Sodexo Offers Landmark Program to Promote Employee Health and Worklife Balance
Date:7/22/2009

GAITHERSBURG, Md., July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- To help employers face the challenges of retaining top employees and maintaining productivity and morale in today's difficult economy, Sodexo, Inc., now offers a Quality of Life Services Program -- ToLive. The company announced today the launch of the program designed to positively impact employee health, morale, attendance, retention and organizational effectiveness.

Sodexo, a comprehensive service solutions company with a core business of integrated food and facilities management, created this program with today's corporate employers in mind, addressing the fact that 75 percent of chronic diseases are lifestyle related and avoidable according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). If ignored, they can also impact the bottom line of companies.

"Employers understand that during these difficult economic times, their employees might not be as focused on taking care of their health and wellbeing. At the same time, companies can no longer afford to absorb the economic consequences associated with employees' poor health," said Aster Angagaw, senior vice president of market development, Sodexo Corporate Services. "Sodexo can help companies manage this dilemma by offering a unique set of solutions designed to manage the needs of employees while allowing the employer to focus more on their core business. This unique holistic approach is what makes Sodexo a valuable business partner to our clients."

ToLive includes the delivery of an integrated approach to services that impact health & wellness, work-life balance, workforce diversity, sustainability and workplace services, for example:

  • Health and wellness tools and resources to create a culture that supports healthier lifestyle behaviors, leading to higher employee productivity and more importantly lower heath insurance costs
  • Worklife effectiveness resources like a virtual concierge to improve productivity through offerings ranging from multiple errand elimination services, a personal resource center and many other stress-reducing amenities
  • Best practice sharing and expert consultation for other workplace services, diversity and sustainability initiatives

Combining online and onsite tools and strategies address both the onsite and virtual workforces. Angagaw added, "ToLive is comprehensive, incentive-driven and trackable therefore sustainable for long term company use."
