Supporting employees as whole people is the key to long-term, sustainable business success. Creating a Whole-Person Workplace helps you attract, retain and engage the best talent, who then bring their whole selves to their jobs- treating your customers as whole people as well.

Whether you are a CEO, organizational leader, small-business owner, supervisor or HR professional, The Whole-Person Workplace will help you craft a custom-fit solution that will help you unlock your workplace's potential by valuing your employees as whole people.

Starting with the lessons learned from how the best companies adapted to the Covid pandemic, The Whole-Person Workplace will help you develop ways to support your employees with the full range of their work-life challenges.

Specifically, Behson will help you think about flexibility, work-from home, parental leave, child-care, elder-care, wellness programs, educational benefits, vacation time, support for volunteerism, compensation & benefits, employee onboarding, and workplace culture in new ways. Behson provides vivid examples from a wide range of employers and provides actionable advice that will help you develop custom-fit solutions for your business and employees.

CEO's, HR executives, small business owners, and experts agree, The Whole-Person Workplace is "highly recommended for CEOs, HR professionals, and any manager looking to attract, engage and retain first-rate talent," "a friendly, smart, practical guide for leaders and employers of all sizes," and is "a must-read for today's business leader," that "provides a gold mine of actionable insights that any organization can implement and benefit from immediately."
