In response to feedback from our member base, we’ve created corporate membership programs that include all the same benefits as our individual memberships, but with sliding-scale pricing for companies that want to offer memberships as a unique employee benefit. Becoming a corporate member is a unique way an organization can promote corporate wellness within their employee base and create an environment for building stronger workplace relationships. Altered Stage discounts membership fees for organizations based upon the number of employees who participate in the program.
Why use music as a source of corporate wellness programming?
According to Forbes, “disengaged employees cost U.S. companies up to $550 billion a year…high-stress levels manifested in poor physical health (fatigue, aches and pains, weight gain) and compromised mental health (depression, anxiety, anger)”. According to a study from Harvard and Stanford, “it was found that health problems stemming from job stress, like hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and decreased mental health, can lead to fatal conditions that wind up killing about 120,000 people each year—making work-related stressors and the maladies they cause, more deadly than diabetes, Alzheimer’s, or influenza”. It is in a company’s best interest to support the wellbeing and work-life-balance of their employees, not only physically but mentally as well.
Altered Stage is an innovative, holistic solution to workplace stress management that enhances productivity through fostering creativity and team building within employees. Researchers have found that learning to play a musical instrument at any age is proven to reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol while enhancing both memory capacity and spatial reasoning. It requires both sides of the brain to master an instrument, which consequently stimulates memory, time-management, confidence levels and many other skills important to the workplace. We at Altered Stage strive to provide a valuable educational experience disguised as a fun and immersive rock n’ roll adventure to help busy professionals explore the music lifestyle.
We look forward to providing you with a more personalized example of what a collaboration with Altered Stage would look like.
Providing Altered Stage memberships as a corporate wellness benefit is one of the best things we’ve done for our employees. Working together to play, write, and perform music through Altered Stage is a proven, daily stress-reliever and has brought us closer together as a team.
