In this episode of the Transform Your Workplace podcast, Brandon Laws talks with Diane Schwartz, CEO of Ragan Communications and the Workplace Wellness Insider. They dig deep into COVID-19’s effects on important issues like mental health, workplace connection, and the employee-employer alignment of values. Wondering what changes are coming? Tune in to learn what new workplace developments are right around the corner.


  • COVID-19 has a silver lining: it has effectively destigmatized open discussion of mental health.
  • In the post-COVID era, employees will expect employers to allow them to cultivate a healthy work-life balance.
  • Employees want to work for an organization that has values that align with their own. 
  • The future of the workplace includes a hybrid model that incorporates in-person collaboration and at-home individual projects.


Diane Schwartz is the Chief Executive Officer of Ragan Communications, a media event company, and Ragan's Workplace Wellness Insider, β€œan online publication dedicated to giving leaders in HR, wellness, and communications the insights, ideas, and strategies that align employee health and engagement with organizational goals.” In addition to her 25 years of media communications experience, Diane is also a former journalist and a wish-granter with the Make a Wish Foundation.
