When companies invest in the well-being of their employees, they can reap incredible benefits in the loyalty of their

employees, reduced turnover, increased productivity, and overall morale of the workforce.

In a recent survey, MBA graduates rated work-family balance as a more desirable quality than salary

in potential employers at a rate of 70%.  (Chincilla & Torres, “Why become a family-responsible

employer?”  2006)

When replacing an employee, studies show that it cost 150% of a blue-collar worker’s total

benefit package, and 250% of a managerial and sales professional benefit package.

(Tangri, “What Stress Costs,” 2003)

Studies on return on investment (ROI) indicate that companies that spend $1 on programs to reduce stress and increase

workplace health save from $1.40 - $4.90.  (Goetzl, Juday & Ozminkowski, “A Systematic review of return on investment (ROI)

studies of corporate health and productivity management initiatives,” 1999). 

Other studies on employee wellness programs rank the ROI at $6.85.  (Tangri, 2003)

Employees compose the most valuable resource of any business.  They either make you money or cost you money.  They either reduce risk or

compound risk.  The health and well-being of employees directly impact the health of an organization and the ultimate bottom line.  When

employees grow weary or experience life crises (emotional, physical, or spiritual), they become distracted, despondent, and sometimes


An employer generally has three choices in dealing with an unhealthy employee:


Ignore the problem in hopes that healing and health will come in time.


Discard the employee and hire someone new. 


Invest in the employee to demonstrate care, facilitate wholeness, and restore productivity. 

The wise employer considers seriously the third option.  Investing in an employee is far less costly than hiring and training someone new, and

such action creates a proactive environment of care which in turn fosters loyalty and enthusiasm on the part of the employee.  When

individuals are allowed to “sharpen their axe,” they produce more results.  In short, investing in one’s employees pays for itself.  The wisest

employer also invests in himself/herself.

The Journey discovers the unique culture of a particular business and creates a customized plan to help each person reach his/her highest

An organization may require employees to participate in certain aspects of The Journey, or it may allow employees to participate voluntarily. 

Either way, the Journey operates as unobtrusively as possible within the corporate structure.  Meetings may occur before or after work as well

as during lunch breaks.


We will work with your budget to develop a customized plan for you.

Cost is dependent on the length of investment and number of employees involved.

Length of commitment – from individual coaching to a seminar setting, to a long-term commitment of 6-12 months.

Journey groups may also form as employee-initiated studies with the permission of their employer.  These may occur before

work, after work, or during lunch.  There is no cost involved in doing this.  We will coach you and support you.
