All proceeds from this on-demand webinar will be donated to hospitals in hot spot areas where there is the greatest need.


During this webinar we will hear from experts on the challenges AND the solutions to our current highly stressful environment. Take this information back to your colleagues and clients, or better yet, invite them to attend.

Let’s face it, it’s been a rough 14 months and we still have a long way to go. When you’re in a marathon, your mental health is as important as your physical health. Many of us are struggling to cope whether we are working at home or in working environments that require extraordinary measures to keep us safe. Some of us are experiencing long periods of social isolation, others are in back to back online meetings with no breaks, and those with young children or elderly parents are often experiencing intense family and caregiving pressures.

You will leave with a better understanding of how organizations and employees can not only cope but thrive in our challenging environment.
