Employee Wellness Speaker Series

We are pleased to announce our fall employee wellness speaker series, “Psychological Safety – Pathway to Workplace Effectiveness.”

Dr Joel Gecht

Our featured speaker, Dr. Joel Gecht, is president and chief executive officer of IMPACT Solutions, a leading behavioral healthcare and people development consulting firm. IMPACT provides Employee Assistance (EAP) and Work/Life Services to employers across the nation and is the preferred EAP provider for the Inter-University Council of public universities in Ohio.  

As a psychologist, Dr. Gecht specializes in the design and implementation of customized behavioral healthcare and related services for colleges, universities, school systems, healthcare facilities and corporations. Gecht is highly knowledgeable on the importance of psychological safety in the home and workplace and is passionate to share that knowledge and provide tools to support individuals and workplaces to flourish. 

 

In this two-part series, we will explore the importance of psychological safety and how the presence or absence thereof affects personal wellbeing and workplace health. We will also explore how each one of us, regardless of our role, may support psychological safety at home, work or within our communities. In part two, we will discuss how and why psychological safety is critical to support thriving employees and productive teams.
