(OPENPRESS) November 28, 2011 -- Le Meridien Amman recently concluded the "Healthy Living" campaign, which aimed at encouraging associates to maintain a healthy life-style and geared towards ensuring their physical and psychological well-being.
The one-week campaign placed great emphasis on associates assuming more responsibility for their own health, by raising awareness of the resources available to them on the property, such as the hotel doctor, Le Meridien Amman Health Club and Spa and the healthy meals available at the staff cafeteria.
During the "Healthy Living" week, the hotel doctor gave seminars on the importance of a well-balanced nutrition, ways to prevent and control some diseases, measured the associates' blood pressure, sugar level, and monitored their weight. The activities from Le Meridien Amman Health Club and Spa included training sessions on stretching exercises most suitable for office work, best practices on handling heavy items, and daily health tips sent by email as well as posted on Facebook. The Human Resources department, in cooperation with the Kitchen served simple, healthy yet delicious meals in the staff cafeteria.
Le Meridien Amman's Doctor; Dowaina Shawareb commented on this initiative by saying: "The well-being of our associates is a persistent responsibility that we assume earnestly. A healthy life-style entails energetic associates with positive attitudes; tributes that we cherish at the property and are committed to delivering to our guests."
