Welcome to Episode 1 [Part 3] of the “Cultivating Healthy and Vibrant Workplaces” Podcast featuring an interview with two accomplished Workplace Wellness leaders, Philippa Dawood of Scarborough Health Network, and Jesse Gavin of Baylor College of Medicine.

In this 3-part episode, we explore whether a reset is needed on some level for Workplace Wellness to meet the evolving needs of our employees and organizations attributable in part to the pressures and challenges imposed by the pandemic. Segments 1-3 offer a plethora of inspiring, thought-provoking, tactical considerations and strategies to amplify employee and organizational well-being in this dynamic, hybrid work environment.

  1. The structure, benefits, and successes of Baylor College of Medicine’s 3-tier Wellness Champ Program.
  2. Opportunities to leverage Champions to meet the new and emerging wellness needs of organizations and employees.
  3. Incorporating the 13 factors of the “National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace” in Workplace Wellness strategic plans and initiatives.
