Top producers on the Emmy Award–winning Dr Oz Show agree that in introducing Transcendental Meditation to the entire staff—and giving everyone time to practise it at work—Dr. Mehmet Oz, the show's host, made ''a great investment'' that is reducing stress and bringing out more creativity and productivity throughout the organization.
''More gets done when people are calm, especially if you're working in a 'media trauma center,' said Senior Supervising Producer Eric Beesemyer. ''By this time in sweeps* there's usually a lot more tears behind closed doors in offices, and I think there's less of that. I think it really actually helps people be more creative, because they are less emotionally burned out. And that makes good business sense.''
''I would say that it is a great investment in terms of giving something to your employees,'' said Susan Wagner, Supervising Producer of Medical. ''I honestly think you're going to see payoffs in terms of lowered stress.''
Dr Oz emphasizes this principle and adds his recommendation: ''It's such a profoundly powerful tool to 'turbo-charge' the people in your organization, it would be unwise not to at least try it.
''If you want your organization, your people, your family, you—if you want to do things smarter, not harder—whatever the mission you have, Transcendental Meditation is your path,'' he says. ''And the fact that it's accessible and available to every one of your employees . . . it makes it one of those gifts that keeps giving.''
* In the American television industry, several periods during the year when shows' national ratings are assessed and advertising rates set—a highly competitive, often stressful time for media organizations.
