Mindful Mondays: Finding the Calm in a Pandemic

Mindful Mondays: Finding the Calm in a Pandemic – Next Session: June 8th, 2020 @ 8:45am

Monday, June 8th, 2020

8:30am (log-in time); 8:45am-9:00am Session

Did you now that nearly 7 in 10 employees indicated that the COVID-19 pandemic is the most stressful time of their entire professional career? The same survey by mental health provider, Ginger, also reported that 88% of workers experienced moderate to extreme stress over the past 4 to 6 weeks, and among those people, 62% said they’ve lost at least 1 hour of productivity a day—and 32% lost at least 2 hours a day—due to COVID-19–related stress.

Stats like these show us we’re not alone in feeling the same things; overworked, stressed, and uncertain. And too often these feelings can spiral into anger, resentment, and loss in productivity.

But giving up is not in our DNA. Assemble is taking a stand with our belief that we are stronger together. So with the help of the fearless Dr. Beth Weinstock, co-founder of The Resilience Group we decided to launch Mindful Mondays.

Starting May 18th, we’re creating a space where we can meet for just 15 minutes to start our day and our week with an ability to effectively handle stress, create some clarity, define our focus, and narrow our energy. By slowing down and reflecting on the changes impacting you right now, you can discover the value of these tools in your personal life and business.

Every session is free and will dive into a different topic regarding living through today’s uncertainties and what you can learn about yourself as the external world feels smaller than ever.

In the words of Jon Kabat-Zinn, “Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally simply the art of conscious living.”

These free sessions are appropriate for all levels with no experience required.

A Continuous Pursuit of Excellence: Assemble’s Growing Repertoire of Certifications

Nothing quite identifies an expert like a certification. For many of our clients, this proof of
knowledge is often an invaluable piece to choosing the right partner. Certifications show a
next-level dedication to a particular skill set or tool — one that involves designated hours of
education, practice, and testing to use it as advantageously as possible. And when it comes to
the complex nuances and regulations in a space like Pharma, this couldn’t be more important
for an effective production process.

The Creative Development Process is Shifting; How Do You Do More with Less?

Marketers are increasingly up against significant challenges. Our budgets are tight and resources are lean yet the expectations of our clients and consumers are higher than ever. So it’s become a master balancing act of doing more with less. Pile on the fact that new ad trends are forcing production teams to meet the relentless demand for distinct video creative — one of the most intricate media assets in terms of production.

Why Tools Matter in Studio Production

Efficiency is essential when it comes to digital production. And to achieve it, you need two things: a great team and great tools — the two go hand-in-hand. While there’s no substitute for experience, with that experience comes an understanding of what tools are right for the job. Because without the right tools, that experience will be wasted on tedious, repetitive tasks.
