Expert Advice for Happier Holidays

Leadership's Role in Helping Combat End-of-Year Stress

Did you know? 40% of employees feel more stressed during the holidays than the rest of the year, with over 60% facing increased mental distractions from work.

While the holidays are commonly considered a time of celebration, the data tells a different story. With packed schedules, mounting family responsibilities, and financial pressures, many experience stress, anxiety, and burnout, with detrimental effects on exercise, eating habits, and substance use, impacting people both at work and in their personal lives.

This webinar will provide leaders with strategies to support employee wellbeing during this busy holiday season.

What to Expect:

1. Employee Productivity Insights: Employees are often distracted and disengaged, struggling with family caregiving obligations and family dynamics, leading to lower morale and dips in productivity. We’ll share insights to improve absenteeism and productivity.

2. Seasonal Stress Strategies: Employees experience added pressure due to family obligations, financial concerns, increased workload, burnout, decreased wellbeing, and more. Learn strategies to support increased seasonal stress.

3. Holiday Wellbeing Tools: Holidays often lead to challenges, including increased substance use, disrupted sleep, lack of exercise, and unhealthy eating. Get tools to help support healthier holiday habits.

Bonus: Wanting fewer distractions and more presence each day? Attendees will receive our e-book, “Breaking Free from Hustle Culture,” with expert tips on how to slow down and reclaim work-life balance.
