New Agreements Reflect the Rising Demand for Employee Wellness Benefits for Women & Increased Focus on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
P.volve, the national employee wellness provider and the leader in evidence-based functional fitness for women, announced that Easterseals Michigan, Globant and SmileDirectClub have engaged the company for employee wellness and fitness.
These employee wellness benefits partnerships come on the heels of 145 percent year-over-year growth at P.volve, coupled with new additions to its roster of employee wellness and fitness offerings. In June, P.volve announced a first-of-a-kind turnkey “Moving with Menopause” program for employers to offer to their employees. This complements hundreds of sculpting and cardio workouts in addition to “Movement Therapy” programs developed to help women with specific challenges and conditions they face in all stages of life. They include pelvic floor health, endometriosis, menstrual cycle syncing, pre- and postnatal care and pain management programs targeted at different parts of the body.
“Our employee benefits model is a turnkey solution for employers who want to empower their female and female-identifying employees with educational content in conjunction with a comprehensive science-backed, holistic fitness method,” said Julie Cartwright, President of P.volve. “In just a few months, we have seen a big uptick in employers wanting to learn more about our employee wellness offering.”

“Partnering with P.volve, a company fully dedicated to helping and supporting women, will allow us to reach our goal of creating a place of inspiration and growth, a workplace based on equality and diversity,” said Agustina Alberto, People Director for US & Canada at Globant.
Partnership with Easterseals Michigan
Easterseals Michigan will partner with P.volve to offer employee wellness benefits to more than 1,000 employees. Under the terms of the agreement, Easterseals Michigan employees will be offered a 12-month membership that includes access to thousands of on-demand and live virtual classes.
“We were introduced to P.volve as a wellness partner during our Mental Health IS Health campaign in May, and later partnered with them to support our employee wellness initiatives because of their proven track record and clinically-based approach to fitness,” said Jackie Hooper, Vice President of Human Resources for Easterseals Michigan. “Given that 85 percent of our employee population is female and within the age range of 25 to 55, we believe P.volve is in the best position to serve and empower our employees. As a non-profit organization that provides services, supports and advocacy for people with disabilities, families, and communities, we are pleased to be able to take this step to advocate for and support our own employees through wellness membership in P.volve, a company founded and operated by women.”
