The Women in Business (WIB) Committee hosted its virtual Hacking Wellbeing: Pivoting norms to the new workplace reality, on May 19, 2021. As we are facing unprecedented challenges at the workplace, in the post-pandemic world, given the fast pace of transitions of technology, WIB Hacking Wellbeing focused on how we can thrive in the new normal, be able to adapt, and to develop new skill sets for growth and wellbeing.
Wellbeing at the workplace has to be re-invented, in the post pandemic world. The panel of experts explored the new skills that need to be adopted in order to turn the challenges into opportunities for growth. We will need to revisit our ability to adapt to fluid work contexts, extended working hours, building connection and communication virtually. Ultimately, we need to revisit our humanity and the ways in which we make sense of this world and create solutions. According to the research findings among young professionals, initiated by WIB and shared at the forum, one of the biggest aids to preserving wellbeing at the workplace, is the ability to sustain strong relationships and having a balanced life beyond work.
