Session Title: The Corporate Wellness / Corporate Training Connection
Imagine that with a single action you could increase company profitability, reduce workplace stress, improve employee health, reduce sick days, increase productivity, reduce attrition, enhance management bench strength, increase employee motivation, facilitate work/life balance and simultaneously help your employees maximize the value, strength and joy of their family relationships. But wait, there’s more. Imagine that you most likely already have this panacea within your grasp. Preposterous you say!
This single action is making the decision to aggressively promote soft skills training, such as interpersonal skills, influence, problem solving, conflict resolution, negotiation, managing difficult conversations and other related topics within your organization. People are people no matter where they are. Soft skills in the workplace become life skills on the home front.
This talk discusses the rationale, logistics and the return on investment on integrating standard HR soft skill training into your overall wellness initiatives.
