About Us

Achieve Excellence.
We can help you get there.

Failing to recognize the impact of health on performance can put an organization at risk. As a wellness initiative, we help organizations create sustainable, supportive, and healthy cultures.

We are rethinking health in the workplace and igniting positive lifestyles at work, at home, and in our communities. By identifying five elements that have the greatest impact on well-being within healthy, high-performing organizations and individuals, we enable organizations to improve performance and well-being.

Here’s how we get you going.

We’re not afraid to be different. In fact, we’re wildly unlike traditional wellness programs. Our Thrive-in-Five process addresses the key areas organizations need in order to be successful.

We provide innovative solutions tailored for your organization when you join the movement. We offer resources developed alongside business leaders and workplace practitioners to empower you throughout the process.

Happier, healthier, and more productive employees support the growth of the organizations we work with.

Wellness is embedded in our DNA.

Dakota Medical Foundation (DMF) is comprised of a family of initiatives developed to dramatically improve the health and quality of life in the community.

DMF was formed in the 1960s by pioneering physicians and community leaders with the vision to build a progressive new hospital in Fargo, North Dakota. In 1964, the hospital opened and became renowned for its remarkable treatment capabilities and dedicated physicians who cared deeply about patient care and innovation.

In 1994, the hospital was sold to a for-profit organization, and the proceeds began the $94 million endowment for DMF to begin grant making to health-related nonprofits in 1996.

Since inception, DMF has invested more than $93 million to operate health initiatives and fund strategies to multiply the results in North Dakota and Western Minnesota. P5 Performance™ has been developed as one of those initiatives.

Together with Dakota Medical Foundation, we are dedicated to building sustainable workplace cultures and wellness.
