The LifeBalance Program Team Up for Employee Well-Being and Happiness



PORTLAND, OREGON, March 2019 — The LifeBalance Program and Cascade Centers have partnered up to provide health, happiness, and savings to Cascade clients and their employees. Beginning March 1, 2019, the approximate 90,000 employees serviced by Cascade will have access to the LifeBalance Program's exclusive network of recreational, cultural, well–being, and travel savings.

“LifeBalance is just a great benefit to provide for our members,” said Cascade Centers Vice President Anthony Brown. “Our goal is to improve quality of life for employees, and with all of the discounts on well–being and healthy recreation available through LifeBalance, it's just a natural fit. This partnership also helps us decrease the stigma associated with using the EAP, increases overall engagement, and provides an additional recruitment and retention tool for our customers.”

LifeBalance Co–Founder Dave Miller agreed. “Our goals and Cascade's are so well–aligned. We want to connect all of our members to the experiences that help them reduce stress, stay active, and enjoy life. We're thrilled to support Cascade and its clients in their efforts to foster healthy, happy employees.”

The partnership, finalized in late December 2018, capped off a year of unprecedented growth for the LifeBalance Program. Over the last 12 months, LifeBalance has expanded to provide its services to Health Alliance Medical Plans in Illinois, FirstCare Health Plans in Texas, and Community Health Options in Maine. “We feel so fortunate to have had an amazing year of partnering with organizations that share our vision and values,” said Miller.

The LifeBalance platform includes thousands of savings options at local, regional, and nationally–recognizable businesses, all of which will be available to Cascade's clients and employees come March. Miller believes the comprehensive nature of the LifeBalance discount network, along with its local focus, has fueled the company's growth and will provide outstanding value to Cascade and its clients.

“We know the employees that Cascade services will be thrilled to see savings with national partners like LA Fitness and Regal,” Miller said.  “But we also think they'll be delighted by the savings we offer at hundreds of small, locally owned businesses in their areas. From trying a class at their local yoga studio to getting a treatment at the spa around the corner to taking the kids to the children's museum, these employees can live well while supporting the businesses in their communities. Meanwhile, Cascade and its clients can rest well knowing they've invested in a program that's customized, relevant, and meaningful for their populations.”
