CLEVELAND--(Business Wire)--
Bravo Wellness, a provider of results-based incentives for wellness, announced
that MasterBrand Cabinets, Inc., its 50th customer, selected Bravo Wellness to
implement its wellness initiatives for its 5,700 US employees. 

"Traditional wellness programs just do not work because they are not tied to
results," states Robert Jacobs, Executive Vice President of Human Resources at
MasterBrand Cabinets. "Results from other wellness initiatives that Bravo has
done cannot be ignored, and results-based wellness programs like Bravo`s need to
be a critical component of a national health strategy." 

"We routinely see over 97% of those eligible participate in the wellness
assessment," says Jim Pshock, Founder and President of Bravo Wellness. "Bravo`s
plans are typically designed to incent participants who choose healthy lifestyle
behaviors and increase costs for those who do not. Accommodations are made for
individuals with medical issues that might make a typical healthy lifestyle goal
unreasonable. Tying employee costs to their healthy choices is a real motivator
and actually works." 

MasterBrand Cabinets represents the 50th company to select Bravo Wellness to
manage its results-based wellness initiative since its inception in 2008. Bravo
Wellness` compliance expertise and state-of-the-art technology enables
organizations to find all of the support they need to move beyond wellness
participation goals to outcome based programs, whether incentives or penalties
are employed. Most of Bravo`s clients have experienced a 97% participation and
significant return on investment in the first year. Bravo Wellness provides
consulting, administrative support for the appeal/reasonable alternative process
and custom programming to convert results into a payroll or eligibility file. If
needed, Bravo Wellness can also arrange biometric screenings, health risk
assessments and health coaching through strategic partners.
