Back in February, we hosted an amazing lunch and learn session on the topic of retention of tech talent from underrepresented backgrounds. We discussed how wellness and self-mastery programming have emerged as one of the most powerful tools to address the issue of retention.
Mental health and wellness were once considered taboo topics in the workplace. But in 2020, they became major areas of focus for companies. For every dollar spent on wellness programs, companies can expect their healthcare costs to decrease by $3.27. As the world (and workplace) becomes more unpredictable, self-mastery skills will be the key to employee success.
Employees responded to this year’s challenges by focusing on skills like managing stress and adapting to change. Courses related to anxiety management, resilience, and stress management skills saw quadruple-digit growth in 2020.
Growth in the demand of Self Mastery Skills Training:
Anxiety management + 3,967 %
Resilence + 1,296 %
Stress management + 1,015 %
Mindfulness + 784 %
Meditation + 886 %
Wallbreakers has responded to this increased demand by creating an offering of self-mastery skills training for employers that are passionate about helping their employees thrive.
In particular, our offering focuses on programming to help companies retain underrepresented talent. By addressing personal well-being, companies can help employees from diverse backgrounds:
feel valued and welcomed,
develop purpose-driven careers,
find their passion and “flow” within their organization,
stay engaged, and
be mindful, healthy, and joyful at work and in their personal lives.

We create programs customized to align with the vision, mission, and purpose of the organization. The program can be created in conjunction with an Employee Resource Group (ERG) or any other team in the organization.
