A mindfulness-based approach focusing on the secret ingredient to business success, the human element. GLUED promotes behavior change through better daily health and the art of compounding habits.
Wellness programs are typically a “self-led approach”. They focus on your employees taking a “life-coach approach” centering on personal development through Mindfulness, Mindset and Movement (The M3 Method).
The goal is to dial-in productivity and create a culture of health & happiness.
That’s why the M3 Method focuses on these problems
Reducing Stress & Burnout
Improve Overall Employee Health
Progress Equals Happiness
When one feels they are progressing, they will show up in all aspects of their life better, especially at work.
When they are happy, you are happy.
Employees that attribute this to the company they work for are loyal.
