Limeade Advisory Board – Behind the scenes

The greatest driving force for Limeade innovation is our customers. We’re lucky to partner with some of the most forward-thinking employers in the world, and we’re committed to turning their ideas, obstacles and feedback into action.

That’s why we launched the Limeade Advisory Board (LAB) – a group of senior HR leaders at customer organizations who provide strategic guidance on the direction of our business. Last month, we wrapped the final meeting of our 2015 cohort.

The discussions were enlightening, strategic and energizing. They included:

  • Customer panels: Several LAB members shared their annual goals strategies and significant learnings to date. The key takeaway? Employers in completely different industries (we’re talking government vs. high tech) face the same opportunities and barriers to success – such as promoting wellness champions and connecting program engagement to business results. 
  • Business insights deep dive: In a $20 billion HR tech industry, employers need to justify the impact of their spend. Members broke down the insights and stories that truly matter to their businesses.
  • “Orca Tank”: Like “Shark Tank,” but with a Pacific Northwest twist, LAB members pitched their big ideas to the Limeade leadership team. Our favorite customer quote: “Limeade is stronger than the sum of its customers. Together, we have the chance to impact entire communities.”
  • Product Science Fair: We showed members the coolest and most forward-looking Limeade “inventions and experiments” and solicited feedback to refine our long-term vision.
  • Special session with former president of American College of Preventive Medicine: He’s kind of a big deal. Dr. Michael Parkinson shared his view on what it really takes to improve health, well-being and productivity in the workplace – and what’s holding us back.

We started our day with a short (and gorgeous) flight from Seattle to San Juan Island.
