The New World of Wellbeing

This Program, a refreshed version of our Wellbeing at Work Program, explores Josh Bersin’s framework for building and sustaining comprehensive wellbeing initiatives—and how to ensure they are successful. The New World of Wellbeing starts by highlighting the evolution of employee wellbeing and asks you to take a look at what is already happening at your organization. Then, it dives deeply into the key areas that make up a holistic wellbeing program: health and safety at work, mental resilience, physical health, financial fitness, and family and community. The Program features a collection of global stories that demonstrate how (and why) organizations across industries are shifting their thinking about the role they can and should play in employee wellbeing.

Field Manuals

The New World of Wellbeing Program is made up of 6 Field Manuals (our version of an online module). Each one contains a variety of types of content and social exercises culminating in a mini-project, reflection, or debate. Each Field Manual will take you between 30-45 minutes to complete but you can jump on and off at your own pace, as often as you’d like. The deeper learning happens in the discussions with your fellow learners so be sure to check in on the conversations regularly.

Wellbeing and the Healthy Organization

Wellbeing, when put into practice, is about more than just our physical or even mental wellness. It’s about cultivating an environment, a culture, and an organization that enables us to all be our healthiest selves, both in and outside the “office.” What is a healthy organization, and how do we know we’re a part of one? This Field Manual explores a more holistic approach to our individual and collective wellbeing.

A Safe and Healthy Workplace

A safe workplace is the foundation upon which healthy organizations are built. The 2020 pandemic made safety and health a top priority for many organizations, and it's essential that organizations carry this focus forward and continue to promote this fundamental aspect of wellbeing for their employees. This Field Manual focuses on what it takes to build a safe and healthy workplace.

Physical Health

When many of us think of wellbeing programs, we mostly think about perks aimed at keeping us physically well (and health insurance costs low). But to stay a truly healthy organization, we need to think creatively about how we can support healthy habits by designing physical wellbeing programs that people really want to use. This Field Manual explores how we can make healthy choices just a little bit easier for our people.

Mental Wellbeing

A healthy mind is foundational to our core abilities to function, and is, therefore, an essential component of a healthy organization. But mental wellness isn’t only about mitigating stress or addressing mental illness when it arises. When we can help our people build mental resilience, we can also boost their feelings of belonging, purpose, and happiness. This Field Manual digs into how we can best do that, including how to break through any stigma around mental health and deliver real results for our people and the organization at large.

Financial Fitness

There are few things in life that can drive us to stress and distraction more than financial anxiety. Yet it’s not a given that organizations provide benefits and guidance for employee financial health. This Field Manual discusses how looking for ways to comprehensively support employee financial health is good for everyone’s bottom line.

Social Health and Community Service

If we ever thought that there was a real boundary between our lives at work and outside of it, the pandemic has shown us otherwise. A strong wellbeing program takes this seriously and offers opportunities for employees to be the people they want to be no matter where they are. This Field Manual explores the relation between our lives both in and outside the “office” and how we can support connection.
