Notable Heroes in Health Care: COR Wellness

COR Wellness chief executive officer Jerry Curtin has spent his career working to understand the essence of employee performance at GE, Eaton, Standard Process and now COR Wellness. 

Sussex-based COR provides on-site wellness coaching and diagnostics to employees at their workplace. 

The COR Wellness model features voluntary participation by employees and generates a return on investment for employers with a proprietary client-specific “Measure-It-To-Manage-It” calculator.

COR monitors and tracks key wellness factors and variables in employees, including depression, blood glucose, blood pressure, body weight, tobacco use, physical inactivity, stress, cholesterol, nutrition and eating habits and alcohol consumption.

“The results have been incredible,” said Tom Nicholson, operations and finance vice president of Mukwonago-based GS Global Resources, a COR client. “COR Wellness gives us a competitive advantage recruiting and retaining talent. We value company culture. When we brag to a candidate that we offer on-site and virtual wellness coaches, it’s a game-changer. It helps us attract the best.”
