Many organizations have perks and programs designed to enhance employee wellness, but these efforts often miss the mark in actually boosting worker well-being. So, what can organizations do to make meaningful progress in creating a happier, healthier, and more resilient workforce? The answer lies in culture.

On this episode, Deloitte Chief Well-being Officer Jen Fisher talks with Dr. Richard Safeer, Chief Medical Director of employee health and well-being for Johns Hopkins Medicine and author of “A Cure for the Common Company: A Well-Being Prescription for a Happier, Healthier, and More Resilient Workforce” about the importance of truly building well-being into the core of an organization through peer support, leader engagement, setting norms, shared values, and more.

It's a matter of integrating well-being into our work processes and our day-to-day, hour-to-hour, minute-to-minute interactions and approach to the workday. Well-being is not just about an individual endeavor, but an organizational, intentional effort toward building a well-being culture, where well-being is part of the organization's fabric.
