The Whole-Person Workplace: Building Better Workplaces Through Work-Life, Wellness and Employee Support

A new book by Scott Behson, professor of management at Fairleigh Dickinson University (Authors Place Press, August 2021)

Supporting employees as whole people is the key to long-term, sustainable business success. Creating a Whole-Person Workplace helps you attract the best talent, who then want to stay, become increasingly engaged, and then treat your customers as whole people as well.

Whether you are a leader, supervisor, team leader or HR professional, The Whole-Person Workplace will help you develop ways to support your employees with the full range of their work-life challenges. Based on research, practice, and interviews with over four dozen subject matter experts (CEOs, CHROs, business owners, academics) conducted during the height of the Covid pandemic, this book 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 orientation, and workplace culture in new ways- and provide actionable advice for getting started custom-fit solutions for your business and employees. This book is also appropriate for a wide range of undergraduate and graduate classes in management, psychology and work-life.
