Workplace Culture is how employees’ hearts & stomachs feel about Monday morning… on Sunday night.

So much of what determines an employee’s performance in their work boils down to workplace culture. Whether or not your employee feels seen and heard within the company, and if they feel connected to their team’s ideals and shared goals. As we adjust to the new normal in our professional lives, more and more employers are realizing the importance of maintaining a positive workplace culture to prevent burnout, boost productivity, and increase employee retention. We know that investing in mental health wellness and boosting employee self-care strategies prevent long term negative impact in workplaces.

But what does it mean to have a positive workplace culture? As I see it, the foundation of a positive workplace culture is a trauma-informed workplace. 

A trauma-informed workplace recognizes employees as people who struggle, who experience burnout, who may carry trauma—and promotes wellness and support for their employees. An excellent way to provide this kind of support is through creative journaling. With journaling, employees are given the tools to process their experiences and cultivate their growth, improving their ability to manage potential stress in their work.

Creative Journaling for Employee Mental Wellness & Resilience teaches employees how to use journaling as a tool to reduce stress, encourage team cohesion, and offer practical application and solutions.
