Watch our Webinar to learn how your company can achieve your positive business engagement goals.
Did you know that Forbes has named 2018 “The Year of Employee Experience”? WeSpire Founder & CEO Susan Hunt Stevens and Malia Atta, diversity business consultant for MGM Resorts, shared their expertise in a webinar about how to inspire employees to take positive action and how to prove it’s driving impact.
In the first part of the webinar, Stevens highlights two new modules that WeSpire launched in January. The first module is focused on holistic wellbeing with campaigns like mindfulness, meditation, stress reduction, and healthy eating. The second is focused on positive workplace culture, including diversity and inclusion, driving innovation, agile work and gratitude. She shares how using WeSpire’s analytics tools, companies are able to measure the impact that various programs are having on retention, performance and brand.
Our guest speaker Malia Atta from MGM International also shares their experience using the platform to tackle implicit bias and engage employees in diversity and inclusion initiatives at MGM. said Malia Atta, Sr. Business Consultant Diversity & Inclusion of MGM Resorts International.
In this webinar, you will also learn about:
- How WeSpire’s new Wellbeing module helps employees be more active, healthy, mindful and less stressed and how the Positive Culture module drives agile, inclusive and resilient workplace cultures.
- Our partnership with Urban Labs, an organization which works with businesses in integrating diversity and inclusion into leadership and corporate culture

If you’ve ever used Classpass, taken a PureBarre class, or booked a haircut appointment, chances are that you’ve used the app from Mindbody Online, an innovative technology company that helps wellbeing companies to run and scale their businesses digitally.
Last week, co-founder & CEO Rick Stollmeyer took out full page ads in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, met with Jim Cramer and appeared at the NASDAQ to issue a call to action to the business leaders of America. America’s employees are not particularly healthy, it’s costing everyone a lot of money [$3.4T was spent on healthcare], and people need help and support to improve fitness, eat healthy and reduce stress which contributes to 75% of the expense. The #MakeAmericaWell challenge encourages business leaders to commit to investing more in employee wellness.
However, Mindbody doesn’t offer employee wellbeing solutions to corporations directly and Stollmeyer wanted to offer a solution for those leaders who took the challenge and needed one. We were so proud when MindBody decided to include a reference to WeSpire in the challenge – and highlight our increased investment in wellbeing programs and our revolutionary behavior change platform. This way, leaders who want to invest more in wellbeing but are struggling to implement a program have at least one option right in front of them.
“At MINDBODY, our purpose is to help people lead healthier, happier lives by connecting the world to wellness. WeSpire provides an employee wellness solution that allows corporations with a technology platform to design, run and measure the impact of their employee engagement initiatives.These programs encourage employees to take actions that are good for them, good for the company and good for the world we live in.” said Amanda Patterson, VP of Corporate & Brand Marketing of Mindbody.
So if you think your company’s leadership should increase their commitment to employee wellbeing, encourage them to take the #MakeAmericaWell challenge. And if you are at a company that’s struggling to design, run and measure the impact of employee wellbeing campaigns, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We’re happy to help.
