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.

- 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).
