The Whole-Person Workplace Newsletter on LinkedIn
Every two weeks, I share information, advice, and inspiring stories to help you build better workplaces that work for everyone - by supporting employees with their work-life challenges - leading to sustainable success for employees and the bottom line. My newsletter focuses on a variety of issues including flex, leave, PTO, volunteerism, onboarding, wellness, work-life benefits and more. Sign up for the newsletter on Linkedin here.

Whole-Person Workplace values can help employees avoid chronic overwork - which is especially important in remote and hybrid workplaces - resulting in better workplaces that work for everyone.
Supporting employee time for life by providing and supporting effective PTO is a key for supporting employees and building a great culture.
When designed the right way, parental leave can become a core part of a Whole-Person Workplace culture – benefitting everyone, even those without children.
Everyone carries unseen emotional burdens in their "invisible backpacks". Employers can demonstrate their care for employees by thinking creatively about what they can to alleviate the weight their employees carry.
