Execs at HEI Hotels & Resorts hope to convince at least 3,000 employees to make voluntary commitments to action to improve their own health.
A companywide survey revealed that 86% of associates are willing to change their lifestyles to improve their health.
To give them a push, the Norwalk, Conn.-based chain of 42 hotels and corporate offices has ramped up itsfor 2012 by promoting its 24/7 , which can help with addiction, sleep disorders, stress, mental health issues, adoptions and divorce counseling. The program offers lifestyle programs, like online smoking-cessation and weight-loss coaching, and a free, online health risk assessment, available to all employees—even those not enrolled in the corporate health plan.
Over the past two years, HEI increased its focus on preventive wellness and screenings, and 95% of employees participated in a health risk assessment. The result: 39% of higher-risk employees took action to lower their risk rating.
