The pandemic has given us insights into employee wellness and how mental and emotional health in the workplace should be defined. Last year, a survey found that 76% of workers felt that companies should be doing more to protect their mental health. So how can leaders take steps to support mental health and wellness in the workplace? This week, Kathleen is joined by Laura Putnam, the founder & CEO of Motion Infusion, a San Francisco-based well-being training and consulting firm that helps leaders build healthier, happier, and more innovative organizations. In part one, Laura shares her journey to becoming a leader in the health and well-being space, and she breaks down the keys to building a workplace wellness program that works.
