It’s official! Walgreens broke a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® title.
Thanks to thousands of participants around the world, Walgreens now holds the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for most views for an online guided meditation video in 24 hours on a bespoke platform.
“Collaborating with Journey LIVE to share the power of meditation with so many people was the perfect ending to Mental Health Awareness Month,” says Holly May, Executive Vice President & Global Chief Human Resources Officer, Walgreens Boots Alliance. “It brought attention to a valuable mental health practice and reinforced our ongoing commitment to the health and wellbeing of our team as well as the communities we serve.”

A benefit to U.S. team members, WBA’s mental health and wellbeing platform Be Well Connected takes a three-pronged approach: the Journey LIVE platform, IndieFlix and the Life365 Employee Assistance Program with CuraLinc Healthcare.

The company recently expanded the platform, including partnering with Journey to offer the platform to anyone in its team members’ ecosystems who could benefit from these resources. Be Well Connected is one of the many efforts that contributed to Walgreens certification from Mental Health America that recognizes employers committed to improving mental health within the workplace.
