Dear ${entity.firstName},

Work relationships and connections are vital to organizational wellness. Alan Kohll, President and Founder of TotalWellness, outlines why strong connections matter in his article,"5 Reasons Social Connections can Enhance your Employee Wellness Program." Some of the perks for organizations with strong social connections are increased happiness, reduced stress, and increased engagement and loyalty - all which can lead to better work performance.

At the Anderson Center, we value social connections, providing a variety of opportunities for cohorts to bond throughout the forum experience. For example, participants in the Executive Forum take part in a team bonding event and lend a helping hand through Feed My Starving Children.


In the past, teams have built bikes to donate while learning leadership skills along the way.


Not only is it important to foster social connections within the forum, sending a group of individuals from your organization to attend a forum together helps build internal trust. We know that employees in high-trust organizations are more productive, have more energy at work, and collaborate better with their colleagues than employees in low-trust companies. What does your company and team do to build employees' social connections?

You and your colleagues are welcome to join us at any of our upcoming forums. Please call me at 320.251.5420, or email me if you have any questions or would like to learn more about our upcoming events.

I look forward to hearing from you!


Emily Heying
