Start Date:1/21/2021

Employees are experiencing stress and burnout unlike ever before. In a recent global survey, 71% of HR professionals said that 2020 has been the most stressful year of their careers, and employees reported feelings of underappreciation and a lack of recognition (30%), a lack of support (26%) and insufficient connection to the company (23%) as potential reasons for leaving their jobs.

Does your organization recognize the stress employees are under, and do you have a plan to address it?

Join Alex Powell and Lori Alford to learn how improving connection and recognition can minimize stress and burnout for your senior living workforce.

In this session, you’ll learn:
    • What defines stress and burnout and the effects they each have on productivity and motivation.
    • Tactical ways to create connections that create a positive impact on engagement.
    • How to develop a strategy for communication and recognition that makes employees feel more appreciated.
    • How senior living organizations work with Reward Gateway to connect, recognize and support employees during times of exceptional stress
