Craig Schmidt, Senior Wellness Consultant, EPIC
Passionate about wellness at a personal level, Craig Schmidt is an avid runner who practices what he preaches when it comes to living well. He leads EPIC’s wellness team to deliver a wealth of customized resources to clients each month.
Schmidt managed the rebranding of the company’s wellness newsletters and the creation of EPIC’s wellness playbook while turning wellness from a reactive process for employers into an integrated part of their overall benefit packages.
“When you have some companies and groups saying, ‘I want to do wellness. Let’s do a biometric screening, let’s do a walking challenge. Now tell me what I impacted.’ I have to say, ‘Well, you’ve impacted next to nothing,’” Schmidt says. “But, if you add those companies that are really looking to make policy change, enhancements to the culture, changes to the environment, add some support resources, really adjust and change their benefit package in a way that can empower individuals to work the health system; that’s when you really start seeing the successes.”
