Technology Wellness in the Nonprofit Workplace

Many nonprofit professionals work on teams that rely on the use of the email, Internet, and their mobile phones to get their important work done. Unfortunately, it easy to develop unhealthy habits that lead to distraction and a loss of productivity. To thrive in an era of collaborative overload, nonprofit teams need to embrace technology wellness in their workplaces.

It isn’t about NOT using technology; it is about effective use of technology to support your team’s work. Based on The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact without Burnout, the session helps participants reflect on their team’s current use of technology and identify opportunities to improve productivity, focus, and results.

The highly interactive session will share examples and insights from nonprofits that have successfully addressed technology wellness to create a culture of well-being in the workplace which contributes to high performance. This includes a look at technology policies, taking breaks, use of standing desks, walking meetings, health apps that can support workplace wellness initiatives, and much more.

Session participants will brainstorm in small groups about how they can encourage good practices in their offices.
