    S3E22 - Maxwell: Retaining Talented People through Finding Balance and Joy

    S3E22 - Maxwell: Retaining Talented People through Finding Balance and Joy

    Backed by decades of experience producing exceptional clinical outcomes, Kintinu Telerehab connects recovery to everyday life. In this podcast, we explore hot topics in rehabilitation, the keys to personal growth and recovery, and how to apply it all to the real-world.

    In this episode of Kintinu’d Conversations, Brad Dexter sits down with Stephen Enke of Maxwell and Kiley Armitage of QLI. Stephen co-founded Maxwell with Adriana Cisneros Basulto because they are obsessed with creating better workplaces for healthcare workers, and unlocking human potential. Kiley is QLI's Director of Operations and initially helped establish a relationship with Maxwell to bring their unique style of employee focused and employee driven benefits to QLI.

    Maxwell recently won an international competition through SHRM that aims to bridge the gap between companies that are creating workplace technologies and the end users of their products: HR professionals and their workforces. Adriana had this to say after winning the award:

    "Maxwell helps employers retain employees by bringing them balance and joy and delivering the employee value proposition that HR teams have worked hard to build. Employees receive a monthly budget to use how they choose to balance life/work via our technology. With their attention captured, Maxwell makes it easy to elevate traditional benefits; present important information you don't want your employees to miss; create connection; and capture employee data like demographics, levels of productivity and stress, so employers can make better decisions."
    Cisneros Basulto added that there is a growing work/life imbalance worldwide. "There are talent segments and industries like health care that are struggling with burnout and a lack of balance. We know that when employees feel valued by their employer and are able to recharge, they are better at their jobs. However, what helps someone balance and feel valued is uniquely personal. Maxwell helps employers meet the diversity of needs their employees have to find balance."

    Join us for a fun conversation about how Maxwell has impacted QLI's team and how they are helping other companies value their employees.
