“I am honored to be working with the Virgin Pulse executive team. Employee health and wellbeing are topping HR priority lists across the globe. Employees are feeling stressed, digitally overwhelmed, working more hours than ever before and sleeping less. At the same time, they are becoming more vocal about their health and wellbeing needs and are seeking solutions and support from their workplaces to help them manage these issues,” said Bersin. “This is a wonderful mission for HR departments to champion. I look forward to helping HR leaders navigate this market and unlock the business value of employee health and wellbeing.”
