Washington, D.C. – Today at The National Business Coalition on Health (NBCH) annual conference, hubbub health, a software-as-a-service mobile wellness program, will be recognized as a leader in corporate wellness as a finalist in NBCH’s “Innovation” category. NBCH is a non-profit organization of purchaser-led business and health coalitions offering eValue8 awards each year at their annual conference to recognize innovative programs that address critical health care issues.

hubbub uses social networks, incentives and gamification to successfully engage employees in challenges in the areas of exercise, eating, stress management, socialization and lifestyle changes. Targeted at the small and mid-sized business market, hubbub can be paid by the employer with a credit card with monthly subscriptions at 3 dollars per employee per month, and offers device integration with UP by Jawbone, Fitbit and Withings.

“We are honored to be a member of such an exclusive finalist group for our innovative corporate wellness program,” said hubbub Vice President of Sales and Marketing Brian Berchtold. “The start of innovation is as simple as trusting and empowering employees to engage their friends and family in their wellness journey. I’m excited to share hubbub’s modern wellness philosophy with NBCH conference participants, offering them our recipe to success.”

Brian Berchtold will be speaking at the 19th annual NBCH conference at the Washington, D.C. Marriott Wardman Park hotel at 3:15pm in room Roosevelt 2. Specifically, he will speak to the traditional corporate wellness model offering a “one size fits all” approach to employee engagement. He will demonstrate how more companies are realizing that this approach doesn't foster engagement or meet the needs of many participants. Brian will outline how many organizations are using technology, social media and gamification to support their wellness strategies. 

Attendees to Brian’s session will learn how to break engagement barriers and help employees reach their personal health and wellness goals, specifically:

  • Why understanding human behavior and motivation is essential to engagement
  • How to leverage technology and social gaming to engage your employees in healthy activities
  • Why one should embrace their company’s social network instead of police it
  • How to take the understanding of human behavior, the culture of an organization and social media and implement a successful wellness program
