Overheard at Puget Sound Business Journal’s workplace wellness event

At Limeade, we’re always seeking opportunities to hear from local industry leaders on how they approach well-being at work. Thanks to Puget Sound Business Journal’s Workplace Wellness Panel Discussion and Expo, we heard from local leaders on:

  • Best practices for implementing a wellness program and creating a culture that supports employee well-being
  • Rapid changes in the industry is seeing
  • New ideas for creating a well-being program that actually works for your employee population

In case you weren’t able to make it to the event, we’ve compiled our favorite buzz-worthy moments from the day: 

“Wellness programs should be an extension of your culture. People want to be a part of something bigger than them.”
– Dr. Darren White, ADURO CEO

“It comes down to understanding the whole-person. Wellness is more than just your physical health.”
– Jerame Thurik, Accolade CMO

“Stay active from the top or else people won’t care.”
-Angie Lepley, Tangerine Travel President 

“We keep each other healthy because our product is our people,” said Lepley, who described how Tangerine Travel offers daily yoga, wii tournaments, a spa-like environment and flexible work options. “It’s all about the little things that really walk the talk.”

“You have to engage everyone — both the healthy and the sick. If you think holistically, then you’re able to drive results.”
– Jerame Thurik, Accodlate CMO
