Prioritizing health and wellness in the workplace

Happy employees are more likely to have a positive attitude when it comes to their work, increasing productivity and the overall culture of a company. However, achieving happiness in the workplace requires businesses to invest in the wellbeing of their workforce. With an evolving approach to how and where we work and hybrid work becoming a requirement rather than a perk for employees, companies need to look at new ways to prioritize health and wellness for their workforce. One way to incorporate this into the work environment is through meetings and conferences focused on venues that offer health and wellness services. Here are four meeting and events properties who prioritize guests’ wellbeing:


Turtle Bay Resort (Oahu, Hawaii):

Visiting Turtle Bay is a wellbeing experience unto itself. With miles of sandy beaches, stargazing excursions, stand-up paddleboard lessons with dogs, traditional hula lessons, ornament decorating and so much more, Turtle Bay Resort is prioritizing the wellness of their meeting guests to ensure they leave rested, restored, and ready to face the challenges of work life once more.


Garden of the Gods (Colorado Springs, Colorado):

Time spent in nature is proven to improve brain health, stimulate creative thinking and reduce the stresses of everyday life. You don’t get much closer to nature than at Garden of the Gods. Meeting planners should also note the extensive health and wellness facilities available at the resort. With an innovative model that integrates wellness specialties and more than 20 experts under one roof, guests will leave feeling a shift in their overall health, which can transform their lives.


Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center:

A Tudor-style property set among Virginia’s gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains, Hotel Roanoke offers guests a full-service spa, private yoga and meditation classes, biking and nature trails as well as foodie tours, ticking the box for all wellbeing seekers, no matter their interest. For some team bonding, meeting planners should note a choice of scavenger hunts, which pit teams against each other in a race to find specific artifacts, photographs and locations around the hotel grounds or historic downtown Roanoke.


Skamania Lodge (Stevenson, Washington):

Just 45 minutes from Portland, Oregon’s famed Columbia River Gorge, visitors to Skamania Lodge will find inspiration in the Pacific Northwest’s natural beauty. Immersed in the tall Douglas Firs, guests will find a wide range of wellness opportunities, from the Waterleaf Spa, outdoor hot tubs, the Gorge Loop fitness trail and a highlight for many – forest bathing. The focus at the property is to assist guests in feeling re-energized and refreshed. For meeting planners, the facilities provide reassurance that their attendees will leave with a new focus on their physical and mental wellbeing.
