The Ozaukee Nonprofit Center is hosting a “Lunch & Learn: Employee Assistance Programs & Managing Stress in the Workplace.”
“Join us Tuesday, August 22nd from noon to 1 p.m. for a Lunch & Learn: Employee Assistance Programs & Managing Stress in the Workplace with Suzanne Spaeth and Dawn Zak.
We know stress can come from almost every aspect of life. We have often been told that stress is bad and must be avoided. But, what if there’s more to it? This presentation will explore stress, the stress response, and the impact that stress can have on an individual and in a workplace. We will also discuss what an Employee Assistance Program is, how valuable it can be in addressing stress, and how to create a healthy, happy and productive workforce.
Join us during your lunch hour and bring any questions for Suzanne and Dawn!
