Breckenridge, CO (November 6, 2015) — In an ongoing effort to promote employee well-being, Breckenridge Grand Vacations (BGV) held its Fourth Annual Wellness Fair at the Beaver Run Resort and Conference Center on Wednesday, October 28th.
This event offers all BGV personnel access to free comprehensive health screenings, complete bloodwork evaluations, health risk assessments, flu shots and resources from over a dozen healthrelated local vendors. Families of staff are also able to take advantage of these services at significantly discounted rates. BGV sponsors this event in hopes that employees will maintain healthy lifestyles and will be better equipped to advocate for their healthcare. The education provided by vendors paired with the results of the screenings serve as tools to help identify, prevent and treat potential health risks in a proactive manner.
This year, the fair yielded an impressive total of 296 attendees, 282 of which took advantage of the health and blood screenings. Of those in attendance, 158 participants received a free flu shot. This event was made possible by the BGV Wellness Committee, 14 volunteers, Beaver Run Resort, and 16 vendors. All expenses from the Wellness Fair were paid by the BGV Owners/Developers in order to make all services costless to employees.
“I look forward to the Wellness Fair every year and enjoy visiting the vendors, but most importantly, I love that BGV gives us the opportunity to get a full blood screening at work,” said Jenna Duncan, Marketing Operations Manager and Wellness Committee Member for BGV. “I am very grateful to be employed by a company that cares so much about my health and wellness.”
Vendor booths present at the Wellness Fair included: BGV Sustainability, Blue Lotus Yoga Studio, doTERRA Essential Oils, AXIS Sports Medicine, MindSprings Health, Summit Community Care Clinic Medical and Dental Services, St. Anthony Medical Center, Fidelity Investments, Silverthorne Rec Center, Family Intercultural Resource Center, Whole Life Nutrition, Bristlecone Health Services, High Country Healthcare, Colorado State Patrol, Advocates for Victims of Assault and Strategies Capital Management. Each booth provided information on their services and many engaged participants through interactive exercises.
As an incentive for participation, all BGV employees who attend the event, complete the in-person health screening and finalize an online health risk assessment are awarded $100 in wellness money that can be used towards any health and wellness related activities including but not limited to rec center passes, gym memberships, ski passes or yoga memberships. Additionally, BGV awarded participants with a chance to win raffle prizes provided by the vendors and by BGV amenities. These incentives, prizes, healthcare resources, flu shots, bloodwork evaluations and health assessments demonstrate BGV’s commitment to employees and their families, as well as a strong dedication to the overall well-being of the Breckenridge community.
