How hybrid coworking could be the solution for isolated remote workers
In the past, remote work has been viewed as a “cushy” gig. You can work in your pajamas, run errands in your downtime, and avoid small talk with coworkers. In reality, home workplaces can sometimes be stressful and isolating.
Although working from home does come with its perks, there are some negative side effects that can accompany spending most of your time at home.
During my time as an intern for The Wellbeing Partners, I’ve been fortunate enough to not only receive experience that I’ll further use in my career but also create and help promote designs and content that better the community. As a graphic design student preparing to graduate from the University of Nebraska at Omaha, I had little idea of what to expect with my internship with The Wellbeing Partners, but day by day and week by week I’m learning more and creating more. The thing that surprised me most about The Wellbeing Partners is the range and versatility this organization has.

Mental health is the way we think and feel, and our ability to deal with the ups and downs of life. It’s something we all have. When we enjoy good mental health, we have a sense of purpose and direction, the energy to accomplish things, and the ability to deal with the challenges that happen in our lives. When we think about our physical health, there's a place for keeping ourselves fit, and a place for getting appropriate help as early as possible so we can get better. Mental health is just the same--necessary for keeping our minds fit and seeking help when we need it.

OMAHA, Neb. (Oct. 14, 2021) – The Wellbeing Partners, a local nonprofit organization focused on building wellbeing into the way our communities and businesses grow through advocacy, collaboration, and education, has announced the results of its mental health stigma reduction campaign, including a 10% reduction in stigma. The 10-month-long awareness campaign covered the Greater Omaha and Council Bluffs areas, resulting in improvements in beliefs and behaviors toward people with a mental health condition.
In 2020, I accepted a new Benefits leadership role at Kiewit Corporation, which would take my family and me from Dallas to Omaha. While that change was significant on its own, COVID-19 definitely increased the intensity of this transition. My boss has been on The Wellbeing Partners’ Board (previously The Wellness Council of The Midlands) for nine years serving as their Treasurer. He is retiring and will be rolling off at the end of the year. He asked me if I would have any interest in serving on the Board. He said, “TWP has a very visionary CEO and an engaged Board, and they do some amazing work!” At first, I had some reservation as I was not sure if I would be able to serve well in the middle of this transition. After learning more about the organization, I was intrigued to learn that their big focus are mental health and mental health stigma. Even better, Kiewit had been significantly elevating its focus and efforts on mental health, making TWP a great fit.
