Worker Well-Being During COVID: Return to the Workplace

Prior to 2020, workplace well-being was already an area of growing interest for workers, employers, researchers, and public policymakers. The pandemic has served as a catalyst, sparking more urgent conversations and attention to worker well-being. In light of this renewed interest, the Lee Kum Sheung Center for Health and Happiness hosted a two-part series focused on recent learnings about workplace well-being, employee resilience, and the implications for our health outcomes.

This event was the second installment in the series. Speakers discussed the factors affecting the mental and physical health of employees starting to return to their workplaces.

Welcome remarks: Erin Driver-Linn, Dean for Education at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health

Moderator: John Quelch, Dean of Miami Business School

Speakers: Pamela Hymel (Chief Medical Officer, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts), Glorian Sorensen (Director of the Center for Work, Health and Wellbeing) and Vish Viswanath (Co-Director of the Lee Kum Sheung Center for Health and Happiness)
