Framingham, MA - (November 9, 2016)

Virgin Pulse, the leading global provider of employee wellbeing software that drives culture and productivity, proudly announces its recognition as an InfluenceHR Brand Power Award winner in the Employee Engagement category. The InfluenceHR awards, presented last month in Chicago by The Starr Conspiracy, honor the strongest HR Technology brands.

The InfluenceHR Brand Power Awards recognize the highest level of brand awareness, message focus, market position, and competitive strength. Recipients are selected based on quantitative and qualitative research used by The Starr Conspiracy Intelligence Unit to produce its Vendor Brandscape Reports™. Top industry brands are awarded in the following categories: Engagement, Talent Acquisition, Learning Technology, HCM, Benefits and Rewards, and Hot Startups.

“Employee engagement is critical to business success, and Virgin Pulse’s solutions have been designed to drive both individual and organizational outcomes,” said Chris Boyce, CEO, Virgin Pulse. “When businesses have healthy, engaged employees, organizational health improves significantly. Companies see greater productivity, stronger recruitment and retention, improved collaboration and culture, lower healthcare and worker’s compensation claims, and even higher profitability. Investment in workplace wellbeing is growing globally– beyond being the right thing to do, ensuring employee wellbeing is the most impactful way to create a high-performing workforce that drives business results. We’re proud to be leading the employee engagement market, and thrilled to be recognized by InfluenceHR for leading in this area.”

Virgin Pulse offers the only suite of employee wellbeing and engagement solutions designed to support organizations across their entire wellbeing journey, from traditional, outcomes-based wellness to fully integrated wellbeing that encompasses the whole employee, including mental, physical, emotional and financial wellbeing. Built on Virgin Pulse’s flexible platform, the company’s culture-first solutions are designed to help organizations build engaged, high-performing workplace cultures that drive meaningful business results.
