To further assist with mental health, they made the Calm Premium app available to Business Employee Resource Group (BERG) members with an adoption rate last year of 44.5% and 71.9% engagement. BERGs include ten diverse groups committed to creating an environment that supports every employee who makes up our diverse and inclusive culture by cultivating a place where each person can be their authentic self, a place where they belong. The BERGs contribute to the varying dimensions of wellness by hosting guest speakers, coordinating events, as well as giving back to the surrounding community with charitable acts and donations.

“At ADT, we know the importance of supporting the health and well-being of our employees. Through our well-being program, ADT Balance, we’ve done an exceptional job in empowering our team members and our organization to achieve physical wellness, strengthen mental resilience, and foster emotional balance. Healthy employees are more productive and engaged in their wellness journey and are instrumental in fostering our company culture of holistic health that encompasses the eight dimensions of well-being. The response and feedback to the programs we’ve spearheaded affirm we are making a difference in people’s lives.
