The Future of HR: Destressing your Workforce

You don’t need a PhD in psychology or neuroscience to know that an employee who is stressed out about finances, family, health, or other issues won’t be as productive or effective. But what can human resources leaders do to reduce stress when so much of it originates outside the workplace?

In this engaging session, Arianna Huffington and Jon Schlossberg will share their experiences and perspectives drawn from working with leading employers and some of the most forward-thinking CHROs in business. They will explore best practices to help employees reduce stress, build resilience and achieve healthier work-life integration. They will also share actionable steps leaders can take immediately to boost productivity and retention and create a more resilient workforce.
