According to the 2020 Gartner Well-Being Benchmarking Survey, 70% of companies have introduced new well-being benefits or increased the amount of existing well-being benefits in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. To sustain momentum in developing a healthy workforce, organizations must continue to create an environment where employees value well-being. Dr. Richard Safeer, author of “A Cure for the Common Company,” joins the Talent Angle to make the case that organizations should go beyond well-being programs to create a culture of well-being. He offers practical guidance to help HR leaders establish the norms and environment that supports workforce health.

Dr. Richard Safeer, MD, currently serves as the Chief Medical Director of Employee Health and Well-Being for Johns Hopkins Medicine, where he leads the Healthy at Hopkins employee health and well-being strategy. Richard released “A Cure for the Common Company: A Well-Being Prescription for a Happier, Healthier, and More Resilient Workforce” in January 2023 with publisher Wiley. Previously, he was the medical director of preventive medicine for CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield in Baltimore, Maryland.

Jessica Knight is a vice president of research in the Gartner HR practice.
