Expanding the wellness program in an organization from inception as a part time employee to a global initiative is no easy task, especially when wellness doesn’t typically get a seat at the table. Today’s guest, Cassie Buckroyd, Wellbeing Programs Manager at Columbia Sportswear Company, has done just that and believes the secret to her success lies in partnership and collaboration.

With more than 20 years in various health and wellness roles, Cassie Buckroyd has created a wellbeing program that is a cornerstone to the total rewards and talent programs at the company.

In this episode, Cassie explains her role as Wellbeing Manager and the process of spearheading Columbia’s COVID response team. She shares how parts of her job have taken her out of the traditional scope of wellness, how some of these opportunities have expanded and shaped her career, and the skills she’s utilized along the way.

Cassie discusses some of the challenges she’s experienced, including not always being given a seat at the table, and offers wellness professionals a tangible tip to expand their scope.
