Work. Play. Give. — Creating a Thriving Workplace

As a leader, you want to help create a productive, caring, interesting, fun workplace. You want coworkers to be excited to come to work and nurture an environment where everyone one can do their best. In a thriving workplace staff are encouraged to continually question if best practices can become even better. Colleagues look with a fresh perspective to see what shifts can create a new outcome.

Abundant research informs us that a thriving workplace depends on high-achieving employees’ sense of fulfillment and happiness on the job. This can be accomplished in a number of ways. We’ll explore 3 pillars of creating fulfillment at work that leads to high productivity, satisfaction, and longevity.

The “Work. Play. Give.” philosophy defines how to create a highly engaged workforce in three ways — even at the same time! “Work” encourages you to create an environment where people can contribute their best ideas without fear of being chastised. “Play” brings new points of view to create breakthrough solutions. “Give” encompasses how giving provides an additional sense of purpose.

In addition to hearing how individuals and corporations have incorporated the Work. Play. Give. philosophy, you’ll hear how Rebecca brings “Work. Play. Give.” into her life through her work with corporations and non-profits, in the US and abroad. She’ll share how her work with the non-profit Together We Can Change the World has not only helped the impoverished women and children they support, but how it’s charged her perspective and life.

Learn how to apply the three pillars for a richer life. You’ll get ideas on how to adopt this philosophy to create a more effective workplace. You’ll think differently about how you can integrate all three every day in your work and life.

Participants will understand how to:

  • create an environment where people can utilize their highest skills and talents
  • encourage playfulness for connecting with colleagues, as well as improving creativity and innovation.
  • foster giving not only funds, but one’s spirit, kindness and heart, in the workplace and in the community.
