Take a Break!

Join us on July 26 at 10am ET during a complimentary Ignite the Joy of Work series 1 hour Webinar!

No, we’re not talking about that mad dash to refill your workday beverage of choice, only to get back to your workspace in time to grab the next phone call, and scroll through the 20 emails that landed during your mad dash. That’s barely a swipe at the Pause button of your day. How can you manage true breaks from the action, in a culture that demands you be constantly available and immediately responsive?

In this session, we will:

  • Define what your organization gains by enforcing true breaks.
  • Answer the question: “But, who will do the work?”
  • Identify what you, as a leader, gain by routinely scheduling these breaks.


The BluePrint Toolset® is recognized by SHRM to offer Professional Development Credits (PDCs) for SHRM-CP®or SHRM-SCP® recertification activities.
