About Corporate Health Partners
Corporate Health Partners was founded almost two decades ago to help employers improve their performance by addressing a fundamental truth: unhealthy, unhappy employees sap an organization’s morale and coffers, whereas healthy, happy employees incur fewer expenses, increase productivity, and enjoy a better culture. Corporate Health Partners knew that employee health could be measured objectively and that it could be enhanced systematically to create demonstrable improvements. Corporate Health Partners was born out of this vision.
Since its founding, Corporate Health Partners has helped companies like yours cultivate engaged, healthy workforces. We engage the majority of your workforce year-round, not just the already healthy and confident. Data drives our approach. We evaluate participant risks and provide the proper tools and support to improve or maintain their health and wellbeing. We continuously report data and insight to show progress in real-time. Our dedicated account team manages the entire program with passion and professionalism for maximum effectiveness and minimal strain on your internal staff. We do the work. You enjoy the benefits of healthy, happy, engaged employees and a stronger company.
