Jul 21, 2015, 11:29 ET from Viverae, Inc.

DALLAS, July 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Viverae, Inc., a thought leader in workplace wellness, today announced a strategic partnership with the Wellness Research Institute (WRI). The partnership allows brokers, consultants and employers to match their unique wellness objectives with the right wellness provider.

WRI works with seven of the top 20 brokerage and consultant firms in the U.S. and boasts more than 200 wellness companies enrolled in their platform, the Wellness Navigator. Using a proprietary matching algorithm, the Wellness Navigator assesses an employer's objectives, culture and demographics to instantly provide feedback on the best partners to help them achieve their desired outcomes.

Results from the Wellness Navigator give potential partners confidence that all market options have been considered, and appropriate providers are selected for review. With WRI, Viverae anticipates more opportunities to build healthy cultures for employers who seek sustainable, engaging wellness programs that show results.

"WRI has created a Preferred Provider Program consisting of top providers in each niche, such as company size or program offerings," said Viverae founder and CEO Michael Nadeau. "Viverae is now among these Preferred Providers who offer their services through WRI. This partnership creates a win-win-win for Viverae, our consultants and our clients."

The partnership, which began this quarter, has already elicited overwhelming approval from consultants and employers.

About the Wellness Research Institute
The Wellness Research Institute (WRI) was formed with the belief that a major obstacle to the successful implementation of a wellness strategy is that employers are not accurately identifying the wellness vendors best suited to achieve their unique goals. A wellness program cannot succeed and achieve its desired outcome if this fundamental first step is incorrect.

To overcome this, WRI built the Wellness Navigator. The Wellness Navigator is a tool that helps Consultants and Employers identify the optimal partner to achieve their health and productivity goals.
