The Rise of Wellness Programs
There is a new era of health and wellness exploding. From healthy eating and active lifestyles to mental health and spiritual practices, the way people prioritize their overall well-being has definitely changed. People apply their desire for an overall healthy lifestyle when deciding on a job. Employers have noticed this cultural and social change and are taking action. Companies like Hyatt, Hilton, Google, and many others, have implemented wellness programs into their workplaces to help promote a healthy mind, body, and soul. Take Hilton’s new Thrive@Hiltonpartnership with Thrive Global as a prime example which concentrates on mind, body, and spirit.
Wellness programs stretched across all industries improve company culture and include a wide range of perks from free gym memberships, healthy meal options, yoga classes, guitar lessons, nap rooms, walking tracks, meditation classes, and a variety of educational courses. Companies are also offering travel incentives to suit the growing desire that people have to travel more.
The Importance of Travel
The power that travel has on a person’s mind, life, and soul is undeniable. People turn to travel for different reasons ranging from relieving stress, healing the mind after a hard breakup or a traumatic life event, to soul-search, to challenge one’s self and seek adventure, to meet new and interesting people, to build stronger relationships, or to find your life purpose. There has been a huge surge in remote work and the internet is making it easier to have the digital nomad lifestyle. Employees are even quitting their jobs, despite the salary amount, to travel the world.
