FREMONT, CA: Wellness Coaches announced 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 offers services that are available at no cost under many health plans, turnkey based and easy to implement, and 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. Further, it strengthens our position as the largest provider of onsite Wellness Coaches and Registered Dietitians."
