The 2018 Resilience & Well-Being Conference

Developing Resilient Teams and Individuals in an Environment of Transformation
OCTOBER 25 - 26, 2018 | BOSTON MARRIOTT LONG WHARF | BOSTON, MA

October 25 - 26, 2018

Resilience benefits organizations, workforces, and customers. Resilience depends on the teams who continuously adapt to market and customer challenges while growing and sustaining operations, safeguarding people and assets, achieving brand equity, and thriving in their personal lives. More than an ability to achieve wellness and work-life balance, resilience is a set of positive and communicative skills and strategies that individuals and teams can activate by leveraging challenges, failures, and high-risk situations to be stronger in their organizational roles.

Resilient teams, such as teams in business, healthcare, public service, military services, and NGOs, need to develop and sustain resilience in an increasingly challenging and stressful work world. Workplace initiatives designed to build resilient teams in corporate settings are linked to significant returns on investment. Returns on investment are lower health care costs, higher productivity, lower absenteeism, and higher talent retention. Significantly, resilience can be learned and it involves communication around social capital values of trust and networks, leading to customer retention.

The Mental Workplace Health Seminar

Workplace mental health is one of the most important issues facing organizations.  Yet few employers are taking action.  Deloitte’s latest Human Capital Trends Report states:

As the line between work and life blurs, providing a robust suite of well-being programs focused on physical, mental, financial, and spiritual health is becoming a corporate responsibility and a strategy to drive employee productivity, engagement, and retention. While organizations are investing heavily in this area, our research reveals there is often a significant gap between what companies are offering and what employees value and expect.”

Deloitte found that while 60% of employees thought that mental health counselling was important only 21% provided it.

And The Partnership for Workplace Mental Health (a program of the American Psychiatric Association Foundation) claim that Mental illness and substance abuse annually cost employers an estimated $80 to $100 billion in indirect costs alone.

It impacts productivity, absenteeism, health care costs, employee engagement and corporate culture. This program will provide an essential forum and vital information on this increasingly critical subject.

Preliminary topics include:

  • Building a compelling Business case for employers to invest in mental health interventions
  • Addressing the issue of stigma around mental health
  • How to prevent harassment and bullying and so create a psychologically safe
  • Creating a wellness culture – that encourages respect for everyone
  • Using the insights from positive psychology to create a happier more engaged workforce
  • PTSD – It’s not just first responders
  • Grief at work
  • Social isolation – is it the new smoking?
  • What managers need to know about mental health
  • The role of mental health in fostering work life balance
  • Addiction in the workplace
  • Effective return to work strategies
