Managing Workplace Stress for Better Talent Retention, Acquisition, and Productivity w/ Steven Farber

In episode 22, we talk with Steven Farber about why stress—and employee turnover—are higher than ever, and what the connection is between the two.
Episode 22
Feeling a sense of belonging at work means being able to be your full, authentic self. It doesn’t mean compartmentalizing your personal problems at work, or pretending stress doesn’t exist within the four walls of the office. Yet, when stress—personal and work-related—starts to get in the way of employees’ productivity and ability to focus, there are negative business implications—implications organizations need to be aware of, get ahead of, and address with empathy. We sat down with Steven Farber, Financial Wellbeing Benefits Carrier at LegalShield Business Solutions, to hear about how companies can utilize low-cost or no-cost benefits solutions to reduce workplace stress and improve employee retention, acquisition, and productivity. In this episode, we also talked about:
  • Why stress—and employee turnover—are higher than ever, and what the connection is between the two.
  • Whether stress is created in the workplace, or brought in from outside. (The answer might surprise you!)
  • Five powerful ways to get back to a stress-free, productive culture where employees want to work.

I spent much of my working life in a whirlwind of uncertainty wondering when I would find a career that would make me happy. After spending 23 years trying to find that 'dream career' I came to a sobering conclusion. I realized that I wasn't looking for a career, but for a purpose and that I would never be happy until I figured out what that purpose was. After a long hard road of trial and error, I concluded that my purpose, the very activity that brought me happiness was when I could bring that happiness to others first. Removing the vast amounts of uncertainty this life can bring for others and replacing it with true peace of mind, gave me my much sought-after peace of mind.
