Are you working to Burnout or working to Wellness? How to reduce stress, anxiety and Burnout in Workforce Development Organizations!

This is a webinar! 

This is a very difficult time to be in the workforce development field. Stress, anxiety and burnout are proven killers, and they will shorten your life span. The lingering impact of Covid and the high numbers of unemployed people especially those with multiple and severe barriers to employment. In many places there is a lack of jobs especially those that pay a living wage. Our field has seen its funding cut dramatically leading to lower staff pay and less services for job seekers. We are experiencing the highest levels of stress, anxiety and burnout in the history of the workforce development field. You can see this in the high levels of turnover in workforce development. Stress, anxiety and burnout not only impacts our ability to deliver the best services, but it also takes its toll on our mental, physical and emotional health. In addition, it is all too easy for the pressures of work to spill over into our lives outside of work and have a negative impact on our families and friends.

This situation calls for powerful intervention strategies that can help us get on track and work to wellness instead of working to burnout. Generic strategies about how to approach these problems are often not relevant or effective for people in workforce development. You need approaches that are specifically geared toward staff and management that work in workforce development. That is what this webinar is all about.

You will learn the differences between stress, anxiety and burnout and how they develop in workforce organizations. Discover what needs to be done both on the individual and organizational levels to create proactive wellness strategies that work for people in our field. Get ideas about how management and staff can work together to create a healthier workplace that can overcome the challenges we face on a daily and long term basis as people in the workforce development field. This staff and management partnership can provide an ongoing antidote to the ever increasing negative forces that come into our work.

Learn about the best wellness practices used in the private sector and other workforce organizations around the country so you can put them into your work. Find out how to create a personal workforce wellness plan that will help you do your job in a different way so you can do it at the highest levels for the longest time. No matter what your job is and no matter what kind of program you have, if workforce development is a focus of your work this webinar will help you work to wellness and not work to burnout!

Help us cultivate a community we all enjoy by reviewing and following the Code of Conduct.  

Our Purpose  

Thank you for being a part of the online CDPC social learning community. To ensure that all members have the best possible experience, we have a few ground rules that we ask everyone to adhere to. This code of conduct applies equally to every person in the community and is intended to foster an online space that is inclusive, safe, and welcoming to all. 

Community Rules 

Be welcoming 

We strive to be a community that welcomes and supports people of all backgrounds and identities. We aim to create and facilitate a community that promotes excellence and innovation in career and workforce development. Please extend respect to all members; we all come from different backgrounds and levels of knowledge and there is no such thing as a stupid question. 

Be respectful 

We won’t all agree all the time, but when we disagree don’t let those disagreements turn into personal attacks. A community where people feel uncomfortable or threatened will not be a productive one. Instead, when having discussions in the online community, create productive conversations around the content being presented, not the person behind the content. Any post that is determined to be “hate speech” towards any individual or group will be deleted, and the user account may be locked until an investigation regarding the post has been concluded. The user may be given a written warning or removed from the CPDC community platform depending on the findings of the investigation.  

Hate Speech could include and is not limited to:  

  • Violent threats or language directed against another person 
  • Discriminatory jokes, language, or materials 
  • Defamatory or abusive language or materials 
  • Profane or illegal materials 
  • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior 

A good rule of thumb is to never post anything that you wouldn’t be comfortable with the world seeing or that you wouldn’t want anyone knowing came from you. We ask that you keep in mind the focus of this community, which is building excellence and innovation in career and workforce development for all individuals.  

Be considerate of the purpose of the community 

This community will be focused on building excellence and discussing innovation in the career and workforce development field. The goal of this community is to communicate goals, challenges, constructive feedback, and questions in relation to career and workforce development. The community should be a place for continued learning and development as well as a place to discuss the future of our field (solicitation without written consent by the Project or Advisory team, is strictly prohibited). Any post that is determined to be soliciting any individual or group will be deleted, and the user account may be locked until an investigation regarding the post has been concluded. The user may be given a written warning or removed from the CPDC community platform depending on the findings of the investigation. 

Post your discussions or documents in the most appropriate group or topic 

Make reasonable efforts to ensure that posts and materials are allocated to the appropriate group or topic. This will prevent cluttering the community and make it easier for everyone to find the information that they are seeking. Individuals who do this repeatedly will be contacted by one of the group admins and asked to follow these guidelines.  

Privacy and Release of Information  

CDPC-CEDC will not release your information to any third-party agencies.  

Group Admins 

There are four group admins who are available to you. Below are their names and their spoken language. 

Heather Powell | Anglophone 

Gabrielle St-Cyr | Francophone/Anglophone 

Florence Desrochers | Francophone/Anglophone

Muriel Andoblé-Yao | Francophone

Thank you and welcome to the CDPC Community!
