CDM Smith’s wellness program, in partnership with Virgin Pulse, is an incentive-based, holistic program designed to engage participants to adopt and continue behaviors to improve their wellbeing. A unique feature of the plan is a charity incentive, with employees voting on the charities to support.

“I’m proud to contribute to a wellness program that is aligned with CDM Smith’s mission of caring for our employees and giving back to the communities we serve,” says Susan Glover, CDM Smith Benefits and Wellness Manager, who accepted the award on behalf of the firm. “Our program challenges participants to live well and garner enough points to enable the firm to contribute $50,000 per quarter to various charities. Together, employees active in the program and our executive team choose the charities.”
