May 20, 2022 9:00 PM CET BUY TICKETS

When you first embarked on your career journey did you ever think you would experience workplace trauma. 2020 was a difficult year for everyone and 2021 hasn’t been any different. The coronavirus pandemic brought pain and confusion. The unforeseen workplace modifications and the new standards of The Future of Work in 2021 has been stressful or traumatic for everyone to some degree.

Companies are finally waking up and recognizing the impact of workplace induced trauma on their talent. Emboldened employees are sounding the alarm on the effects of stress and trauma on their physical health, mental health, and job performance. Everyone has a choice in how they respond to stress and trauma, but in order to see and exercise that choice, we need to create space to understand and address workplace-induced trauma. Trauma can be a difficult topic to read about and discuss. However, companies can be proactive in addressing trauma before it reaches a crisis point. It is important to have a common understanding of it in order to prevent, mitigate, and avoid retriggering trauma. The window of opportunity to explore healing and combat traumatic experiences is NOW. Become a Trauma-Informed organization.
