MINDBODY Receives Statewide Mother-Baby Friendly Workplace Award

Company Recognized for Supporting Mothers in the Workplace

New York, NY and San Luis Obispo, CA– August 1st, 2014– MINDBODY, a leading, global provider of web and mobile business management solutions for the combined wellness and beauty industries, has been recognized by the California Breastfeeding Coalition with The Mother-Baby Friendly Workplace Award.

The Mother-Baby Friendly Workplace Award is presented to companies that support their breastfeeding employees by providing a written policy that supports breastfeeding in the workplace and by providing a private space and reasonable break time for mothers to express milk at work.

Since its founding, MINDBODY has aimed to create a positive, family friendly work environment that centers around wellness. Employees have access to onsite fitness classes, fresh produce deliveries, wellness vouchers to use at local health and wellness businesses, and opportunities to participate in the corporate wellness program, MINDBODY Evolve, which incorporates personal training and nutritional counseling.

“We’re excited to be recognized for our efforts to make MINDBODY a mother-baby friendly work environment,” said Annie Woo, Director of Customer Service at MINDBODY. “This is a direct reflection of MINDBODY’s strong emphasis on workplace wellness, which we believe should nurture the mind, body and spirit.”

MINDBODY’s Annie Woo attended the awards ceremony, where representatives from the California Breastfeeding Coalition, California Health and Human Services Agency, Senator de Leon and Assemblyman Pan were in attendance to recognize the importance of supporting breastfeeding employees.

According to the California Breastfeeding Coalition, research on the benefits to employers for supporting mothers continuing to breastfeed upon their return to work indicates a positive return on their investment with reduced absenteeism, reduced health care costs, reduced turnover and improved productivity, loyalty and more.
