How to prioritize relationships and well-being at work

The Harvard Study of Adult Development began in 1938 and is still ongoing. It concluded that close relationships, more than money or fame, are critical to mental and physical health, happiness, and longevity. Considering that we spend a third to half of our waking hours in any given week at work, the workplace is a critical place for developing these meaningful connections that we all need to thrive. These social connections are not only good for us as individuals, they also have a positive impact on the bottom line.

On this special episode, our WorkWell producer from Rivet360, Jesse Betend, guest hosts. Jesse gets the inside scoop on the recently released book Work Better Together, from the authors Deloitte chief well-being officer Jen Fisher and Deloitte Global CEO Program Research Director Anh Phillips.

Not every relationship at work has to be your best friend. There are different types of relationships, and so we really advocate and promote understanding the different types of relationships and why they're valuable and why they matter.

– Jen Fisher, Deloitte chief well-being officer and author of Work Better Together.
