Sandals La Toc Employees Benefit from 2-Day Health Symposium

The Human Resource Management of Sandals Regency La Toc Golf Resort & Spa has joined hands with the Ministry of Health, Wellness, and Human Service to deliver a Workplace Wellness Symposium to over 740 combined staff members.

The event, which took place on September 22 and 23 sought to provide health screening to the staff complement as part of an overall aim to facilitate a health and productive work environment.

Human Resource Manager for Sandals Regency La Toc Karen Brown said the move married well with her office’s continued commitment to empowering staff and enabling this massive complement to deliver and perform at their best.

“We are always cognizant of the fact that our employees lead busy lives and we like to encourage them to not only focus on their career advancement but also their health and strength. The Ministry of Health shares this vision and has graciously agreed to assist in creating the environment to promote such an ideal,” said General Manager for Sandals Regency La Toc Michael James.

Among the services afforded to the team members were Blood Pressure & Blood Glucose Testing, Calculation of Body Mass Index, Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS) Testing, Nutritional Information and Counseling, Health Education and Eye Screening by Cuban doctors.
The team members took the opportunity to engage in a blood donation drive for the local blood bank.

According to the doctors’ reports, there were exactly 167 for Eye Examination and 208 for general checkups “The response has been overwhelming as some of the employees noted that they don’t sometimes get the opportunity to visit their doctor or health entres. The initiative was seen as a great one overall,”

commented Karen Brown, Human Resource Manager for Sandals Regency La Toc.Based on the success of this project, Brown says the property will now be looking to embark on a Lets Move for Health Campaign with the support of the Ministry of Wellness beginning October 1, 2014.”LA TOC, CASTRIES, SAINT LUCIA “
