Building a positive company culture is an integral part of business. It not only attracts and retains long-tenured employees, but it also makes for a more positive and supportive workplace. Elevation Corporate Health, founded by Tom Kapp and Sandy Meagher, are celebrating their 25th year of being in business due to creating a positive workplace. In this article, we will showcase the many ways Elevation invests in their people to create a great company culture.
Fun Fact: 10.7% of our Elevation employees exceed over 10 years of working for the company!
One of the reasons why employees become long-tenured employees is because of the ongoing training and education that they can receive. Sara Baker, the Director of Training & Education, has created educational programs to incentivize employees to continue learning in their field and become leaders in the industry. Here are a few programs that Elevation has created:

As a personal trainer, Pete specializes in general conditioning, strength, speed & agility, weight loss, building muscle, and over training prevention.

As a company, Elevation Corporate Health has had a strong grip working with many different client sectors, with residential communities being their fastest growing market. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that communities are looking to find ways to engage millennials while keeping our aging population social and active.
For years, communities have been equipping their amenity features with an onsite fitness center. However, that’s no longer enough with people wanting more bang for their buck.
Now, active aging clients want a full service fitness center including group fitness classes, personal training options, wellness and incentive programming, social fitness, and towel service.
“Residential communities are challenged to compete with the boutique fitness centers model of getting a really great workout in a short amount of time,” stated Angie Nichols, Partner and SVP of Elevation Corporate Health.
