Michelle and her team at The Wellness Value work with companies to make the workplace a happier, healthier place. The team works with companies to create a baseline to help them understand where they are at the moment and what they can do to improve. She believes that leadership is what sets the tone for the culture. While you may talk about self-care and wellness, leaders must also work around the clock. You can also find programs such as education, stability training, or health coaching. It is important to remember that each employee is unique and not just one size fits all. Because they are helping employees on their path to good health, this helps with retention and recruitment. They connect employees with a health coach and help them to set goals. These objectives are used to create programs that fit each individual’s needs.
Michelle was in the rat race and she felt burnt out. She knows from personal experience that it caused her to lose sight of what is important. She was answering phones on her commute to work, at home, and on weekends. She was putting her family and herself last. She made the difficult decision to slow down, live more intentionally, and be more focused on her family. Michelle and her family live in northern NH, with their 3 dogs and 22 chickens. Michelle’s greatest accomplishment is being a mother of two wonderful children.
Michelle is a leader in the development of customized wellness programs. She works with managers, HR leaders, and other stakeholders. These programs are individualized and provide employees with a personalized experience. They focus on employee wellness and wellbeing rather than addressing individual issues. This approach yields tangible results for organizations. Michelle would love to meet with you to discuss how she can bring about positive changes in your company.
She believes the universe will give you everything you want and need. Michelle says, “Maybe luck and a little bit of hard work, but if you put your mind to it, you can achieve anything.” It’s been quite an educational journey. This transition was both exciting and terrifying at the same moment, but she has learned a lot as she grows her business.
