Weekly Wrap-up: Wellbeing Resources

June 8, 2020

In a webinar I recently listened to, the presenter talked about how one of the most important things an employer can do right now is to build trust. Trust is imperative, they stated, because as employees return to the workplace, they will need to trust that their employer has done all that they can to keep them safe.

I was reminded of that takeaway today when reading this quote from Brene Brown:  “Trust is earned in the smallest of moments. It is earned not through heroic deeds, or even highly visible actions, but through paying attention, listening, and gestures of genuine care and connection.”

I think this speaks to the importance of the amazing work so many of you have been doing these past two months to care for your teams and to support their Wellbeing. That work is more important than ever right now.   

Have a safe and healthy week.
