Kerry Wekelo along with Actualize Consulting brought their entire company to New York for a weekend of culture, magic, good laughs, and team bonding. Partners Matt Seu and Chad Wekelo, both being leaders in the financial industry agree that this team building wellness perk is an investment in their people which magically effects their bottom line.

Kerry Wekelo, Director of Human Resources and Culture Infusion for Actualize Consulting says, “We want our employees to know that we don’t only care about their work, but we also care about their health and happiness.”

Utilizing the concepts of happiness, team building, and wellness from her new book and seminar, Culture Infusion: 9 Principles to Creating and Maintaining a Thriving Organizational Culture, Kerry along with Actualize Consulting brought their entire company to New York for a weekend of culture, magic, good laughs, and team bonding. Employees enjoyed team building activities at the Metropolitan Museum of Art with the help of Museum Hack, and a Taste of Magic during dinner at Ben & Jack’s Steakhouse. Kerry believes, “The extra cost for our annual retreat is an investment in our people that yields immeasurable positive results for Actualize and our clients.” Partners Matt Seu and Chad Wekelo, both being leaders in the financial industry agree that this team building wellness perk is an investment in their people which magically effects their bottom line.

Recent studies by Harvard researcher Shawn Achor bring credence to the happiness leads to success concept stating, “If we can get somebody to raise their levels of optimism or deepen their social connection or raise happiness, turns out every single business and educational outcome we know how to test for improves dramatically.” Actualize is a pioneer in the happiness arena and they have seen first-hand how this works. Their sought-after culture of wellness has translated into low attrition rates with a 3-year average being less than one percent; a testament to how a people-centric approach to creating happiness effects the bottom line of success. They are one of a few companies that offer wellness dollars to their employees. These wellness dollars have been used by individuals to pay for wellness activities like yoga class and rock climbing.

“We believe that prioritizing wellness is a cultural shift that benefits the organization as a whole with happier, healthier, and more engaged employees. We choose to make wellness a priority by including wellness perks as a significant part of our benefits package,” says Kerry Wekelo
