Online Tool Promotes Brain-healthy Activities
In time for Brain Awareness Week, which began on March 16, The Conference Board and the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives announced the launch of YourBrainatWork.org, a new, publicly accessible, interactive, online tool which promotes brain-healthy activities for employees of all ages.
"Keeping up with the latest in ever-improving technologies and ever-evolving workplaces requires that people learn faster and better than ever, especially on the job," said Jeri Sedlar, senior advisor to The Conference Board on Mature Workforce Issues. "This tool is easily digestible and would make a great addition to a workplace wellness or other human resources initiative."
YourBrainatWork.org, created with funding from The Atlantic Philanthropies, connects the latest research in the field of cognitive science to practical suggestions for working and living smarter and longer by highlighting the brain's capacity for improvement, reinvention and dynamic growth at every age. It also allows users to get answers to questions relating to their own particular needs, and includes games, quizzes and other interactive features that test and exercise cognitive fitness.
