Getting Back to Work with Bloom Health Partners
No one ever imagined getting people to work in an office would become a huge employee relations issue. Join us Wednesday, Jan 19 as we discuss this issue with Andrew Morton, CEO of Bloom Health Partners.
Andrew Morton is a seasoned global technology executive with a track record of successfully building and running innovative companies.
As the raging Omicron variant of COVID-19 infects workers across the nation and the coronavirus pandemic continues to disrupt labor markets globally, employers nationwide are in search of the best solution to help companies and schools return to work safely.
Bloom Health Partners was born in the midst of the pandemic and has had a huge hand in helping Hollywood productions, theme parks, events, Fortune 500 companies—and now, schools—safely reopen their doors. Bloom helps companies and industries navigate the covid crisis and continue to function by offering flexible Covid-19 testing and advisory solutions.
What exactly is Bloom Health Partners?
Can you tell us a little bit about creating a pop-up covid testing site in a parking lot and what happened to lead up to that moment?
What happened next? How did Bloom go from a parking lot to working with Fortune 500 companies, TV and Movie Studios and schools ? What is your vision for the Bloom service platform?
Tell us about the Custom Covid testing programs you have built and how they help companies get safely back to work.
What are common challenges that executives are facing when navigating rTW?
What are the hard decisions they are having to make?

So long and thanks for all the fish, 2021 (antiwork and NLRB)
Michael does a solo show to end the year with a quick review of a LOT of labor relations developments
Used as a humorous way of expressing farewell, used especially when a business closes, someone leaves a position, something is retired from the market, etc. The phrase comes from the title of the 1984 novel by Douglas Adams, in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series.
r/antiwork uses the slogan "Unemployment for all, not just the rich!" Members of the subreddit are known as "idlers" in reference to the Protestant work ethic. Posts commonly criticize hustle culture and share stories of employees' negative experiences at their jobs, including unfair treatment and poor working conditions as well as poor pay. The most common issues raised by members of the subreddit include "stagnation of wages, overworking, being expected to be on call on and off the clock."
