Abstract

Why are offices so often bad for our health? What’s the reason so many of us burn out? How can we become more healthy at work? These questions are fundamental to the future of offices and how organizations attract the best people to work in them. But they’re all too often ignored. Inspired by her own experience, researcher Elizabeth Nelson set out to find answers, and to offer a manifesto for a healthy office revolution. Written with author and mindfulness coach David Holzer, The Healthy Office Revolution begins with the gripping story of how Elizabeth’s dream job turned into a burnout nightmare. Elizabeth’s experience went onto inspire her groundbreaking research into how the office ecosystem impacts on an organization’s bottom line. When it comes to attracting and keeping the best people, offices are becoming more important than ever before. Telling her own compelling story, and offering a blueprint for change grounded in leading edge scientific research, Elizabeth shows how offices can be transformed for good.
