Tammy Williams, Founder and CEO, Envision2bWellTammy Williams, Founder and CEO Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, the problems of chronic disease, work-related stress, and employee disengagement were costing businesses trillions of dollars. This expenditure is expected to rise even higher in the wake of COVID-19 and the impact it has had on the physical and mental health of employees. Considering these factors, a majority of organizations today are seeking to replace their existing siloed and disconnected employee wellness systems with a single, comprehensive solution that can simplify the management of employee health and wellness for employers and individuals alike.

One company that is at the forefront of offering a unified digital health and wellness platform is Envision2bWell, Inc. The company’s solution and platform, EnvisionWell®, was designed with a social determinants of health and ‘people first’ mantra that Tammy Williams, founder and CEO of Envision2bWell, believes is critical in helping businesses effectively drive health and wellness within their workforce. “It’s all about the user,” says Tammy. “Above all, an effective workplace wellness program must be accessible, personally relevant, easy-to-use, and engaging.”

Turning Experience into Excellence

During her three-decade journey in the global HR space, change management, and business strategy arenas, Tammy witnessed first-hand the ever-increasing number of unwell, stressed, and chronically ill employees. She watched as HR directors and specialists implemented wellness programs with the best of intentions only to see them fall dramatically short of what they promised. With a birds-eye view, Tammy could tell that the problem was that these were cookie-cutter solutions and people don’t fit inside a box. This is what sparked the idea for EnvisionWell. For Tammy, it has always been about Social Health Empowerment®.

“The data proves what has always seemed like common sense to me,” says Tammy. “An unhealthy workforce means an unhealthy company, and a healthy workforce means a healthy company. People who are well in body, mind and spirit bring so much more to the table. In order to truly tap into the potential of your employees, it is imperative to provide them with the tools to live their healthiest, most joyful life.” Subsequently, when the COVID-19 pandemic pushed the business landscape, along with the entire world, into unforeseen circumstances, Tammy was compelled to further the company’s commitment to Social Health Empowerment®, changing the legal structure of her company to a Public Benefit Corporation, which makes Envision2bWell a For-Profit Social Impact company.

Today, Envision2bWell offers companies a customizable, integrated, digital health and wellness platform, EnvisionWell, combined with an engagement team to help facilitate and guide the process. The platform comprises several robust features ranging from high-level data for employers to highly detailed health and wellness data for users. Everything begins with their proprietary engagement model based on the four foundational elements of their Social Health Empowerment® framework - Knowledge, Support, Access and Autonomy (KSAA®). This is what empowers users to engage with the platform and gain a deeper understanding of how to create a more sustainably healthy lifestyle.

Social determinants of health and wellness impact up to 80% of health outcomes. We cannot effectively help people get well unless we address them

Delivering Holistic Wellness

Because her background gave her front row seats to the fallout that occurs with fragmented, disconnected, cookie-cutter employee wellness platforms, Tammy purposely built the EnvisionWell platform to close the gaps in traditional workplace wellness programs. Envision2bWell’s proprietary engagement model, KSAA® (pronounced KISS-UH), and the KSAA® Assessment survey were developed to help companies identify unrecognized social determinants of health and wellness so they could be more effective with their employee wellness programs. Social determinants of health are the conditions in the places where people live, learn, work, and play, and they influence a wide range of health and quality-of-life risks and outcomes.

“Social determinants of health and wellness impact up to 80% of health outcomes. We cannot effectively help people get well unless we address them. With the KSAA® assessment, clients gain insight into the social determinants of health affecting their workforce combined with engagement and satisfaction. It’s the perfect trifecta,” explains Tammy. Once the KSAA® Assessment provides the overview, Envision2bWell analyzes the data and guides clients on the best possible ways to improve employee health, wellness and engagement. The company’s engagement team then collaborates with clients to customize the EnvisionWell platform to best fit their particular needs.

The 10 Pillars of 360° Well-Being®

As a company that is committed to Social Health Empowerment®, Envision2bWell has designed its entire portfolio based on the ’10 Pillars of 360° Well-Being®’ which are: Eating, Fitness, Finance, Health, Humanity, Kindness, Mental Health, Relationships, Spirituality, and Work. These pillars, combined with the company’s 10-point health scoring system, which includes health markers such as stress index, cardiac workload and more, enables the company to approach an employee’s wellness with a comprehensive, whole-person approach. “Being healthy is more than just losing weight and it is time to shift the focus from more traditional healthcare benefits to an inclusive health and wellness model that serves both society and the company bottom line,” states Tammy.

From a user accessibility standpoint, the EnvisionWell platform is built to empower users to ‘Be 360° Well®’, with simple dashboards, impeccable data privacy and security, as well as ease-of-use. The platform is HIPAA compliant to drive enhanced efficiencies in communicating with healthcare providers for employers and employees alike.

Employers can glance at the overall health and wellness levels within their organization daily with the platform’s dashboard, while employees gain a clear picture of their health with EnvisionWell’s HIPAA protected My Personal Body Blueprint feature that lives solely on the employee’s personal side.
Every employee with EnvisionWell can switch back and forth with a simple toggle button between their personal EnvisionWell app and the employer’s version. This offers full protection of their private data, as well as increased opportunity to engage with the platform and share it with their families and loved ones.

With such strong competencies, Envision2bWell has ignited several success stories since its inception.In one instance, the company helped a global client gain a deeper understanding of their employee health and wellness levels. To assist the client in achieving their goal, Envision2bWell performed its KSAA assessment in English, Spanish and Mandarin, which helped the customer identify the hindrances in employee health and wellness across their global footprint. The company then worked closely with the client to develop personalized motivation challenges that leveraged AI/ML models and delivered 360-degree wellbeing for their employees.

A Culture of Innovation and Diversity

At the heart of its proven track record is Envision2bWell’s diverse organizational culture, which is driven by its generation-spanning workforce that includes Baby Boomers, Gen X-ers, Millennials, and Gen Z-ers. The company’s C-suite is a 50/50 minority that is laser-focused on using technology to help workforces across the globe. According to Tammy, everyone that comes on board with Envision2bWell is drawn into its mission to empower, enable, and inspire health and well-being for humankind. Concurrently, the company’s dedicated innovation lab where everyone is, in Tammy’s words, ‘an intrapreneur’ enables it to be nimble in developing prototypes rapidly and continuing to innovate with AI and ML. “We hold daily meetings that are just for ideation. The innovation circle includes everyone, but the sub-circles are technology, engagement, business solutions, research and marketing,” adds Tammy.

A Future of Promise

Envision2bWell will continue to innovate their product and solutions to meet the needs of the market and forge ahead in its mission to transform employee wellness. Above all, Tammy envisions a world where everyone has the tools and resources they need for Social Health Empowerment®.

Moving forward, Envision2bWell plans to release the second iteration of its My Personal Body Blueprint (MPBB 2.0) that will allow users to gain vital information on their health biomarkers such as stress index, risk of heart attacks/strokes, and their overall wellness score in real-time without a wearable. Following that, Envision2bWell also plans to release the My TeleWellness feature of their platform, which is their answer to telehealth, with integrated, holistic telecare comprised of mental health counseling, fitness, coaching, nutrition and other counseling services. These new features further broaden and deepen the impact on the lives of Envision2bWell’s customers and users with a complete wrap-around solution.

To conclude, Tammy reiterates the ethos of her company, “In today’s world of disconnected wellness platforms coupled with confusing and unclear communications about the true health of our bodies, minds and spirits, EnvisionWell will continue to be the one resource that unifies it all to fully empower people on their journey to 360° Well-Being and Social Health Empowerment.”
