Today’s guest is Marnie Dobson Zimmerman, Ph.D. Associate Director of the Center for Social Epidemiology in Los Angeles, California, and Campaign Director of the Healthy Work Campaign. Healthy Work Campaign is a project of The Center for Social Epidemiology.
Marnie discussed how the Healthy Work Campaign was started, and what the Healthy Work Survey is, and shared some information from that survey. Marnie and I discussed how a toxic work environment can affect an individual’s performance and mental, emotional, and physical well-being.
Betsy and Marnie discussed work overloads, handling grieving in the work environment, and how people in management would benefit from creating a positive atmosphere. Also discussed how employers should consider flexibility with employees who have children or who are caregivers. Everyone would enjoy working in a healthy positive environment.

Healthy Work Campaign offers a variety of different resources on its website to help individuals and companies have a healthier work environment.
