Catherine Lamson

Show Topic:

Affinity groups, mentoring, sponsorship, in many organizations, employees will say, we have these programs, but they have limited success. So how does an organization recognize the need for such a program, and even more so, how does an organization make it work?

In this episode of HR Power Hour, join host Tawny Alvarez of Verrill as she talks with Catherine Lamson, Senior Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer at MEMIC as she discusses how the Million Women Mentors program acted as the catalyst for her and her team to create a mentoring program to emphasis STEM work within the insurance and provide MEMIC employees with an opportunity to connect with co-workers in a mentor/mentee fashion.

Catherine will discuss the successes and hiccups experienced in rolling-out MEMIC’s mentoring program in the midst of a pandemic and how the program has organically evolved to meet the needs of the MEMIC team, resulting in a tripling of program participants in the first year.

About The Guest:

Catherine is the Senior Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer at MEMIC. She came to MEMIC in 2002. After 10 years in banking, she entered the healthcare sector working for Maine Health, the largest healthcare system north of Boston, and gained another 11 years of experience in a tertiary care hospital and medical laboratory setting.

She is responsible for the corporate administrative functions of the organization which are inclusive of human resources, compensation (cash and non-cash), benefits, training and education, along with responsibility for all real estate holdings and all facilities management functions throughout the system.

Shelby Turcotte

Show Topic:

This week on HR Power Hour, we have a replay of the new year, new you. Despite the pandemic, as in past years, many employees are likely at the beginning journeys of new year’s resolutions. When those resolutions involve health and wellbeing, often bringing a professional in helps employees stay on track and accountable, helping them to achieve their goals.
 
 
And what do healthy employees make? Usually happier and more engaged employees and what does that mean for your organization—well I don’t think any of us have argued that engagement is negative.
 
 
Join Verrill co-host Tawny Alvarez as she speaks with Shelby Turcotte, founder, owner, and trainer at Shelby Trained for a discussion on helping employees meet their health and well-ness related goals and his “Simplementation System” for success.

About The Guest:

Shelby is an author, performance consultant, and owner of Shelby Trained – a personal training business located in Yarmouth, Maine.
 
He is also the creator of the Simplementation System™, a health & wellness-based system that is built upon successfully implementing evidence-based actions into people’s busy lives. When he’s not training, running a business, or reading self-help books, you can find him drinking coffee or enjoying time with his wife and 2 daughters – often at the same time.

David McNeff

Peak Consulting Group

Show Topic:

This week on the HR Power Hour, the question of if Work-Life Balance being attainable is asked and according to the author of the new book The Work-Life Balance Myth: Rethinking Your Optimal Balance for Success, there is no such thing. There are two important facts: 1) stress happens―you can’t avoid it, and 2) your existence is composed of far more than “work” and “life.” The critical concept of seven slices in your life and how to have harmony with them is exactly what CMA’s host David Ciullo discusses with author Dave McNeff.

About The Guest:
