Employees are looking for those great places to work and don’t want to put up with nonsense any longer.  Companies need to pay competitive salaries, of course.

4. Growing Inclusive Leaders

The final workplace wellness trend we hope to see is a focus on inclusive leadership. We think that, this year, the focus will move past the basics of D, E, & I and move towards creating a strong inclusive leadership team.  Of course, if you don’t have the basics, every company should start there. But, to elevate a companies’ efforts, leaders
