BOSTON– The Bulfinch Companies, Inc. announced a partnership with Wellable, an award-winning employee wellness technology and service provider. The partnership will enhance Bulfinch’s employee wellness program and offerings.

Following more than a year shutdown of non-essential workspaces and closures and capacity limits on gyms and fitness centers, Bulfinch is collaborating with Wellable to provide its employees (and tenants) with resources to stay active and engaged in company culture as Bulfinch plans for a return to the office and assists tenants facing similar decisions.

“Bulfinch is dedicated to the health and wellness of our team, particularly during the last year due to increased stress and restrictions due to the pandemic. We continue to explore new ways of providing our employees, and our tenants, with healthy programming and educational resources whether they are in the office or working remotely,” said Pamela G. Yang, Managing Director, COO at Bulfinch. “With Wellable, we’ve designed a program that promotes positive lifestyle behaviors and elevates the employee and tenant experience through a tech platform and on the go app.”

Wellable is a wellness technology platform that enables organizations to create programs that help employees thrive by engaging them in holistic well-being educational modules and activities. Wellable supplements its digital experience with on-site and virtual services and rewards administration to maximize engagement, resulting in a healthier, happier, and more productive workforce and greater business success. Wellable works with employers, health plans, and properties of all sizes across the world, with active users in more than 23 different countries.

Through its partnership with Wellable, Bulfinch employees will have access via mobile/wearable devices to the following capabilities and resources:

  • Bulfinch’s New Wellness Platform – seamless implementation of the Wellable Wellness Platform with all leading consumer wellness apps and wearable devices; holistic wellness challenges that engage users in fun and interesting topics; customization and integration with Bulfinch-specific initiatives; numerous reward options to drive participation and generate results.
  • Bulfinch’s Health Content – proactive delivery of reliable, evidence-based health information that covers a wide breadth of topics and is timely (i.e., sunscreen during the summer, flu shots in late fall and winter, etc.).
  • Bulfinch Wellness On-demand – Streaming access to exclusive classes/content from top trainers from across the globe for all fitness levels. Wellable offers more than 400 classes to choose from, with new content being added each month.

Bulfinch will kick off the program today with its “Step into Summer” step count challenge encouraging employees to increase their daily step count over a two-week period (running from July 17 – July 30). Through the Wellable mobile app, challenge participants will track progress and earn points for steps and distance. Participants will receive leaderboard updates throughout the two-week period along with tips for having a safe and healthy summer.

In addition to its employees, Bulfinch tenants leveraging HqO’s commercial office building tenant experience platform (through Bulfinch’s partnership with HqO) have access to Wellable’s Wellness Platform, Health Content, and On-demand courses through the HqO marketplace mobile application.
