The human resources frontier: enhancing wellness and productivity via better brain health

Employee-benefitsEmployers turning to ‘brain health’ tools to reduce stress, increase productivity (HR.BLR.com):
“Brain health is not just about disease. It’s not just about depression or anxiety,” says Fernandez…Instead, this new phenomenon focuses on making sure employees can adapt and thrive in their jobs, helping them make good decisions, and making them feel as productive as possible, he says…For example, a stressed employee might make bad decisions. But if that employee is able to gauge his or her stress level and then modify it to reach an optimal mental state, then he or she is likely to think creatively and make better decisions, he says. Brain health is being used as part of employers’ overall wellness programs—in an effort to reach as many employees as possible—but also solely in leadership development programs at some companies, Fernandez reports.”
