Because People Matter

Why Does Workedge Exist?

If you believe that your employees are tools and can be replaced at will, exit this website now because you will find it a waste of your time. However, if you believe that your employees are human beings, who as of yet have not reached their full potential, then please read on.

Our Founding Fathers had an interesting way of looking at people, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator…” People have been endowed by their Creator. Each human being holds a special dignity, and it is consistent with our American ideals to say that every individual has the right to become the person whom he or she has been created to be. Our ideals hold that people are important. WorkEdge exists… because people matter.



Your employees matter. Chances are, your workers will be spending almost a third of their adult lives on the job. That is a lot of time, and one must not waste it.

Your employees are either working at the job for which they were created, or they are in the process of becoming the people to do the job for which they were created. We at WorkEdge want to help. To repeat: we want to help your employees become who they were made to be. In doing so, we want to help your business fulfill its purpose.

If we can help them your employees reduce their absenteeism, psychological and medical treatments, and the costs associated with drug and alcohol abuse, and we can help help your workers excel, then your company’s expenses will decrease and productivity will increase. Not only do we believe this will prove fulfilling to you, we are convicted it will help your business earn higher profits.

From Our Founder

What We Seek to Do

We at WorkEdge recognize that human beings consist of components, which are physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. One element can impact another… or all of the rest. A poor diet can make a person feel tired and lethargic. A proper mental attitude can drive a person to astounding physical achievements. Ignoring one’s spiritual life can lead to addictive behavior. The combinations and consequences are endless.

WorkEdge seeks to inspire and support an employee in every facet of life. We seek to address the needs of the whole person, on and off the job, thereby maximizing productivity for the employer and for the individual.

I have known Dr. Edge for seven years. He has a compassionate heart for people and their emotional and physical well being. The teaching profession needs the services that his firm provides. Educators are under immense pressure from increased workloads. Having someone like Dr. Edge would help teachers to manage the stress in a healthy way.

Mark Edge is an excellent orator, who captures one’s attention from the beginning through an outstanding use of humor and personal stories. His messages are sincere, heart-felt, vital, timeless and enjoyable. I give Mark a Five Star ranking!
Mikel Faulkner

Bethesda Health Clinic has work with Mark Edge and the Work Edge teamfor several months now. Mark has helped our team achieve more by engaging in interactive and challenging talks during our staff meeting.

The WorkEdge team has also been providing chaplaincy services for our staff and have helped several members walk through some very difficult team. Their team has been able to interact with our staff and keep them emotionally stable in ways we as a staff could never do.

John English, MD

CEO, Bethesda Health Clinic

Mark’s gifts for humor and storytelling, remind us of the importance of valuing others for who they are as individuals with unique gifts and abilities. In today’s world of technology driven relationships, it’s a lesson of love and respect that we need to hear again and again!

Jay Oliver

President, Rose Point Capital Advisor

Wow! Steady and stable are the two words that best describe Mark Edge. Visualize Mark at the top of “life’s” mountain holding the safety rope and giving encouragement to others struggling to make that difficult climb to the summit. I encourage everyone to take this opportunity to enlist Mark’s skills as he shares better ways to enhance the future of your organization with a healthier, happier, and more optimistic attitude.
Leonard Kent

Superintendent, Retired, Fort Stockton ISD

Mark has a natural ability to connect with people, and he is sincerely interested in getting to know their interests, needs and wants. He is trustworthy and empathetic, making him an excellent confidant, encourager, and consoler. He had served in all of these roles for many of my family and friends. These qualities make him perfectly suited for this unique position within any group, large or small.

Last summer during our teacher inservice, Mark Edge was brought in to lead our staff through a team building session. Mark far exceeded our expectations. He took our staff through an experience of laughter and even a few tears on their journey toward a better understanding of the primary mission, our students. The staff gave Mark outstanding reviews and we look forward to bringing him back to work with us in the future.
