Businesses operate at their best when their personnel function at their full potential. Strong scientific evidence supports the common-sense notion that psychological wellbeing reliably predicts job performance. Since people are an organization’s most valuable asset, creating a supportive culture and investing in employee health and wellbeing helps both employees and organizations thrive.
Dr. Persky’s wellbeing workshops are a win-win for individuals and businesses. Workshop participants take away practical skills and effective strategies to move from struggling or just functioning toward thriving. Participants can become better able to handle everyday challenges they face in the workplace, in personal life, and everywhere in between. When business leaders invest in employee health and wellbeing, employees feel valued and empowered, are more satisfied, and have the requisite skills to flourish and remain resilient even at times of stress.
Dr. Persky’s workshops are suitable for employees at various levels within the organization to promote positive engagement, purpose-driven meaningful life, and health consciousness; all of which are strongly related to improved wellbeing, increased productivity, reduced absenteeism, and a flourishing workplace.
According to recent studies, 43% of all adults suffer adverse health effects from stress. About 75% of all primary care office visits are for stress-related ailments and complaints. Stress can play a part in a vast number of health problems such as headaches, heart disease, high blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes, skin conditions, asthma, depression, and anxiety. The lifetime prevalence of an emotional disorder is often due to chronic and untreated stress reactions.
Dr. Persky offers consultation services to various health care professionals to assist them with teaching patients effective stress management and coping strategies, considering both individual and population-level approaches.
Given high levels of stress and burnout among healthcare professionals, Dr. Persky also offers consultation and programming to promote adaptive coping and wellbeing among healthcare professionals.
