Why should employee wellbeing matter to employers? The impact of wellbeing extends far beyond how people feel -- it affects the number of sick days employees take and their job performance, odds of burnout and likelihood of leaving their organization. Leaders who wish to attract and retain star talent should prioritize wellbeing and take steps to create a thriving culture.
Dan Witters, research director of the Gallup National Health and Well-Being Index, joins the podcast to talk about Gallup’s decades of research on wellbeing. Later, Alden Lai, assistant professor at the NYU School of Global Public Health and executive adviser to the Wellbeing for Planet Earth Foundation, discusses what employers stand to gain when they make wellbeing a central priority.
The full transcript of the conversation, including time stamps, will be available shortly. Full audio is posted above.
