According to a report by the US Chamber of Commerce and MetLife, minority-owned small businesses are disproportionately affected due to the pandemic and the associated economic crisis. The survey found that two in three (66%) small minority companies are concerned about having to close their businesses permanently, compared with 57% of small non-minority companies. In addition, more than 80% of employees diagnosed with clinical mental health problems have kept it a secret from their employer.

“More than 20% of companies – including Panda, Kimberly Clark, Apple and Nike – have started incorporating wellness and mindfulness programs to keep their team engaged and motivated,” said D Sharma, Co-Founder and CEO of Wellness Trainer. “We want to make holistic wellbeing more accessible to smaller, minority-owned businesses that have been harder hit by the pandemic.”

“Small businesses had a busy year both financially and emotionally. The data show a disproportionate and greater financial impact on minority-owned small businesses. In addition to normal financial burdens, many small businesses have heavy family and community responsibilities – all of which have a profound impact on workplace productivity and overall wellbeing, ”said Wilson Muscadin, Certified Financial Educational Instructor, Wellness Coach. “Having a workforce that focuses on physical, mental, and financial well-being, as well as self-sufficiency, is a tremendous competitive advantage – as preventative health and holistic wellness efforts can nurture a more coherent, productive, and resilient workforce.”

The key features of the Wellness Coach platform that will be part of the free memberships include:

  • Accessible tools for mental and physical wellbeing
  • Personal financial advice
  • Nutritional advice
  • Activities and guidance for a better sleep
  • On request and live courses and content
  • Team wellness challenges
  • Wellness audio books

All of these wellness tools and features are available on mobile devices and ready to use right out of the box. The Wellness Coach platform offers some of the highest engagement rates compared to other wellness solutions such as Headspace or Calm and an effectiveness value of 97%. This makes them an ideal addition for individuals and teams.

“As a minority-owned company, we understand the unique challenges that founders and their employees face every day,” said Julie Sharma, co-founder and COO of Wellness Coach. “Minority businesses have been disproportionately affected this year, and we are providing the necessary resources and tools to help enable holistic wellbeing based on each individual’s individual needs.”

The free memberships are for the first 100 employees of a minority-owned company (defined as at least 51% owned or having at least 51% of the shares of members of minority groups – including women and those who identify as Asia-Indian, Asia-Pacific , Black, Hispanic / Latino / Latina / Latinx, Indian or more than one of them). To qualify for the free membership offer, contact Wellness Coach.
