These companies and nonprofits have achieved relevance through cultural impact and social engagement, and authentically communicated their missions and ideals. Virgin Pulse was selected for its innovative approach to health and wellbeing engagement, and tackling the challenges of today's healthcare market. "Virgin Pulse is a brand that matters because engagement matters," said Chris Michalak, CEO of Virgin Pulse. "The only way we're going to move the needle in healthcare is to get people more proactively involved in their health – taking action every day to be healthier, understanding their benefits, managing their conditions, and navigating costs and providers. We make it easy and engaging for members, while also delivering real results and measurable value for businesses and their people. Thank you to the Fast Company team for this honor, and an even bigger thank you to the Virgin Pulse team for your passion – what you do matters!"

Its Homebase for Health® platform serves as a one-stop-shop for all things health, wellbeing, and navigation, providing employers, health plans, and health systems with a total solution that drives outcomes for their business and their people. This includes VP Navigate , Virgin Pulse's recently enhanced benefits navigation and advocacy solution that helps members understand how to get quality care with confidence and cost clarity. Virgin Pulse combines a self-service digital experience with guidance from live experts to deliver world-class engagement – with millions of members returning an average of six times a day to the platform's programs, partners, coaches, and resources. By leveraging a proprietary combination of behavior science, data on over 275 million people, and incentives that are motivating for members, Virgin Pulse has a sustained continuous engagement of 50% – well above standard wellbeing solutions. By delivering an engaging employee experience, Virgin Pulse is helping organizations improve outcomes (70% improvement in clinical health metrics among high-risk populations) and increase retention (by up to 48%). "Changing business for good begins with prioritising your employees' health and wellbeing. I've always said that if you take care of your employees, they will take care of your business. Virgin Pulse helps companies create thriving workplaces where employees can take charge of their own health journey and are engaged and empowered to bring their best selves to work every day. I'm so proud to see Virgin Pulse recognised as a brand that matters," said Sir Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group.
