The Whole Employee – How to Boost Employee Engagement and Prevent Burnout



Only 32 percent of American employees are engaged — and that number has barely budged since 2000. Luckily, companies are starting to treat their employees holistically and embrace concepts like whole person well-being and engagement— which is good for people and for business.

In this session, Dr. Laura Hamill — Chief People Officer at Limeade and Director of the Limeade Institute — will dig into the science behind employee engagement and walk you through what kind of cultures help you optimize for employee engagement and bolster against burnout. She will cover groundbreaking new research on topics like burnout, inclusion and how well-being and engagement are connected. With more than 20+ years helping companies leverage their important asset — their people — Laura will leave participants with tangible ways to evolve their most own employee engagement strategy so that both their employees and companies can thrive

In This Workshop, You Will Learn To:

  • Understand how well-being and engagement are connected — and what types of cultures can either help or hurt employee engagement
  • Dig into new research on employee burnout and learn tips for how to identify and prevent burnout in your high-performing employees
  • Participate in hands-on activities so you can apply learnings immediately to improve your own engagement strategies
