The Challenge Connecting a Dispersed Workforce While Creating a Healthy, Engaging Culture.

Ascend Performance Materials is a global manufacturer of chemicals, polymers, and fibers. Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Ascend has five U.S. manufacturing locations. For its 2,300 employees, Ascend provides more than employment – it provides a growth experience unique to the organization.

One such experience the company wanted to provide was a change in the thinking and actions of its employees around well-being. Ascend wanted new, innovative ways to encourage employee engagement in a healthier lifestyle. With a dispersed workforce, Ascend was challenged with engaging employees across all five locations.

  • "Family has always been a critical part of our health and wellness strategy. With every wellness program that we offer today, we go out of our way to make sure spouses and significant others are eligible to participate and receive incentives."

    - Michael Martin Total Wellness Director, Ascend Performance Materials

  • “When our employees know we care about them, they respond. They’re willing to get off the recliner if we invest in them as a person. Virgin Pulse has been very effective in promoting a culture of wellness at Ascend, and most important, healthier lifestyles for our employees.”
