[May 26, 2016, Macau] MGM launched the two-week “Golden Lion Health Campaign” for team members in May to promote the importance of work-life balance as well as living a fit and healthy lifestyle at work and at home. Over the course of the campaign, in almost 10,000 employees and their family members joined a variety of indoor and outdoor activities, which included Employee Assistance Program roadshow, family hiking in Coloane, Chinese medical consultation, acupressure point massage workshop, dietitian seminar, healthy meal promotion at employee dining room as well as a fun fitness program.
Employee Assistance Program: Restoring Wellness in Body and Mind
The Golden Lion Health Campaign started off with the “Employee Assistance Program Roadshow — Say Goodbye to Insomnia!” MGM worked closely with its long-standing partner, Sheng Kung Hui Service Coordination Office, to offer simple tests and games to let team members understand the causes of insomnia and how to unleash their full potential by getting a good night’s sleep.
After all, the team members’ overall wellness depends on more than just good sleep and physical health, emotional and mental wellness are important aspects as well. Upholding this belief, the Employee Assistance Program provided by Sheng Kung Hui Service Coordination Office has been offering team members at all levels and their family members a 24-hour counseling service hotline and on-site counselors to provide support for any personal concern on a weekly basis.
Good Exercises Lead to Better Work-Life Balance
To achieve and maintain “Work Life Balance” which MGM has always placed at high priority, a family hiking activity was arranged for the team members and their family members at Hác-Sá Reservoir on a Saturday morning to spend quality time day with their families, while enjoying the fresh air and scenery of Macau. The outing also encouraged communication among families, colleagues and friends.
Improving health in the Most Natural Way
On the Chinese Medical Consultation Day, six professional medical practitioners from the Chinese Medicine Association were invited to provide free consultations to team members at back of house area, and the participants were given customized herbal teabags including Dried Logan Goji Tea, Chinese Angelica Tea, and Healthy Peppermint Tea. In addition, an acupressure massage workshop was organized for the team members as a full treatment to help improve health and fitness.
Ms. Wendy Yu, Senior Vice President of Human Resources of MGM said, “Work-life balance feeds passion for the workplace and contributes to a better overall working environment and morale. We are particularly proud of our Golden Lion Health Campaign because it promotes the importance of adopting a balanced and healthy lifestyle to our team members at all levels, and we hope they can motivate their friends and family to stay fit at work and at home, both physically and mentally.”
With the belief that each employee’s physical and mental well-being are equally important for their career development, MGM strives to help team members build a healthy life which allows them to reach their full potential in their career paths by providing a wide array of long-term wellness campaigns with new and innovative approaches. In addition to promoting health and wellness to team members, MGM will roll out a two-week Community Care Campaign in July for the fourth consecutive year, to spread the message of living a happy, wholesome life and to Create a Better Tomorrow Today for every member of Macau’s community.
