June is Employee Wellbeing Month! At a time when more than half of Americans say the pandemic has negatively affected their mental health, employees need (and increasingly demand) additional support from their employers.
To truly build a more resilient workforce in 2021 and beyond, employers should prioritize wellbeing, which is the state of being comfortable, healthy and happy. Wellbeing can be achieved when our mind, body and sense of purpose lead us to feel positive about ourselves and satisfied with our lives both personally and professionally.

When employees feel cared for, organizations benefit from improved productivity and increased engagement, which creates better business performance.
