Virgin Pulse Named One of Boston Business Journal’s Healthiest Employers
Framingham, Mass. - (March 18, 2015)
Virgin Pulse, the market leader in the rapidly-growing employee health engagement category, today announced that the Boston Business Journal has named the company as one of the Healthiest Employers for the second year in a row. The award recognizes local businesses of all sizes that have made great efforts to create exceptional health and wellness programs for employees.
The Healthiest Employers Award uses an online assessment tool that measures wellness programming in six key categories: Foundational Components, Strategic Planning, Communication and Marketing, Programming and Interventions, and Reporting and Analysis. Completed assessments were ranked with the proprietary Healthiest Employer Index, a 1-100 metric for wellness programming.
Virgin Pulse understands that today’s demanding world leaves employees overwhelmed, depleted, and disengaged, so it strives to replenish both its clients’ employees and its own workforce with tools that help them build better habits. Based in Framingham, Mass., Virgin Pulse offers two state-of-the-art on-site fitness centers, free instructor-led fitness classes, complimentary healthy snacks, free wearable fitness devices and mobile apps, and much more to help employees get and stay healthy. Virgin Pulse is committed to helping employees thrive beyond the corporate walls with perks like flexible work arrangements, telecommuting, dental/vision coverage, long-term care coverage, short-term and long-term disability coverage, life insurance, and generous healthcare benefits and paid time off.
“We’re honored to once again be named one of the Boston Business Journal’s Healthiest Employers,” said Chris Boyce, CEO of Virgin Pulse. “Health and wellbeing is a core part of our company’s culture and it’s critical to our mission of changing lives for good. We know small daily wins drive big, lasting results for people and companies alike. Along with creating a healthy culture, we drive daily behavior change with a simple, personalized technology platform that builds good lifestyle habits – both for our clients’ employees and our own people.
