In April of 2020, as the coronavirus forced the first major shutdowns in the US, unemployment rates in every state soared to a level not previously seen since data collection began in 1948. Among those affected were today’s guests Chrissy Ball, Michelle Bartelt, and Scott Dinwiddie - highly skilled wellness professionals with over 40 years of collective experience (check out their full bios below).

In this episode, our panel of guests discuss the tumultuous experience of job loss including processing the emotions, resisting the temptation to doubt yourself, and the lessons they’ve learned through this experience. They share plenty of advice for others experiencing job loss, as well as tangible tips for professionals tasked with letting employees go.

This podcast episode is brought to you by Resilience Reboot for Leaders.

In this 4-week session, your leaders (or potential leaders) will watch short Resilience lessons before each class. In the weekly, live Zoom meetings we’ll break into small groups, using the resilience skills learned to apply to each participant's unique situation.

This group will be made up of leaders across multiple organizations, so you can send only the employees you want to pay for. 

First group starts Feb. 16th – each employee is $125 with discounts for 2 or more employees.

Wellness isn’t so much a healthcare problem as a matter of psychological needs fulfillment, according to today’s podcast guest Scott Dinwiddie. He believes organizations need to start looking at wellness as a problem related to value creation rather than downside costs.

In this episode, Scott offers his unique definition of wellness as well as the 4 rules that make up what he calls Wellness 2.0. He takes a deeper dive on these rules, discussing how to connect to the employee voice during the restrictions of the pandemic and how to gain traction and collaboration on addressing problems with the employee experience. Lastly, he leaves listeners with a tangible tip.

Expanding the wellness program in an organization from inception as a part time employee to a global initiative is no easy task, especially when wellness doesn’t typically get a seat at the table. Today’s guest, Cassie Buckroyd, Wellbeing Programs Manager at Columbia Sportswear Company, has done just that and believes the secret to her success lies in partnership and collaboration.

With more than 20 years in various health and wellness roles, Cassie Buckroyd has created a wellbeing program that is a cornerstone to the total rewards and talent programs at the company. 

In this episode, Cassie explains her role as Wellbeing Manager and the process of spearheading Columbia’s COVID response team.
