Supporting employees as whole people is the key to long-term, sustainable business success. Creating a Whole-Person Workplace helps you attract the best talent, who then want to stay, become increasingly engaged, and treat your customers as whole people as well.
Whether you are a leader, supervisor, business owner or HR professional, The Whole-Person Workplace will help you develop ways to support your employees with the full range of their work-life challenges. This book will help you think about flexibility, work-from-home, parental leave, child-care, elder-care, wellness programs, educational benefits, vacation time, support for volunteerism, compensation & benefits, employee orientation, and workplace culture in new ways- and provide actionable advice for developing custom-fit solutions for your business and employees.
