NEW YORK, June 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Unmind, the leading workplace mental health platform, has been awarded as a Well-Being Trailblazer by the Wellness Council of America (WELCOA) and Archetype Solutions Group — in the first-ever Well-Being Trailblazer competition — for its world-class, science-backed technology used to improve the mental health of workplaces everywhere.
The Well-Being Trailblazer competition sought to find and award the nation's most innovative worksite wellbeing companies. After rigorous review, four innovative companies were recognized for making meaningful contributions to workplace health and employees' ability to lead healthy, resilient, and fulfilling lives. Unmind was awarded among the other recipients, including Wellview Health, LearnLux, and Peerfit.
"Employers are looking for better ways to drive positive cultural change around mental health in the workplace, and improving employee mental health and wellbeing is a global opportunity finally getting the recognition it's always deserved. At Unmind, we believe helping people lead more fulfilling and balanced lives is only possible with preventative care," said Dr. Nick Taylor, co-founder and CEO of Unmind.
The four Well-Being Trailblazers were honored for designing solutions for holistic wellbeing and their innovations made to reduce barriers that get in the way of humans thriving and flourishing. 2021 awardees will be featured in a live-streamed event where they will be interviewed by industry thought leaders. Viewers can register to attend the event on July 14 and vote for the "People's Choice Award" to recognize the top Trailblazer.
"Today, workplace health companies need to innovate to meet the unprecedented and growing challenges every employee faces to stay well. Each Trailblazer we have selected this year is making a demonstrable impact through their product or service, and they have done so in unique ways," said Chetan Bagga, CEO at Archetype Solutions Group.
Launched in 2016, the Unmind platform was built from the ground up for employees, with employer needs in mind.
