Virgin Pulse Wins Global Business Excellence Award for Outstanding Product

Virgin Pulse, the market leader in the rapidly-growing employee health engagement category, today announced that the Virgin Pulse Daily Engagement Platform™ has won the Global Business Excellence Award for outstanding product/service. The Global Business Excellence Awards recognize companies that are working smarter than their competitors with examples of true business excellence across all sectors around the world.

Virgin Pulse’s Daily Engagement Platform helps organizations close the employee engagement gap by providing employee-centered programs and tools that go beyond physical wellness. Unlike narrowly focused, one-dimensional solutions, Virgin Pulse is a hub of consumer-focused strategies and innovative tools that combine to drive real change across every aspect of an employee’s life. Organizations that believe in the power of a highly engaged workforce choose Virgin Pulse as a cornerstone of their wellbeing strategy because of its platform’s ability to improve the total quality of life of individuals, families and communities by engaging employees across all aspects of their lives: physical, emotional, social, financial and more.

“We all want to improve our lifestyle by being healthier and feeling more motivated,” said Andrew Aeroff, chairman of the judges for the Global Business Excellence Awards. “The new Daily Engagement Platform created by Virgin Pulse is doing just that, helping employees to get more out of life and boost wellbeing. The platform is taking the engagement sector by storm with participation rates in the program far exceeding anything else on the market. Congratulations to Virgin Pulse for developing an innovative wellbeing program that is increasing employee engagement and helping people to improve their quality of life – a winner in every sense.”

The Virgin Pulse Daily Engagement Platform delivers a personalized, social experience, offering each user his or her own web portal where they can track physical activity and a range of other healthy behaviors, monitor health and progress over time, and earn rewards such as money and discounted health insurance based on their participation. The Virgin Pulse Daily Engagement Platform also integrates many of the world’s leading fitness technologies, which means users have access to a wide range of consumer health and fitness tracking apps and devices that can be managed within a single site to monitor all activity and nutrition data. Integration with popular applications and devices such as Fitbit, MyFitnessPal, Polar and RunKeeper gives users even more options to participate in social wellness programs, fostering increased engagement.

“At Virgin Pulse, we pride ourselves on taking a unique approach to engagement that’s turning the wellness game on its head,” said Chris Boyce, CEO of Virgin Pulse. “This honor from the Global Business Excellence Award reinforces our position as a disruptive force for good in the wellness industry. With a focus on engagement and improving every facet of employees’ lives, our Daily Engagement Platform provides employers with a truly innovative approach to creating a happier, healthier and more productive workforce.”
