Belong: Creating a Supportive Culture

Belong: Creating a Supportive Culture

in Blog , Events by UHA Health Insurance

Learn how emotional connectedness empowers teams and companies.

As the work world tries to return to normalcy after two years of COVID-19 uncertainty, leaders are looking for ways to re-engage their employees and rebuild the emotional ties that teamwork is built upon. Employees, meanwhile, are re-evaluating their relationship to work itself, seeking a more human experience.

Research has shown that a company’s culture can have an outsized effect on everything from innovation and profitability to hiring and worker retention. When team members trust each other, feel emotionally connected to a group, and share a common purpose, they collaborate wholeheartedly, unlocking the group’s full potential.

As more companies move towards a distributed workforce model with employees both in-office and remote, now is the time to build a supportive company culture that gives employees a sense of belonging and connects with them on a deeper level.

Join us as we kick off this special UHA Work Well Summit with a panel discussion featuring these local business leaders.

  • Trini Kaopuiki Clark – President and CEO, Make-A-Wish® Hawaii
  • Del Mochizuki – Director of Finance and Human Resources, UHA Health Insurance
  • Rebecca Sandvig – Organizational Effectiveness Coordinator, Hawaii Pacific Health

This discussion will be led by Gallup Strength Coach Raquel Kelly Hicks, Chief Human Resources Officer of Punahou School and Sr. Workplace Wellness Advisor Michael Story of UHA. The panelists will share how their companies built strong social support systems and instilled connectedness throughout their organization.

Following the panel discussion, our keynote presentation will feature Ryan Wolf, Wellbeing Lead from renowned consulting firm, Gallup. Gain knowledge and insight as Ryan talks about the emotional needs of employees, the science behind wellbeing and engagement, what’s next for companies, and tangible steps that can be taken now to create meaningful change.

Belong: Creating a Supportive Culture, is sponsored as a community service by UHA Health Insurance, in partnership with Hawaii Business Magazine and Hawaii Employers Council.
