The motto of Employee Health Matters, LLC is “Adding Employee Health into the Profit Equation”.
His personal mantra has long been “There is nothing more fundamental or more elemental than the responsibility for one’s own health.” Mr. Bollier is a Connecticut native. His wife serves as an Assistant Attorney General in the state, and they have two teenage children.
