  • Event Date:
  • Event Time: Noon Central

Hospitals and health care organizations can be high stress environments for its employees. Emotional health issues can have a significant impact on the way employees think, feel, and behave while also affecting productivity, communication, safety, and overall performance.

In this webinar, learn how promoting good emotional health can play an important role in improving workplace performance within health care organizations. Given the significant association of emotional health with physical health risks, our speaker shares how integrated wellness programs can enable hospitals to address the gaps in care while improving the health of their population. When employees’ emotional health concerns are treated in these types of wellness programs, companies reduce job-related accidents, sick days, employee turnover, and employee productivity, while amplifying improved health risk migration.

What You Will Learn:

  • Discover the direct and indirect impact of emotional health on health care costs
  • Promote good emotional health in the workplace and include purposeful emotional health in wellness offerings
  • Understand the impact on physical health by listening to a case study on mitigating emotional health risk
