[Podcast] RL 66: Mike Ethridge — Wellness in the Workplace

In this episode, I am excited to have Mike Ethridge back on to discuss wellness in the workplace. For those that haven’t listened to the previous episodes with Mike (which I would highly recommend,) Mike is an attorney from Charleston, SC, and a champion of wellness for lawyers.

Topics Covered

  • Mike defines and breaks down what wellness means to him personally and the importance to lawyers of keeping its definition expansive (i.e. physical, emotional, spiritual, psychological, etc.)
  • The need to restructure our viewing of wellness in the law firm setting and seeing wellness as an investment rather than focusing on hours billed as a unit of productivity.
  • How to begin structuring and implementing a wellness and well-being program in the workplace, how to fight the culture that puts wellness on the backburner, and the weight of being the change you want to see in the workplace.
  • Talking on the importance of measuring the effectiveness of wellness programs, what could be metrics of measurement, and if it could be measured in the first place.
