Celebration includes charitable activities with the Heart & Stroke Foundation's Big Bike and CAMH's One Brave Night
TORONTO, Nov. 13, 2018 /CNW/ - LifeSpeak Inc, a digital wellness platform serving hundreds of clients and millions of employees around the world is proud to celebrate 15 years in business. To honour this milestone, LifeSpeak is embarking on fifteen months of celebrations, by participating in charitable events with the Heart & Stroke Foundation's Big Bike and CAMH's One Brave Night, as well as launch special contests, promotions, and events exclusively for LifeSpeak clients.
Key to LifeSpeak's success has been their technological transformation into a robust, on-demand platform that provides employees and their family members with around-the-clock access to top-quality content in several formats, along with proven engagement tools. This, along the unique ability for LifeSpeak members to learn directly from North America's leading experts, has resulted in explosive user engagement.
"Over the past 15 years, challenges facing employers and their employees have become radically more complex, and investment in technology and content has allowed us to provide help to a rapidly growing number of people," says Michael Held, founder, LifeSpeak Inc. "We work hard to ensure that we offer our member organizations a breadth of original, credible content that is up to date with current conversations happening around health and well-being."
From the start of his career as a corporate lawyer and strategy consultant, Michael realized that many of the people he worked with were struggling. Each of them was dealing with any number of personal challenges, making it difficult to be fully present at work. Michael understood that employees needed to be supported and to understand that they weren't alone. He believed in a preventative approach through expert education so that people could help themselves effect positive change in their lives, at their own pace, and give them the ability to proactively tackle their challenges — both at work and at home.
LifeSpeak's commitment to operational and service excellence has translated to long-term client relationships. Through research and listening to client feedback, LifeSpeak has been able to stay at the forefront of employee issues ranging from nutrition and exercise to career development, family relationships, and financial health, as well as sensitive topics such as suicide, sexual assault and workplace harassment. In recent years LifeSpeak's robust portfolio of mental health content has been particularly in demand.
"It's important for employers to help reduce the stigma around mental health, and LifeSpeak has been a catalyst in our efforts to do so," says Dennis Jang, Supervisor, People Services at Save on Foods, a chain of supermarkets across Western Canada. "Through LifeSpeak, we are able to support our team members with professional, educational resources on a variety of topics that are important to them."
