Personal Best® Launches New Release of Wellness e-Library with Free Webinar Offer

Birmingham, AL — Personal Best®, a division of Oakstone®, and an award-winning wellness industry leader in the U.S. and Canada for more than 25 years, announces the new release of the Wellness e-library, an online package of engaging wellness resources vetted by credentialed experts.

The new release boasts several added features, including a search function that allows customers to access and download specific wellness topics among newsletter articles and product titles within their Wellness e-library. Another new feature includes improved product navigation of the electronic brochures and posters. Finally, the interactive Smart Moves self-assessment toolkit — the supplemental online resource included with most Personal Best® newsletters — is now easily accessible from the main landing page of the Wellness e-library.

The features of the new release work together to create a robust and convenient user experience and were developed as a result of customer feedback we gathered after introducing the Wellness e-library one year ago.

“The e-library has been a great resource for our wellness initiative. People want simple, quick-to-read, credible information on how to live healthier. The articles and materials in the Wellness e-library have provided that and saved my team a significant amount of time.” — Marketing Manager of a large hospital system.

Personal Best® is offering customers and prospective buyers a chance to attend a free webinar featuring a live, interactive tour of the Wellness e-library new release. This free webinar allows organizations of any size to see how easy it is to promote workplace wellness and improve the health and productivity of their workforce.

The Wellness e-library from Personal Best® is the only wellness tool on the market that provides a full library of wellness resources for download in an easy-to-navigate and searchable online format, making it simple and cost-effective for businesses to boost engagement within any wellness program.

Each month, the Wellness e-library updates automatically, while users access more than 1,500 articles covering a variety of wellness topics, including the top three topics today:  stress, nutrition and fitness. The online portal allows employees and dependents to access their resources 24/7, from work and at home. Users also can download and print electronic newsletters, posters and brochures at their convenience.

A four-year study conducted by health insurer Highmark indicates that investing in health and wellness programs shows an average cost savings per employee of $332 per year. The most common intervention in the study was web-based health information and coaching. The web-based Wellness e-library is a practical, convenient solution for organizations of any size to motivate their employees and clients to lead healthier lifestyles — at a fraction of the cost of purchasing individual resources.
