Raleigh, N.C. (December 23, 2019) – Workplace Options, a leading global provider of wellbeing support programs and employee effectiveness services, today announced an initiative in development. The Wellness Center is a new, co-working business space designed for counselors and coaches in private practice.  In addition to providing counseling, work-life, and wellness resources on a global scale, Workplace Options is also committed to helping the local community in Raleigh, where the organization has been based since its inception in 1982.

Located at 2900 Highwoods Boulevard in Raleigh, the Wellness Center will provide participating counselors and coaches with private office space, as well as access to group counseling space.

“Workplace Options has a long history of serving our local community, including partnering with organizations like Triangle Family Services, LGBT Center of Raleigh, and Children’s Home Society of NC,” shares Alan King, President and Chief Executive Officer at Workplace Options. “What excites us most about this new venture is the opportunity to share our core business strengths, counseling and coaching, with our neighbors in need of support.”

Use of the Wellness Center, along with reception and scheduling services, will be provided rent free for counselors and coaches who join Workplace Options Global Counseling team on a part-time basis (minimum of 20 hours per week).  Participants will also be asked to contribute 12 hours per quarter to pro bono counseling work to benefit the community.

“We recognize that there are a lot of talented individuals who would like to work in a structured setting but are unwilling or unable to give up their private practice work. The Wellness Center gives them the opportunity to work for a world-class employee wellbeing services provider, and to get access to premium space and support services for their own private practices,” says King.

Dr. Kennette Thigpen, MSW, LCSW, Vice President of Clinical Crisis and Specialty Services for Workplace Options adds, “This is a unique opportunity for counselors and coaches who are interested in building their private practice. Not only can the Wellness Center help them reach their professional goals, it also gives us an opportunity to meet an important need in the community. It truly is a win-win for everyone involved.”
