Idea Fair

Employee Wellness Initiative

How has this idea enhanced your club's operation, etc.?

Our staff's health and wellness is important not only to themselves, but to our club operation as well. With a focus on continued health for staff members, we have introduced an on-site employee fitness center. This center is conveniently located so all employees, no matter what their shift hours may be, may utilize the equipment in the center. This center enables employees who don't have the time or funds perhaps, to join a gym on their own, to have access to high quality equipment for their workouts. This facility, coupled with wellness initiatives, enhances our staff's well-being and overall health.

How was this idea implemented, and what have been the club members' reactions?

The program provides our employees with the ability to utilize an “Employee Only” Fitness Center with Precor, Cybex, Technogym cardio and strength equipment.

Each employee is required to complete a “Participation Survey” and “Waiver Form” prior to utilizing the Fitness Center. This form provides our Health Promotion Team with needed information about our employees goals and programing interests. We even incorporated an “Employee Incentive Program” to encourage our employees to be more involved in their overall health. We will be running contests to motivate the employees and offer rewards for our active users.

The last component of our Employee Wellness Initiative is to provide Healthy Lifestyle Programs that include: Back Injury Prevention, Weight Control/Nutrition, Stress Management and Smoking Cessation, to name a few. We added a Health and Wellness section to our Employee App that provides fitness tips and articles.
