3) The Diamond Model of Integrated Health which identifies the 10 key areas necessary for well-being in mind, body, and spirit
In this era of global competition, organizations need every person functioning at his or her best. When team members are healthy and well, the result is reduced benefits costs, increased innovation, retention of top talent, and a winning culture where people are well, so they do well.
Workplace grief costs U.S. businesses billions of dollars a year in reduced productivity and increased errors and accidents, yet the word grief rarely shows up in reports. In The Hidden Annual Cost of Grief in America’s Workplace 2003 report, the keyword in the title of this report is the word "hidden." It is just that factor that has caused the problem to escalate to now unimaginable proportions and it is the essential reason that it is getting worse rather than better. In this presentation we will address the definition of grief, the grief/workplace connection, the cost of "presenteeism" to corporations and we will discover how managers and other employees can support coworkers who have experienced personal loss.
