US Corporate Wellness, Inc. was launched at the kitchen table in a small home in the foothills of Colorado. It was founded on the idea that focusing on lasting, meaningful change in the lives of individuals would have a significant ripple effect. Not only would the employee’s life be enhanced, but so would the lives of those around her. As a result, organizations could create a strong and sustainable ROI in the form of enhanced culture and overall productivity, controlled health care and disability costs, sick time and turnover.
The strategy? Engage… Measure… Optimize. While personal accountability must always be a central component, it is supported through personal engagement and an individualized improvement process. Rather than trying to change the core of an individual employee, we work with the individual in a meaningful way to help create a tomorrow that is a little better than today. In doing so, the organization gleans a strong ROI while simultaneously enhancing the lives of the organization’s purported “most valuable asset.”
Today, the US Corporate Wellness Team is comprised of a wide range of coaches, health care providers and experts from around the country, many of whom can be seen on our Coach page. In the beginning, however, it was the vision, work and faith of our Founders that helped make US Corporate Wellness into the model for personalized employee wellness that it is today.
