Wellness in the workplace is more important today than ever before. To assist local companies and organizations in keeping employees and staff happy, safe and well, Coachella Valley’s HARC (Health Assessment and Research for Communities) is hosting their annual Workplace Wellness Symposium on June 24, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. via Zoom. 

In 2016, HARC inaugurated their annual Workplace Wellness Awards to recognize exemplary organizations in the Coachella Valley that prioritize employee health and wellness and encourage others to do the same. Since the pandemic, HARC has shifted their awards ceremony to a virtual symposium which aims to inform employers, managers and management teams how to cope with the changes that the pandemic has brought to the workplace.

Research shows that having a healthy workplace benefits both employees and the employer. Such benefits include increased productivity, decreased absenteeism, enhanced morale, decreased health care costs, reduced stress levels, improved long-term retention and overall improved employee happiness and health. 

This year’s Workplace Wellness Symposium topic is, “We’re all in this together – Navigating Through Changing Times.” Recognizing that workplaces have significantly changed in the past two years and acknowledging “The Great Resignation,” this year’s event will address topics such as diversity and inclusion in today’s workplace, strategies to release stress in the workplace, managing boundaries at work, and more. 

Management teams from all types of organizations – non-profits, for-profit, corporations, schools, governmental agencies – are encouraged to join this two-hour interactive symposium with inspirational speakers, prizes for participation and networking opportunities.

The event is free to attend, however, registration is required and the first 50 people to register will receive a bag with gifts from HARC and their sponsors. For registration to the event and additional information visit www.HARCdata.org/award.
