Virgin Pulse Recognized as a Preferred Partner Offering a Best-in-Class Employee Well-being Solution

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. - (September 28, 2015)

This program will enable Virgin Pulse to provide employers and employee benefits consultants with quick, easy access to details about its holistic well-being program.

Virgin Pulse’s well-being platform enables clients to increase employee engagement and productivity, build culture, and improve health by providing employees with tools that help form and sustain habits that matter and ultimately drive business results. Through inclusion in WRI’s Wellness Navigator, the company will expand it’s reach to leading employers who seek to create healthier, more productive workforces while also building great places to work.

About the Wellness Research Institute

The Wellness Research Institute (WRI) was formed with the belief that a major obstacle to the successful implementation of a wellness strategy is that employers are not accurately identifying the wellness vendors best suited to achieve their unique goals. A wellness program cannot succeed and achieve its desired outcome if this fundamental first step is incorrect. To overcome this, WRI built the Wellness Navigator. The Wellness Navigator is a tool that helps Consultants and Employers identify the optimal partner to achieve their health and productivity goals. Learn more at
