7 Strategies to Improve Your Employees’ Health and Well-Being is a new Harvard Business Review article that details the results of new research that can also be applicable to the classroom.

Here are a few of their most relevant findings:

  • Give workers more control over how they do their work.

Here’s a video we did for Education Week on the value of autonomy in the classroom:


  • Provide employees with opportunities to identify and solve workplace problems.

I’ve previously written about how I develop student leadership teams in each of my classes to help problem-solve.


  • Take steps to foster a sense of social belonging among employees.

There are many ways to promote this in the classroom (see THE BEST RESOURCES FOR LEARNING HOW TO PROMOTE A SENSE OF “BELONGING” AT SCHOOL).
