We're Researchers, Teachers and Dreamers  

At Brio, we dream big, aspiring to change how people around the world work. Science tells us that by investing in employee well-being, our businesses are more profitable. Our hearts tell us that through building people up, we can change the world for the better - one organization at a time.

Our Mission

We love people! Even more so, we love helping people flourish. That core value has led us to invest hundreds of hours in researching the best policies and practices for creating a greater sense of resilience and well-being within workplaces. In a world where time is limited and energy is often drained, Brio is committed to teaching simple, science-based skills that enable people to flourish at work and home.

Our Name

Brio is an Italian word - meaning vitality and vigor - two qualities that drive higher levels of resilience, engagement and well-being. While most of us wish we could add more hours to our days, our experts at Brio teach time-tested techniques to help you add more life - more vitality and vigor - to your hours.

Our Approach

We specialize in offering evidence-based practices and policies promoting personal and professional flourishing. Combining neuroscience with positive psychology and mindfulness techniques, our team has designed a unique approach to workplace well-being - the ARC+ Method — which is the basis of our coaching and teaching efforts.

While science is at the heart of what we do, the most essential part of what we offer is teaching our clients how to practically apply our techniques in their everyday lives — helping them to better manage stressors and perform at their best.
