Let’s get to what matters for employee well-being
In the aftermath of a global pandemic, employees are burned out, unfulfilled, and disconnected. As employers step up their efforts to address workplace culture and double down on employee well-being in the fight for top talent, the time is now to invest in an approach that is grounded in science, steeped in thousands of years of ancient wisdom practices, and tested in leading organizations. This book integrates proven best practices from workplace well-being research with decades of management science research on workplace spirituality.
