Nathan Adelson Hospice kicked off a new program focusing on employee wellness this week, provided by Zura Health. The unique new digital coaching system integrates all aspects of health and wellness and is designed to help encourage healthier lifestyles.
Sixteen NAH employees will complete the 16-week digital course that features knowledge, tools and exercises for complete well-being. Comprised of four key phases — Empower, Enlighten, Elevate and Evolve — the program covers nutrition and fitness fundamentals, mental and emotional well-being, stress management and self-care, and also explores relationships and life purpose.
Zura Health has its roots in Las Vegas, with entrepreneurs and founders Jessica and Kylie McBeath coming from a background in both Western and Eastern medicine. The two have combined both approaches to create a holistic journey to wholeness.
With productivity losses linked to absenteeism and medical leave costing employers $225.8 billion annually in the U.S., and 30 percent of Americans stating that they are always or often under stress at work, poor productivity and stress-related illnesses such as anxiety, obesity, insomnia and a weaker immune system, are a concern for employers.
“We are excited to offer our employees a chance to participate in this unique program,” said Nathan Adelson Hospice President and CEO Carole Fisher. “The health and wellness of our employees is of the utmost importance to us.”
Details about the 16-week course and the entire Zura Health platform are available at www.zurahealth.com.
