Forward-thinking wellness at its best
Meet the team

At Our Core Who we are

While the notion of wellness has been around for a while, in recent years, we have seen a significant shift – as more than ever, people are looking to take a more proactive role in managing their overall wellness. In particular, the incoming generation of employees have come to expect their employer to provide resources and programs centred on overall well-being and wellness.

Wellness programs need to become more than just a checkbox on a list of services – studies have proven that organizations with robust wellness programs have higher levels of engagement and garner strong returns – allowing employers to quickly identify areas of importance for their employees and proactively address any critical issues.

Founded by Susanne Cookson and Cynthia Hastings-James in 2010, BestLifeRewarded Innovations mission was to advance a “coordinated assault” to improve the health of Canadians. Over a decade later, BestLifeRewarded is not only achieving its mission in Canada, it now also services international organizations.
