What people are saying
Simple Change is an important strategic partner to Rise Against Hunger as we evolve from being a US-driven organization to operating as a global organization. Certainly not simple, this initiative required strategy, alignment and execution among stakeholders from six countries. Simple Change facilitated the strategic development of our vision through outstanding engagement of everyone involved and has helped us maintain energy and focus on the project over nearly two years. From an execution standpoint, Simple Change has helped us develop and implement the plan while keeping our team focused on producing the required deliverables. A project of this scale has required great flexibility, which Simple Change has exhibited by adapting processes and ensuring that the approach fits our organizational culture and capacity. Beyond the results, Becky Jacobs is one of the smartest people I know, and working with her is a delight.
Our company has partnered with Simple Change for almost one year. I reached out to Becky with several goals- to help our company execute a holistic wellness program for our 70+ employees, using the latest and greatest in workplace wellness best practices and within our outlined budget. Becky and her Simple Change team have met and exceeded our goals by introducing financial wellness tools, quarterly chair massage and gentle yoga classes, monthly healthy snack and a myriad of other programs. Becky’s wellness philosophy is to introduce those small and simple behaviors that hopefully aggregate over time into all-around healthy behaviors that are constant and long-lasting. I appreciate this approach to wellness over the old-school method of lunch and learns and biometric screenings. Becky works with me to review the program outcome and make recommendations to increase engagement. As a result, our employees are very satisfied with the programs offered and I’m grateful to have a business partner who executes on our behalf allowing me to focus on other strategic HR programs and objectives.
I was looking to create a healthy culture at our company and Simple Change Wellness has helped us immensely with this effort. Becky and the team focus on the key wellness priorities that allow your teams to make healthier choices around nutrition. They also share techniques to incorporate simple exercises and lifestyle choices for increased strength and productivity. Becky will evaluate your needs and develop the program specific to your company. The experience is educational and fun.
We enjoyed having Becky provide the keynote address for our yearly client continuing education event- she was incredibly easy to work with throughout the process, proactively engaging with us about what was needed so she could tweak her messaging accordingly. Her well-organized presentation really resonated with our audience, who appreciated her practical takeaway strategies for improvement.
I just wanted to let you know that you were a bucket list item or a dream realized for me this year.
I have been wanting to do the ‘nutritionist’ thing forever and I am so glad we did it as a company. You have given me a new lease on life (and on my body!)
You and Katherine are true professionals!
SimpleChange is not a typical wellness consultant with a list of programs. Becky quickly assessed what already mattered to us, then made it better. Our staff and our many seminar guests are now enjoying the “fruit”of her guidance, and her solid equipment and inventory recommendations!
Working with Simple Change Wellness has been great for my company. We had been searching for a wellness program that was the right fit for our size company and Simple Change is just right for us. They built a custom program specifically for our needs. They asked about our goals (programmatically) and then they measure back to them. The sessions are informative, realistic and fun. We have had great participation within our company and the feedback from our staff is very positive. The program lives up to all that was promised to us – simple changes can make big differences in our overall health.
Becky – and her capable team – with Simple Change Wellness are really helping shape the way our staff looks at nutrition and health. Her sessions are packed full of practical tips that we can implement in our work lives – and then apply at home with our families. And the changes we are making really are simple. Who knew there was so much hidden sugar in foods? We’re reading labels. We’re taking stretch breaks. We’re encouraging one another and holding each other accountable for better health, one day at a time.
Becky did an outstanding job connecting with the audience. But what was truly impactful was her authentic style coupled with content that was simple yet compelling. I know for a fact that people left the event inspired and ready to make important and powerful changes in the way they live their lives.
Becky was able to connect with our staff and do an assessment that was faster and more valuable than we would have been able to do ourselves. She got to know our organization at all levels, and she even read the book that describes our management operating system so she could use our terminology and make recommendations that fit within our management strategy. Becky and her team gave us quick wins that we could implement right away and longer-term projects that will help us to continue building employee engagement and wellbeing over time. She’s made it easy for us to be successful, and continues to proactively send us information that help us make decisions as we grow.
Becky’s presentation taught everyone in the audience, from business owners to managers to new associates, the importance of wellbeing in the workplace. The statistics in her presentation are eye-opening, and the strategies for implementing a wellbeing program are very unique. If you are looking for a speaker on wellbeing in the workplace or need help implementing a wellbeing strategy for your business, we strongly recommend you connect with Becky!
I’m standing a lot more throughout the day, parking further away, and taking moments to walk away from my computer and do a couple laps.
With kids and life and work, I had every excuse not to exercise, but this program has shown me how easy it is if I make the effort to move more throughout the day.
Becky has made a huge, positive impact on us. We changed how we snack and added ways to burn calories while at work. And we have bonded together because it feels like we are all on a team working toward a common goal with Becky as our leader.
This has been an eye-opening experience. Not only was I shocked to realize just how much I had been sitting throughout the day, but I was pleasantly surprised by how easy—and tasty—it was to improve what I ate and drank at work, too.
