Sacred Conversations on Work

In this interview, Dan reflects on his early analysis of where work was headed nearly 20 years ago (with his first book on the rise of freelancers). He points out the unseen forces that have shaped the work environment that we have today—one where social media fuels unhealthy comparison, where top performers have more options outside of traditional forms of work, and where retirement doesn’t come at 65 years of age. This leads to a discussion of how workplaces need to adapt.

Sacred Conversation On Work

Episode 26

In Episode 26, Carol talks with Sara Martin, COO and Director of Strategic Initiatives at the Wellness Council of America, also known as WELCOA. Sara’s purpose is helping people fulfill their highest potential in work and life through corporate health promotion.

In Part 1 of this two-part interview, you’ll hear Sara’s personal story and how it led her to conclude that traditional wellness at work programs are missing the mark. The things we don’t want to talk about are the things that really impact wellness. More than lowering medical costs and addressing physical needs, Sara outlines the elements of what a real wellness program should cover, to help employees flourish on many levels.  Sara connects these elements with tangible business metrics.

You’ll also hear about the role of emotions in the workplace, why work is sacred, and the data on wellness and business outcomes.

Sara has launched award winning wellness programs, created new wellness products, and engineered work environments to create cultures of health across multiple industries.  She has been a session and keynote speaker at a variety of community and national events including National Health Enhancement Research Organization (HERO) Conference, the Art and Science of Health Promotion Conference, and the National WELCOA Training Summit.  She sits on the Johns Hopkins Mental Health in the Workplace Advisory Council and the CDC Workplace Health Resource Center Steering Committee. 

Sara’s background includes corporate training, organizational development, and health promotion management. Before joining WELCOA, Sara managed the award-winning Well@Work employee wellness program for the 5,000 employees of BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee and served as a Health Management Consultant for BlueCross.

Sara received her BA in Psychology from the University of Alabama in Huntsville and her M.S. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
