‘Wrap’ your ears around Headlines’ new podcast (and maybe win an Amazon Echo!)

September 26, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources,

Tune in and turn it up, because Headlines’ new employee podcast, The Wrap, is now live!

With weekly episodes available Fridays, The Wrap aims to keep busy employees informed about what’s happening across Michigan Medicine with news briefs, trivia and more. The new podcast is part of Michigan Medicine’s efforts to bolster effective communications, a growth area identified on this year’s employee engagement survey.

“We’re committed to helping reach our employees in as many ways as possible,” said Daniel Ellman, editor of Headlines and one of the hosts of The Wrap. “We know that a large percentage of our employees spend limited or no time at a computer. Others may have a visual impairment that makes it difficult to read Headlines. The Wrap will allow everyone to stay on top of the news in a short amount of time.”

Each week, find The Wrap embedded on the Headlines website alongside the Week in Review.

You can also listen on iTunes, Stitcher, Amazon and any of your preferred podcast hosting platforms — or load it up on your Amazon Echo and other home devices. Just visit your preferred podcast hosting site and search for “The Wrap by Michigan Medicine Headlines.” Episodes will run about 5-7 minutes.

In addition to the news, hosts share a discount or offer each week available exclusively to Michigan Medicine employees. There will also be a trivia question for cool prizes. Every week, any listener who correctly answers the trivia question will be entered into a quarterly raffle for an Amazon Echo — on which to listen to The Wrap, of course!

So listen up and stay in the know, on the go. Check out the first episode at the top of the story!
