How Changing Culture in the Workplace Helps Reduce Stress and Anxiety: 2021 Governor’s Conference on Volunteerism

Presented by Jed Fiato, FEMA Regional Preparedness Liaison, Fors Marsh Group

Session Description:

There is always a lot of buzz around changing institutions. Well, what if we could change our institutions by charging our workplaces and our environments with positive energy? What if we were intentional with how we acted and how we behaved towards one another inside of the workplace? I propose that the consequences could be huge and that we could actually bring about the positive change we seek in the world. By starting just in the places we interact with people, we could have a momentous impact on the world. There are some pretty simple and practical ways of being intentional and mindful inside the workplace that I would love to share with folks.

Session Goals:

  • Learn the causes of workplace stress & anxiety and how it impacts overall job performance
  • Assess workplace culture to determine necessary changes in order to foster creativity, innovation, and productivity
  • Incorporate a realistic work-life balance to become more effective at work
