Employee well-being is no longer an employee benefit. Rather, well-being now is an employer’s opportunity to support employees in all aspects of their personal and work lives.

Since the pandemic, employees are demanding well-being initiatives, and those organizations who lag behind are facing retention issues and promoting the great resignation. But, these programs are not without risk. as evidenced by the $1.29 million dollar settlement reached by Yale University last month. (There were union implications for this case. So, it would be easy to weave in a discussion on Amazon).
