Competencies: Business (Behavioral), Interpersonal (Behavioral) | Intended Audience: Mid-Level, Senior-Level
Workplace Application:
The role HR plays in identifying shifting employee behavioral patterns and communicating trauma support resources . 

How well do you know your people and when they show up differently? Are you able to recognize when their patterns of behavior shift and how that can disrupt your organizational performance? How well are you and your team communicating your organization’s commitment to mental health? And do your wellness practices incorporate how trauma in the workplace could be impacting employee experiences?

Today’s employees expect to be seen and treated as whole people and compartmentalizing thoughts and feelings about their life changes is unlikely to occur during the workday. Failure to initiate helpful dialogue and offer organizational support is something that can impact their relationships with stakeholders, work productivity and overall well-being. During this conversation, you will better learn how to recognize the trauma your people may be facing in their personal or professional lives and how to leverage your organization’s employee resources to help them through it.

Learning Objectives:

• How to identify shifting employee behavioral patterns,
• How to assess the current workforce and well-being strategy against the needs of your staff,
• How to effectively communicate trauma support resources for your workforce,
• How to foster a culture of wellness and well-being,
