The concept of “Be Well… Do Good” was a theme central to the original launch of US Corporate Wellness. Pursuing a state of well-being is clearly valuable, but it was never intended to stand alone. Rather, good health allows us greater opportunities to do GOOD! It provides more energy to help those around us, reduces both the time and financial resources often devoted to sickness, and provides a brighter outlook on life that allows us to look for opportunities to lend a hand to a neighbor. The goal of being well isn’t simply to “be well” in our own little isolated bubble. Rather, the goal of being well is to allow us to do more good in the world! The founders of US Corporate Wellness have made it their goal to model this by living out the mission in practical ways, some of which are highlighted here on the site.
Many organizations devote a percentage of their profits to specific charities, and we made the decision upon the launch of the company back in early 2007 to make this part of our core. We call it our 10% Commitment, a commitment to dedicate 10% of our profits to those in need.
We’d love to hear your stories of how “being well” has indeed provided you with an enhanced opportunity to “do good!” Please send us details to [email protected] and we’ll highlight some of them in upcoming newsletters.
