Troy Remy has spent over 30 years in the human resources management space, and is now leading benefits and wellness administration at Canal Barge, one of the largest lube oil transportation companies in the world. In line with the progressive, climate-friendly mission of the marine transportation company, Troy has prioritized a progressive benefits management strategy for his employee population, which has been disproportionately affected by diabetes. His people-first approach started with listening closely to the unique needs of his population. From there, he's built trusted relationships with his members, and introduced them to Virta's diabetes reversal treatment that snowballed to impact hundreds of members’ lives.
"If you're looking to address employee productivity and secondarily cost, having employees engage with Virta has demonstrated to me that we're putting people first by addressing their health… this is truly putting employees first.”
