Beyond Quiet Quitting: How to foster a workplace culture that prioritizes mental health in 2023

“Okay boomer,” are the words you might hear if you ask someone under 30 to put in long work hours or take on more extra responsibilities on the job.

Let Your Mission Be Your Guide

A solid mission and vision statement is a staple for most, if not all, organizations. And, if asked, I would assume we’d agree that mission statements are an important tool for organizations to look toward while conducting their business. As our Our CEO, Karen Larsen, says, the Steinberg Institute’s mission, “…clearly states our purpose and gives our team a north star, guiding us in our work.” And it’s true! Our mission guides us as we make decisions about how we will invest our time and resources daily and annually.

Two mass shootings, first in Monterrey Park on lunar new year’s eve and then in Half Moon Bay have left people searching for answers. Traumatic events like these are all too common nationwide, and coping with them can be very difficult, especially for those impacted directly. At the same time, Asians are the racial group in America least likely to access care than any other group.
