Organizations are comprised of people, not machines. Human beings are complex, living systems who are not predictable and controllable like machines. Yet our workplaces have become increasingly dehumanized. Jeffrey Pfeffer, professor at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business states that job stress costs US employers more than $300 billion annually and may cause 120,000 excess deaths each year. His new book, Dying for a Paycheck, he argues that many common, “business-as-usual” practices are destroying people’s physical and emotional health and impeding company performance; consequently, “human sustainability should be as important as environmental stewardship.” The good news is, there is a revolution already underway where organizations are breaking the mold and finding success by putting people first. In fact, researcher, author and co-founder of Conscious Capitalism, Raj Sisodia, states that business can be a source of healing – making broken people whole again while being extraordinarily successful at the same time.
In this webinar, Dr. Rosie Ward and Dr. Jon Robison review the latest science on this changing business landscape. Incorporating story, professional experience and research, they provide a practical, science-based framework for re-humanizing the workplace where wellbeing is restored and organizational performance flourishes.
