In Davos last month we announced "What's Working," a global HuffPost editorial initiative to double down on our coverage of what's working.

We've launched a dedicated section on The Huffington Post, ReWork: Rethinking Work and Well-being. Here you'll find success stories, news about what's working, innovative programs, case studies and the latest data about the many positive business effects of well-being and sustainable work practices. Since our workplace culture is driving so much of the epidemic of stress we all feel overwhelmed by, it's going to be our workplaces that will accelerate the changes already underway. More and more people are realizing that they don't have to put their humanity on hold when they leave for work, that they're more than their résumés and that a sense of well-being and success doesn't have to come at the cost of burnout. And more and more companies are realizing that investing in their employees' well-being is also good for business.
