What’s Happening at EM
Pharmaceutical Meeting Planners using Array
At Pharma Forum this week in Washington DC, Educational Measures (EM) discussed features of their Array iPad® compatible software before a crowd of pharmaceutical meeting planners. All 650 participants were provided an iPad® by EM to view content and engage with participants during the conference.
Top Gun Speaker
Educational Measures takes great pride in their company values and are always looking for ways to reinforce the importance of those values to the organization. Once a month EM provides a healthy lunch for employees and invites a guest speaker to come and share his/her personal stories with everyone, while linking them to the company values.
Our most recent speaker was Rob Ffeild, a two-time TOPGUN Instructor/Executive Officer and head of the highly respected Blue Angels. His stories were inspiring to all and truly helped reinforce the values held at EM.
Optimizing Use of Interactive Technology in Live Meetings
Educational Measures discussed the optimization of interactive technology and its importance in medical education at the annual Alliance for Continuing Education in Health Professions Conference last month. They provided listeners with tips and techniques that can be applied at live meetings to increase the utilization of technology by the attendees to positively impact a presenter’s effectiveness.
The presentation also touched on how advancements in technology have brought great opportunities to engage learners, but it also takes the deliberate effort of educational planners, instructional designers, faculty, and collaborative technology partners to maximize event impact.

EM helps out with Wounded Warrior Project
Thanks to an EM employee being connected with the Wounded Warrior Project in Colorado, several employees were able to volunteer at two veterans’ homes that were wounded in active military duty. The volunteers painted, built stairs, replaced trim boards, ripped out and planted shrubs, and much more at these two homes in Castle Rock. This opportunity partnered with the Douglas/Elbert Realtor’s Association and Helping Hands in order to serve these men and their families.

EM’s Health and Wellness Initiatives
Educational Measures promotes health and well-being for all of its employees, and puts that priority into action in several ways. One way is through a personal fitness trainer that visits the office twice a week to conduct increasingly arduous workouts for any employee who wishes to participate. Another is through their 6 month pilot program using a personal health coach, who is helping employees work on their personal weak areas by setting goals and imparting wisdom and resources to improve areas of their well-being including emotional, mental, physical, relational, diet, and lifestyle. “Their taking the initiative to help increase health-consciousness and satisfaction in all areas of life creates and excellent atmosphere for employees here at EM.”
