National Employee Benefits Day is a perfect time for benefit professionals to take a step back, look at the big picture, and take advantage of new resources for plan participants and beneficiaries. Benefits Day 2023 will be focusing on building a better work-life blend and what that means for different organizations.
Organizations have paid a lot of attention to the term work-life balance, particularly over the last three years as the line between work and life has blurred. But the term work-life blend may be a more accurate description of what workers want—reflecting their desire to improve multiple facets of their lives.
Let’s help employees and plan participants achieve this blend of goals, which include:
Download work-life blend by the numbers
Work-life blend can mean different things for different people, so talk to your plan participants to get a sense of what types of flexibility they may want so you can make meaningful changes.
Workers can be their best selves both at work and at home when benefit offerings support their mental, physical and financial health.
Employers influence happiness by making employees feel valued, recognized and included, ensuring that the workplace or jobsite culture is free of bullying and harassment while building and celebrating inclusivity.
Browse resources including blog posts, videos, podcasts, webcasts, toolkits and survey reports related to workplace mental health.
The future is upon us, and we’re navigating a new landscape of work. We’re suffering from social jetlag, and social well-being has declined. But work can be a terrific antidote—with shared experiences, common goals and united efforts providing meaning, esteem and energy. Dr. Tracy Brower will share new perspectives on belonging, community and the value of our relationships to build a better work-life blend, foster engagement and nurture a culture where people thrive. Join us to discuss all the ways community and belonging may be the best benefit offering of all.
