Flambeau Inc., Cultivate Sign Agreement for On-Site Corporate Wellness Services

Cultivate’s chiropractic-led wellness approach proves to deliver health cost-savings

PALMYRA, Wis.—June 16, 2015—Cultivate by Standard Process today announced Flambeau Inc. is the latest company to engage its on-site, chiropractic-led corporate wellness services. Cultivate has started to deploy its first-of-its-kind wellness approach at Flambeau’s Baraboo, Wis., facility.

cultivate-logo“Flambeau has had its own clinic for over two years and the addition of Cultivate will add another level of service for our associates,” says Mark Rieland, Flambeau Director of HR. “We are excited about the cooperative effort to reduce work-related injuries as well as providing nutritional counseling and chiropractic care.”

Cultivate’s on-site chiropractic-centered wellness model delivers statistically- and clinically-significant differences in employee health factors and the reduction of long-term health risks, according to the Medical College of Wisconsin and UW-Milwaukee School of Public Health.

These conclusions derive from 10 years of employee data at Cultivate’s parent company, Standard Process, which engaged the Cultivate on-site chiropractic-led wellness program. Participant blood pressure, nutrition and stress levels improved along with better body mass index, cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

Initially, roughly one-third of the Standard Process employee base voluntarily participated in the Cultivate on-site chiropractic-led corporate wellness program. Currently 97 percent of Standard Process employees participate in the Cultivate on-site wellness program. The following Standard Process results, resulting from Cultivate’s approach to corporate wellness, show meaningful factors to improving top- and bottom-line performance.

  • 55% reduction in healthcare costs
  • 24% reduction in short-term disability claims
  • 18% reduction in spousal healthcare costs
  • 60% reduction in employee turnover

“We’ve seen firsthand the impact that dedicated, trained chiropractors can have being on-site as a truly integrated part of an organization’s overall wellness program,” Cultivate President Jerry Curtin says. “We offer corporations statistical proof that our corporate wellness model—partnered with key corporate functions in HR, finance and operations—delivers sustained improvement to employee health factors.”
