Hosts Global introduces the Hosts Has Health companywide wellness program for all employees in an effort to promote a healthy lifestyle companywide. Hosts is pushing their corporate culture of happiness to the limit, along with one of their core values: Heart- Open it. Share it. Make a difference.
To jump start their health initiative, Hosts Global is gifting a Fitbit Zip to each team member, along with a wellness package to help encourage overall health and wellness. At Hosts the belief is that establishing ongoing wellness will keep the hearts of the company strong and happy. To show that fun can fit hand in hand with health, Hosts Global will hold a series of competitions and health challenges that employees can join. The Fitbit tool and its dashboards will be utilized to evaluate progress and to select the winners of each contest.
Jennifer Patino, DMCP, CEO of Hosts Global, comments, “This initiative is very important to us as a company. Our number one priority is our employees, and we strive to do what is best for them and their families to keep them happy and healthy. Encouraging a lifestyle of wellness is something that we embrace whole heartedly.”
The Hosts Has Health wellness program will launch on April 1st in conjunction with the American Heart Association’s (AHA) National Walking Day. AHA’s mission of building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke is fully supported by Hosts Global. Established in 2007, AHA’s National Walking Day is observed yearly on the first Wednesday of April. To support National Walking Day, Hosts Global is encouraging all employees to bring sneakers to work and walk for at least 30 minutes. “As a nation, we’re becoming more physically inactive, which increases our risk of heart disease and stroke — America’s No. 1 and No. 5 killers. The good news is that we can start to fix the problem by encouraging our community and companies, such as Hosts Global, to take part in the American Heart Association’s National Walking Day on April 1st,” remarks Gina Mann, Executive Director of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association Las Vegas Division. In addition to supporting AHA’s National Walking day, Hosts Global has also started the process of documentation to be listed as an AHA Fit-Friendly Worksite. This documentation process takes one year to complete.
The Hosts Has Health wellness program will remain a continuous offering during companywide onboarding to ensure that all employees are given the tools to achieve both their personal and professional goals. Health and Happiness – Create it. Enjoy it. Live it. Every day.
