita pizza – it’s hands-down our favorite! Which means that whenever we go on vacation, we’re in search of the best. But it turns out that the best is right around the corner from our house. Lucky us!

Well-Being Plans Aren’t Enough!

Well-Being Plans Aren’t Enough!

In May, Aon, a multi-national financial services firm, announced Rachel Fellowes as Chief Well-Being Officer, a newly created role to address all aspects of the importance of well-being. While we should celebrate that organizations, such as Aon, recognize the importance of addressing #wellbeing in the workplace, it simply isn’t enough! In fact, I’ll argue that, for those organizations who believe this will solve the #burnout problem, they’re potentially causing more harm than good. Find out why well-being plans are a band-aid to the root causes of burnout, and why now is the time for change!

The 3 C’s of How the Office Can Make Work Life Easier

Is working in the office an antiquated concept? The challenge is that while many of the benefits of working from home are good for the individual, many of the benefits of working from the office are good for the organization.
