Virtual Event: Employee Experience & Wellness for the Public Sector USA 2021

Improving Employee Engagement & Well-Being Across the Workplace

Friday, February 5, 2021
(Start: 9:00AM PT / 12:00PM ET)

Agenda Overview:

Employees spend more waking hours at work than any other place (even if it is in a remote working environment); so, it seems logical that employers would want to develop a workplace that encourages and promotes healthy behaviors.

As we face a global health pandemic, government organizations and hospitals, and healthcare companies have also seen some of the largest numbers of employees struggling with substance abuse and mental health issues than other industries. Effective and successful workplace wellness programs can help improve an organization’s culture and change lives. Public sector organizations can also benefit from lower turnover rates, fewer absences, increases in productivity, and higher job satisfaction.

Public Sector organizations have always known that it is important to create a culture focused on employee experience and over recent years have also recognized the importance of employee wellness. As governments continue to progress in their response to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become paramount to focus on their employees’ well-being.

During the course of this half-day virtual event, you will hear how various local, state, and federal governments have created employee wellness programs that have assisted in improving overall employee engagement; even during a global crisis not seen in this lifetime, which has pushed multiple employees into remote working environments.
