Lunch & Learn Series
'What's Good for People? Moving from Wellness to Well-Being'
Speaker: Betsy Leto, Knoll, Inc.
Due to looming talent shortages and increased healthcare costs, organizations across the globe are concentrating efforts to ensure the sustainability of their most important asset: their people. An organization's workplaces, work processes and work practices comprise an ecosystem that has the potential to enhance employee well-being and thus, organizational performance. Research shows that happy, healthy and engaged employees produce more and cost less. Attendees to this lunch and learn can expect to:
- Learn a brief history of wellness and the move to well-being in the workplace;
- Recognize the obvious and hidden costs of poor health and well-being;
- Discover workplace strategies that address employees' physical, emotional and social well-being; and
- Review examples of how local Seattle-area companies are addressing wellness and well-being in the workplace.
Our speaker, Betsy, works for Knoll, Inc. and uses a holistic approach based on Knoll workplace research and individual company culture to help organizations create environments where people aspire to do their best work. She has a background in interior design, is an accredited office ergonomics evaluator, and has worked in project management and workplace strategy for major organizations including Google, Tiffany & Co., Tableau and the London Stock Exchange Group
