How to Build a Culture that Supports Employee Well-being

A recent study by Deloitte revealed that 68% of employees and 81% of C-Suite leaders said improving their well-being is more important than advancing their careers. Despite this interest in well-being, company leaders are facing obstacles when it comes to advocating for wellness resources and implementing programs.

So how can you build a culture that supports both your employees’ and your own well-being? Join Bob Hamer, Director of ClassPass Corporate Wellness Program, and Namaste Reid, Bonusly Data Engineering Manager, as we explore the intersection of work and well-being and what you can do to help chart a path forward towards happier, healthier teams.

It's Not Just Productivity Anymore: How People Ops Experts Keep Distributed Teams Engaged

A PwC survey shows that 44% of employees who worked remotely in the past two years say it has become harder to connect with coworkers, while 42% say their company culture has improved in the same time period. What does this mean, and how are culture, connection, and engagement in the workplace connected?

Join Bonusly’s VP of People Operations, Vicki Yang, and Gable’s CEO, Liza Mash Levin, to discuss how People Ops managers can keep employees flexible, happy, and engaged in the distributed workplace.
