Wellbeing in the Workplace: Why It’s More Than Self-Care

11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Our drive for wellbeing is universal. While the nonprofit sector supports the wellbeing of the communities it serves, what about the wellbeing of nonprofit leaders and staff?

How are we cultivating organizational cultures that increase wellbeing? Simply put, when workplaces support our wellbeing, we stay there. Our needs and experiences shape the health and hope of the organizations where we work. As part of Co.act’s Nonprofit Wellbeing Series, Tanya Tucker, Chief of National Engagement and Partnerships of the Full Frame Initiative, will share their wellbeing framework along with strategies and tools to support staff wellbeing.

During this session we will explore:

  • What we all need for increased wellbeing
  • How workplace culture, structures, policies and practices impact staff wellbeing
  • Concrete tools that can help you examine your own organization – how it already supports wellbeing and how it can further increase wellbeing for staff
