Please Don’t Take A Seat

Episode #054



Scott welcomes Laura Putnam, author of “Workplace Wellness that Works” and founder and CEO of Motion Infusion, a San Francisco-based well-being consulting firm. Laura believes achieving wellness takes more than a program; it takes a cultural movement. People are biologically meant to move, but our culture – including our workplaces – encourage us to sit and be still. Laura has taken her message of creating an oasis of well-being within the workplace to audiences nationwide, and now Side Affects listeners can learn more about the fresh approach to achieving a healthier workforce.
