Wellness Coaches is excited to announce they have completed the acquisition of Corporate Wellness Nutrition (CWN). The acquisition is a strategic pairing of Wellness Coaches’ established, onsite and technology based coaching services and CWN’s cutting-edge corporate nutrition services led by a team of 45 Registered Dietitians (RDs) servicing corporate clients. CWN’s services are: (1) available at no cost under many health plans, (2) turnkey and easy to implement and (3) evidence-based with published outcome data demonstrating the significant impact RDs have on employee well-being and healthcare costs.

“We believe everyone would like to be and stay as healthy as possible. We also know that it is not easy for people to accomplish this on their own, and most will need one-on-one, professional help and support along the way,” said Rob Putnam, CEO of Wellness Coaches. “We have also established that the best place to deliver the employee engagement and health risk improvement outcomes necessary to make a meaningful difference is in the workplace. The acquisition of CWN’s evidence-based corporate nutrition services significantly enhances our portfolio of capabilities and further strengthens our position as the largest provider of onsite Wellness Coaches and Registered Dietitians.”

CWN Founder and President Krista Yoder Latortue adds, “For more than a decade, CWN has shown that our corporate nutrition services are a vital solution for employers seeking to minimize the driving forces behind rising benefits costs and preventable health risks. Our organization has been RD led and operated, championing the importance of including RDs, the nutrition experts, as a key component of corporate wellness programs. Our model aligns perfectly with Wellness Coaches’ existing services and we see CWN as a strategic part of the combined organization’s future growth.”

Krista will serve as President and lead the newly combined corporate nutrition services for both companies.
