Workplace culture wellness program aims to reduce ‘Great Resignation’
By Holly Fisher
Their mission is to share their culture wellness vision with organizations around the globe that are ready to invest in their most valuable asset: their people.
In the last year, millions of Americans have quit their jobs, many of them seeking better opportunities or even striking out on their own. As a result, companies are reinvesting in employee retention strategies. And a new program birthed in Charleston just might be the solution.
Dr. Troy Hall, author of “Cohesion Culture: Principles to Retain Your Top Talent,” teamed up with Ben-Jamin Toy, founder of the team building company, On Purpose Adventures, to establish the trademarked Cohesion Culture program. Their mission is to share their culture wellness vision with organizations around the globe that are ready to invest in their most valuable asset: their people.
“Culture is the pulse of what the organization is doing,” Hall said. “It’s what gives employees a sense of belonging, makes them feel valued and indicates a shared mutual commitment. But building that kind of culture requires more than a big salary and a benefits package. It takes intention.”

In his book, Hall outlines the best practices and methodologies to help organizations create a place where people find purpose and pursue their passion. Businesses can take this work a step further with the Cohesion Culture program. Building on the principles in Hall’s book, it’s an online course with five modules of leader training, hands-on activities, workbook exercises and weekly challenges.
Toy has worked with organizations around the world to create purposeful, unconventional, and effective team building. When Hall witnessed one of the On Purpose Adventures programs, the alignment between the two organizations was obvious. Blending team building programs with the strategic framework of Cohesion Culture has resulted in timely and effective programs for a variety of businesses.
“Cohesion Culture conveys the critical message to employees that they truly matter, and that they’re so much more than a cog in the machine,” Toy said. “This individual connection is critical in forming a team that feels valued, in turn evoking a sense of belonging and dedication.”
Launched less than a year ago, the Cohesion Culture program is already garnering national attention.

Kudos, a global recognition platform serving businesses in more than 80 countries, named United Bay Community Credit Union (Ubay) a “Best Culture Leader.” Ubay, a mid-sized financial cooperative operating in Michigan, began implementing Cohesion Culture strategy just nine months ago.
Diane Abbonizio, president and CEO of Ubay, spoke to the surprisingly quick efficiency of the program, but also commended its straightforward, effortless structure. “Cohesion Culture guides staff development for both new and tenured employees on a journey of self-discovery, relationship-building, and fun,” she said. “The course is easy to follow, and the time investment is minimal when compared to the results you will begin to see from day one.”
