How Investing in Employees’ Mental Health Unlocks Peak Performance

There is a powerful link between caring for employees and improving bottom-line results.

This closing keynote discussion from the 2022 Great Place To Work® For All™ Summit takes a deeper look at how taking care of people sits at the heart of every great workplace.

Accenture ranked #6 on this year’s Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® and appears on the Best Workplaces™ List in ten countries worldwide. Great Place To Work CEO, Michael C.

They also welcomed Michael Phelps — 23-time Olympic gold medalist, mental health advocate, and founder of the Michael Phelps Foundation — onstage for an inspiring and candid conversation.
