Episode # 38 – Special COVID-19 Workplace Perspective: Treena Meyers

Today’s guest is Treena Meyers, Director of Human Resources and Training at the Fleet Science Center of San Diego . SAFFIRE LEGAL PC’s founder and principal attorney Teresa McQueen talks with Treena about her experiences – professionally and personally – in dealing with the impacts of COVID-19. 

Designated as a world-wide pandemic in early March, the effects of COVID-19 are touching all of our lives with far reaching implications as the edges of our personal and professional lives begin to blend together; a direct result of ‘shelter in-place’ orders and the shuttering non-essential workplaces. We’ll hear how Treena and her team at the Fleet Science Center managed to navigate this unprecedented event and be inspired by her words of hope and encouragement. 

Shortly California’s Governor Gavin Newsom’s March 19, 2020 stay at home order was issued we at Workplace Perspective began preparing a series of COVID-19 related episodes. Our goal: To share some real stories from real people who are, like you our listeners, dealing with this novel and ever changing environment. We hope you find our guests stories inspirational, affirming and encouraging. 

Rest assured that we at Workplace Perspective, in compliance with California’s shelter in-place order, are broadcasting for the foreseeable future from our make-shift home studios.

“There is hope in all of this….”

Treena’s Surviving COVID-19 Tips

  • Remember, there is hope in all of this; that we’re going to get through this and we’re going to come out stronger on the other side. 
  • Find joy in your day. Consider keeping a daily ‘Thankful Journal’ to keep track of the things you are most thankful for in your life.  
  • Count your blessings. Ask yourself what can you do for your community. What are the things you can still do to impact somebody for the better? How can you impact the community you work with?
