Recent studies indicate astoundingly high levels of burnout within the American workforce and particularly within healthcare. We know from engagement surveys that burnout is not limited to physicians, all team members can be impacted. To fully understand how we can care for those that are constantly providing care to others, it is necessary to start at the grassroots level. Equip teams with tools to create positive change and provide support for a sustainable, healthy and safe work environment. Blending findings from behavioral economics, change management theory, organizational psychology and happiness research, in collaboration with groups such as Stanford University, Human Resources, Food Services, Occupational Health and Primary Care, Stanford Health Care developed team-based interventions that gave employees autonomy and control over when, where and how wellness-infused interventions were offered. This multidisciplinary approach allows teams to address workplace issues as they see fit, boosting psychological safety and enhancing team care.
