May 22, 2018 / Corporate Wellness
THE EMPLOYEE HEALTH AND WELLBEING DREAM TEAM IS HERE
We’re excited and humbled to join RedBrick Health as we raise the bar on employee health, wellbeing and engagement. Virgin Pulse + RedBrick joining forces will create the world’s largest, most comprehensive digital health and engagement solution and deliver the only integrated digital platform with benefits navigation and live coaching to support global clients and members across the entire health, wellbeing and benefits lifecycle – from screening and assessment to activation, behavior change and the adoption of sustainable, healthy habits.
“We are thrilled to join with RedBrick to set a new vision and standard for employee health, wellbeing and engagement,” said David Osborne, Virgin Pulse CEO, who will serve as CEO of the combined company. “As first-movers in this space, and with substantial investment from our new partner, Marlin Equity Partners, we are well-positioned to execute an aggressive growth strategy and change even more lives around the world for good.”
What Does This Mean for RedBrick and Virgin Pulse Clients?
This is great news for Virgin Pulse and RedBrick clients who will be able to take advantage of expanded capabilities. By the end of this year, Virgin Pulse clients will be able to access RedBrick’s health assessments, expert live and digital coaching, and benefits navigation through Virgin Pulse’s API-based framework, allowing Virgin Pulse to interact more deeply with members to optimize their health and wellbeing.
In addition, RedBrick clients will have access to Virgin Pulse’s unparalleled challenge capabilities.
“The merger is a win for the entire industry – clients, consumers, partners, consultants – and raises the bar for what employers and employees should expect from their engagement partner,” said Dan Ryan, CEO of RedBrick.
Together, Virgin Pulse and RedBrick have the largest customer base in the industry, with over 3,300 clients including public sector organizations, health plans, universities and more than 20 percent of the Fortune Global 500 companies.
What are the Logistics?
RedBrick and Virgin Pulse will unite under the Virgin Pulse name but continue to operate as separate brands. The combined organization will be based out of Virgin Pulse’s corporate headquarters in Providence, RI, and will maintain a major office in Minneapolis, MN and a coaching center in Phoenix, AZ.
The company also has global centers of excellence in multiple international locations, including Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Bosnia, Brazil and Singapore.
