Cultivate signs new agreement for on-site services

Palmyra-based Cultivate by Standard Process Inc. announced it has signed an agreement with Flambeau Inc., an injection molding facility in Baraboo, for on-site, chiropractic-led corporate wellness services.

“Flambeau has had its own clinic for over two years, and the addition of Cultivate will add another level of service for our associates,” says Mark Rieland, Flambeau director of human resources. “We are excited about the cooperative effort to reduce work-related injuries, as well as providing nutritional counseling and chiropractic care.”

Cultivate’s on-site chiropractic-centered wellness model delivers statistically- and clinically-significant differences in employee health factors and the reduction of long-term health risks, according to the Medical College of Wisconsin and UW-Milwaukee School of Public Health.

These conclusions derive from 10 years of employee data at Cultivate’s parent company, Standard Process, which engaged the Cultivate on-site, chiropractic-led wellness program. Participant blood pressure, nutrition and stress levels improved along with better body mass index, cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

Roughly one-third of the Standard Process employee base initially participated in the Cultivate corporate wellness program, and currently 97 percent participate. The results have been a 55 percent reduction in health care costs; 24 percent reduction in short-term disability claims; 18 percent reduction in spousal health care costs; and 60 percent reduction in employee turnover.

“We’ve seen firsthand the impact that dedicated, trained chiropractors can have being on-site as a truly integrated part of an organization’s overall wellness program,” said Cultivate president Jerry Curtin. “We offer corporations statistical proof that our corporate wellness model—partnered with key corporate functions in HR, finance and operations—delivers sustained improvement to employee health factors.”
