Fostering a work culture where employees want to share their full scope of talents, experience and sense of community is critical in the future of business. Belonging is proven to reduce the impact of mental illness, which costs the US economy over $1 trillion per year in lost productivity. In this session, we’ll discuss the business case and practical how-to steps to build a work environment that attracts and retains top talent.
Erin Fisk is the founder of Fisk Solutions, a company that believes in “mental health everywhere.” With over 1 in 5 people diagnosed with a mental illness each year and even more without treatment, Erin knows that businesses, schools, restaurants, religious groups and even your local post office is full of people who need support. Plus, the business case for mental health in the workplace is clear—for every $1 invested in mental health, $4 returns to the economy.
Through her personal experiences, training at Grand Valley State University and Western Michigan University and 19 years of insatiable professional growth—she’s built a captivating business model that equips learners to get the help they’re seeking and be their best in the workplace.
Erin’s mental health trainings give immediate resources and tools to transform teams in any industry. Customized design
offers expert instruction for every budget. Her enthusiastic, warm and inviting style eases hesitations to talk about this
too-often taboo topic.
When she’s not training and cheering on businesses, she’s celebrating and supporting her two young children, wife, and
two rescued coonhounds in Grand Rapids, MI.
