WellBeing at the workplace: The urgency and opportunity

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Stress and burnout of healthcare providers have become a major healthcare issue that has implications for not only workforce projections, but the cost and quality of patient care and the lives of healthcare providers and their families. Increasingly, organizations are understanding the importance of creating cultures of well-being that both mitigate burnout and create conditions that support well-being and human flourishing. Factors contributing to well-being include health, purpose, relationships, community, safety and security, and the environment. The Wellbeing Leadership Program is a creative blend of programming offered through the Bakken Center that includes 3 day-long retreats, independent study, and online learning. The program emphasizes personal and leadership practices that are simple, concrete, powerful, and inspiring. The series is based on the premise that leaders are needed at every level of the organization who have the knowledge, skills, and capacity to advance well-being.
