Mental Health and The Future of Work:
A Mindful Approach
MindWell Founder and Chief Training Officer, Dr. Geoff Soloway, hosted a panel discussion on two growing priorities in today's workplace that both have a significant impact on the bottom line of business:
(1) Psychological Health and Safety and
(2) Developing the skills needed for the future of work
A growing body of evidence illustrates that developing the competency of mindfulness can show positive returns on both priorities and transform organizational culture. While growing in mainstream popularity, implementing mindfulness in the workplace requires a unique and systematic organizational development perspective for optimal success.
MindWell brought together an esteemed panel of guests to discuss.
The panel guests included:
Louise Taylor Green, Chief Executive Officer, Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA)
Micheal Pietrus Director, MHFA & Opening Minds, Mental Health Commission of Canada
Pam August, 'retired' Director Culture Activation at WestJet
Interested in learning how you could use the MindWell Challenge to help build
a mentally healthy organization that is ready to meet the rapidly changing demands of the workplace?
