BOSTON, March 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Wellcoin announces the release of its new corporate wellness product, Employee Connect. Employers can join for free at www.wellcoin.com/EmployeeConnect.

Employee Connect extends the company's mission to help people live healthier lives by targeting workplace wellness.  Wellcoin members log positive activities and earn Wellcoins for their efforts, which they can redeem for rewards in the company's Marketplace. The Employee Connect platform additionally serves as a hub for employers to integrate any existing corporate wellness initiatives.

"We are thrilled to launch this product. People spend a third of their lives in the workplace, so employers play a critical role in promoting healthy living," says Dr. Glenn Laffel, the CEO and a former Cardiologist at Brigham and Women's Hospital. "Employee Connect allows employers to create a robust wellness program regardless of budget and resources."

Wellcoin's early success on the consumer side stems from the wide range of healthy activities for which Wellcoins can be earned. This variety assures that everyone can participate, regardless of their physical conditioning, age or underlying medical conditions.

"I love this app," says Employee Connect member Molly S. "The daily feed has brought our coworkers together through healthy living. Posts serve not only as motivation, but also as a resource for local activities and recipes."

The free version of Employee Connect includes:

  • An unlimited number of employee accounts
  • An employer-branded landing page that helps companies organize and manage their wellness initiatives
  • An administrative portal to distribute rewards and analyze employee participation
  • Access to free rewards in the Wellcoin Marketplace

Premium features, including a first-of-its-kind automated gift card distribution platform, are also available.

Employers can sign up or learn more about Employee Connect by visiting www.wellcoin.com/EmployeeConnect or emailing employers@wellcoin.com.
