Thrive’s mission is to empower you and enhance your well-being. Thrive revolves around eight components of wellness: physical, emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual, occupational, social and spiritual. We feel these dimensions are interconnected and strive to provide you with opportunities to improve your overall well-being. Our program is comprehensive and includes a variety of education, activities and challenges for employees as well as their families. In the next year, we will focus on each component for this blog.
