On this episode of Where Work Meets Life™ – Dr. Laura welcomes her first guest of 2023, author and Chief Medical Director of Employee Health and Wellbeing at Johns Hopkins Medicine, Dr. Richard Safeer to the show. Dr. Safeer just released his first book, “A Cure for the Common Company” and he talks about his book and the benefits of workplace wellbeing.






Richard Safeer wrote his book because he sees that what companies are doing may not be as effective as they thought. He believes there is a better way to use company time, energy, and resources to effect a greater culture of wellbeing. He explains the six building blocks of wellbeing, where the title of his book came from, and how employers are instrumental in the health of their employees in this inspiring conversation with Dr. Laura.

“So, you know, one of the most common challenges I see workplaces have is that the employer takes this individual approach. Here are the resources, go ahead and use them and get better. As opposed to recognizing that we’re all in this together, that our well being is a team sport and that we rely on each other to improve and maintain our health and well-being” – Richard Safeer
