“Empowering People with Unique Wellness Programs”

Trisha Dohn, Founder & CEO of Well365, is passionate about corporate wellness. From day one, her grit, determination, passion, and motivation has allowed Well365 to be what it is today. Trisha has empowered women with her unique ideology all through her career, “do not be afraid to fail. You have to move outside of your comfort zone. Failure is an inevitable part of success, from which we learn,” she says. “Don’t be afraid to accept feedback, because it is critical to validate your business. And most importantly, never stop learning! Although I have been in corporate wellness for 20 years, I continue to learn every day! I also learned quickly on during my entrepreneur days to surround myself with other like-minded people! Minimize the negative people who aren’t going to lift you up and support you!”

“We are an independent, corporate wellness company that understands wellness is more than healthcare costs. We understand that many companies are trying to implement wellness programs with their insurance carriers, yet may experience lack of flexibility, experience or solutions for engagement, outcomes, and long-term success. As a result, more programs fail than succeed.”

Trisha’s parents are at the forefront of being her role models, along with her husband and children. “My parents built a successful business 40 years ago and from an early age, I was surrounded by the skills it took to create your own success. They have been my support from the beginning and encourage me when I need extra motivation,” she says. Armed with these qualities, Trisha has been taking the company to new heights.

Well365 was created because Trisha identified a need for an independent, corporate wellness company that could serve as a one-stop shop for organizations locally, regionally, and nationally. Well365 is a small business that can be autonomous, flexible, and customize solutions with results for organizations in all industries. At Well365, their services complement one another and help provide the best possible outcomes for employees and employers.

“For one of our clients, the combination of biometric screenings and health coaching is proving effective across major health metrics: overall health score, weight, BMI, and blood pressure,” she explains. “Biometric screenings provide employees with the data needed to take charge of their health, and our health coaches—all of whom are healthcare professionals (Registered Dietitians, Registered Nurses and Exercise Specialists) and use the data in confidential, one-on-one conversations to help those employees reduce risk factors and improve overall health. These core components are part of a comprehensive wellness program run by Well365.”

This client also has multiple locations for screenings and health coaching with a diverse employee population. Because of the diverse employee population, it became critical for the team to offer flexible health screenings and health coaching options. “We offered onsite biometrics, home test kits and physician lab forms for employees to know their numbers, and also offered onsite, telephonic and virtual coaching opportunities,” adds Trisha. “By using a coaching network that is unified in methodology, as well as providing a dedicated team with expertise in executing wellness, our client was able to able to see significant results.” These transformations included participants with two or more coaching sessions in 2019, lost, on average, 5 pounds between their 2019 and 2020 screening. Participants with three or more coaching sessions in 2019 lost an average of 10 pounds between their 2019 and 2020 17 screenings. Participants with two or more coaching sessions in 2019 decreased their BMI, and of these, 9% moved down from the “Obese” to the “Overweight” category. Participants with two or more coaching sessions in 2019 decreased their blood pressure 1.5x more between 2019 and 2020 screenings than participants with fewer than two coaching sessions.

Well365 will continue to look at staying innovative for the days to come while providing services with results for the clients locally, regionally, and nationally. From their mental health initiatives to an online wellness subscription service, Well365 Thrive, they will continue to look at how they can serve clients of all sizes in all industries and locations. “We offer multiple of options of biometric health screenings and health coaching to serve our clients no matter where they are located,” adds Trisha. “Our online wellness platform also provides customizes solutions for organizations whether they are offering participation or outcomes-based wellness programs.” IE
