The Healthy Workplace: What is it and how do you make it happen?
with Richard Wilkinson
If our workplaces are manifestations of our collective imaginations, why not make them healthy? Richard Wilkinson, UW Tacoma’s Associate Vice Chancellor for Organizational Effectiveness & Development, and several UW colleagues wrestled with this question, collaboratively producing a chapbook containing their answers. Richard will share the process they followed in identifying the eight dimensions of a healthy workplace, its day-to-day characteristics, and the initial steps to making it happen. Attendees will receive a soft copy of the chapbook.
Richard Wilkinson currently serves as the University of Washington Tacoma’s Associate Vice Chancellor for Organizational Effectiveness and Development. In that capacity he oversees staff HR, mentors academic HR, facilitates a variety of organizational improvement and change management initiatives, and leads management development workshops campus-wide. He is the author of UW Tacoma’s Supervisor’s Toolbox, several articles, including “My Journey to the Center of HR” in Higher Education Workplace magazine, and co-author of The Healthy Workplace Chapbook, the creation of which he facilitated with fellow UW colleagues. He is a featured practitioner in the 25th anniversary edition of Marvin Weisbord’s The Productive Workplace.
Richard’s eight-word brand is, “Caring leader; skilled facilitator; evangelist for better management.”
Prior to joining UW Tacoma, Richard worked in HR and organization development leadership capacities in global health, both in the UW’s Department of Global Health and the Seattle-based NGO, PATH. This followed fifteen years as HR Director for the City of Redmond, Washington.
He has graduate degrees from the University of Southern California in public administration and Antioch University Seattle in organization development.
