Fostering Well-Being in the Workplace (Online)

Course Code: CEPS 1140EO
Creating greater well-being in the workplace takes a lot more than just flex hours, an espresso machine and a pool table. It takes a deep understanding of what employees truly want and need to feel alive and fulfilled. And that’s exactly what you’ll get in this workshop with industry psychologist Julie Hanck. Based on the Science of Happiness course offered by Dr. Laurie Santos at Yale University, this invaluable session is rooted in science-based techniques that can help you create and experience a greater sense of well-being at work. And that’s something we can all feel good about.
