Upcoming Lunch & Learns

Liz Gronert | Wellness at Work: Planning for Success in Customized Employment

In the September Lunch & Learn, Liz Gronert will lead a discussion about how Kaposia, Inc has been infusing mental health and wellness concepts into the process of customized employment; three years after the start of the Covid pandemic upended our world, more than ever we are recognizing the importance of incorporating mental health and wellness into best practices on customized employment and, more universally, into all of our work environments. Embedding the tools of wellness provides a framework to support people as whole individuals and can assist them throughout the Discovery process. As people find work, these concepts can also be drawn into their experiences on-thejob, helping to promote long-term retention. Attendees will walk away with practical tools that can be applied to those you support, supervisor or work alongside of.
