 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm – Webinar: Building Psychologically Healthy Workplaces – A New Business Imperative presented by David W. Ballard, PsyD, MBA

Presentation Description: Successful businesses understand that employee well-being and organizational performance are inextricably linked. This session will explore APA’s Psychologically Healthy Workplace Model as a comprehensive framework for creating work environments where both employees and organizations can thrive. While it’s critical that workplace practices are designed well, based on good scientific evidence, and implemented effectively, equally important is how these programs are perceived by employees. Psychological factors such as autonomy, control and feeling valued also come into play, as well as issues of trust, fairness, and beliefs about the organization’s underlying motivations. This webinar will use data from the American Psychological Association’s recent surveys of the U.S. workforce to explore the impact of these factors on employee health and performance. Additional discussion of work stress, resilience, and emotional health will set the stage for a future where a comprehensive approach to employee well-being drives business results.

Participants Objectives:

  1. Describe the link between healthy workplace practices, employee well-being, and organizational performance.
  2. List the five types of workplace practices that foster a psychologically healthy workplace and examples of each.
  3. Discuss the key factors that can increase the likelihood of positive outcomes and strategies for addressing barriers to successful implementation
