Event Description:
We have been challenged. Novel obstacles require maneuvering as organizations that are resilient and ready for the future. Currently, the work-world faces extraordinary challenges caused by COVID-19- including social isolation, hybrid work situations, and how to think about employee health and wellbeing in situational upheaval. 

Truths have emerged about the future of work and wellbeing, truths that lead to healthy organizations and leadership behaviors. 

"During times of crisis, individual purpose can be a guidepost that helps people face up to uncertainties and navigate them better, and thus mitigate the damaging effects of long-term stress. People who have a strong sense of purpose tend to be more resilient and exhibit better recovery from negative events. Indeed, our research conducted during the pandemic finds that when comparing people who say they are 'living their purpose' at work with those who say they aren't, the former report levels of wellbeing that are five times higher than the latter. Moreover, those in the former group are four times more likely to report higher engagement levels."- McKinsey Quarterly. 8-18-2020.
