As the first specialty benefits corporation and longtime wellness leader, ACI makes employee health and well-being a priority.  “The investment in wellness has certainly paid off at ACI as employees have lost hundreds of pounds during Biggest Loser competitions, reported less stress after attending ACI’s free yoga classes, and stay committed because they appreciate the working environment ACI has created,” explains Dr. Ann Clark, CEO of ACI Specialty Benefits.

ACI has been helping clients create healthier workforces and reduce healthcare costs with its award-winning wellness program since 2005.  ACI has also recently unveiled their new CORE wellness platform that gives employees easy access to online tracking tools, health coaching, and personalized information to make getting healthy easy.

Located in the heart of Sorrento Valley, ACI’s headquarters includes an on-site fully-equipped Yoga and Pilates studio, with free weekly Yoga, Pilates and Zumba classes.  ACI employees also enjoy regular breaks in the onsite “zen room” complete with massage chair, relaxing music, and lavender eye bags.

ACI Specialty Benefits has conducted hugely successful all-employee wellness challenges from the “Biggest Loser Challenge” to the “Wellness Warriors,” and is currently in the midst of a six-week long company-wide wellness challenge using the CORE wellness online platform.  A number of employees have achieved double-digit weight loss goals, quit smoking, and started exercising as a result of ACI’s workplace wellness initiatives.
