Many people think that workplace trauma only occurs when there is a traumatic incident at work (death, violence, robbery, etc.). What most people don’t know is that it can also occur due to interpersonal office conflict, layoffs, or from a series of less dramatic stressors. As a leader in an organization, you can never promise your employees that they will never experience trauma in the workplace. You can, however, implement strategies to prevent and mitigate the effects that workplace trauma can have on employees. This webinar will enlighten you to the hidden costs of workplace trauma and will provide you with solutions to common workplace trauma concerns.

What will you learn?

  • • Gain an understanding of trauma through discovering the causes and effects of trauma on wellbeing.
  • • Understand how trauma affects an employee’s work performance.
  • • Identify how to prevent or address trauma from an individual and leadership standpoint.

Who should participate?
Any Human Resources Professional, leader, or supervisor responsible for managing people or teams. This is also helpful for any employees that are involved in their organization’s wellness program and any individual that is interested in learning about trauma and how to overcome its negative effects in the workplace.

The Health Summit is a partnership between the Business Group on Health and LiveWell Lancaster. It is designed to bring together the business community and other community partners to promote better health and wellbeing in our community. In 2017, our focus will be on stress and wellbeing – developing better ways to deal with stress to minimize its impact on our health and the health of our community. Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Robert Sapolsky, a noted science and nature writer, biologist and neuroscientist as well as stress expert. The goal of this event is to provide employers and community members with the tools they need to deal with stress in the lives of their employees and the community they are trying to serve. At this event, we will also be presenting the annual Well Workplace Awards in conjunction with LightenUp Lancaster. Awards will go to both large and small employers in our community who have focused on improving the health of their workforce as demonstrated through their completed CDC scorecard. We will also recognize two employers who have used innovation in the development of their programs and demonstrated the impact of their offerings.
