The future of work is here, and BS (burnout & stress) is taking a devastating toll on workers, from the floor to the C-Suite. Even the World Health Organization now recognizes burnout as an occupational health issue. With labor shortages on the rise and resignations in freefall, employers are finally taking the employees’ mental health and emotional wellbeing seriously.
In this session, you will get help mitigating burnout, relieving chronic stress, and better connecting employees with their work. Hear from two employee experience thought leaders on how best to align company and employee expectations in a new world of work.
Jason Cochran is a business psychologist and the co-founder of technology companies iAspire and Dulead in Indianapolis - - both of which are focused on human development. Fascinated with the exploration of human potential, Jason has devoted his life to building scalable solutions that attract, develop, and retain talent. He also has hands-on experience working with organizations in education and business leading people, change, process improvement, and digital transformation in consulting roles.
Frustrated with the shortcomings of failed employee engagement initiatives, Jason created the 4 Principles of Connection™ model (connecting with self, others, role, and the organization) which creates purpose through meaningful employee experiences - addressing the innate needs for why people desire meaningful work in their lives that leads to fulfillment.
