NEHRA's Webinar Series:

The Overlooked Key to Better Employee Performance and Engagement: A Healthy Gut

Presented by Ixcela 



We all want our teams to thrive and perform their best...but what if there’s an underlying issue that is sabotaging external efforts to train, cultivate, and help unlock employees’ full potential? And what if the path to building better employee performance and engagement needed support and assessment on the inside as much as outside? Join biochemist, CEO, and co-founder of one of the hottest health and wellness spaces as she explores why traditional corporate wellness programs may not be enough, why going to the source (the gut) matters, and how offering gut microbiome testing can promote sustainable performance and happiness at work.


Erika Angle, Ph.D., CEO and Co-founder of Ixcela

 Erika Angle is the CEO and Co-founder of Ixcela, a biotech company that tests the gut microbiome of working professionals and elite athletes to optimize performance.
