Combat Long Term Pandemic Effects to Sustain a Healthy and Satisfied Campus Workforce
We are on the verge of a professional crisis in higher education as faculty, staff and administrations struggle to maintain their own well-being amongst greater expectations and higher demand workloads. The stress and uncertainty from the past year and a half have taken their toll on everyone, and although people remain hopeful, the near future regarding the pandemic remains unclear. Campus leaders and managers need to develop strategies and techniques to combat this wave and sustain their workforce.
Our expert presenter discusses the current college work environment — exacerbated by the pandemic — and its serious implications for faculty and staff members’ mental and physical health. Learn about innovative strategies to help yourself and others to recognize and reduce stress, anxiety and burnout. Our expert presenter also addresses management and leadership issues and offers solutions from both an individual and systemic perspective to diminish the impacts of burnout on your faculty and staff.
Learn the necessary coping strategies to mitigate any existing chronic stress or anxiety you are experiencing, embrace self-care and avoid burnout. Develop strategies that are easily modified and incorporate practical interventions that foster grit so that you can balance your professional work and personal lives in a more productive and less stressful manner.
As a result of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Identify factors – both individual and systemic – that contribute to faculty and staff’s physical and emotional exhaustion – implement effective strategies to set expectations and establish a healthier environment.
- Provide ongoing training, assessment and debriefing for your faculty and staff to ensure institutional norms and expectations are being met – ensure your faculty and staff have the appropriate tools they need to do their work, feel supported and avoid burnout.
- Encourage faculty and staff to take control of their own health and wellness before they become disengaged or experience negative health implications – normalize self-care and support so that they can continue to teach, support and engage with students in a health way.
- Develop or enhance current intervention programs and awareness trainings so you can maintain or expand scope or gain additional resources to support faculty and staff in need – improve personal/professional experience, enhance connections with students and fellow colleagues, and increase productivity and overall satisfaction as everyone begins to regroup and recharge.
- Embrace the long-term impact that COVID-19 will have on college campuses – implement an integrated campus-wide strategy to support health, wellness and well-being for your frontline faculty and staff to reduce burnout and avoid adding to the “the great resignation”.
