BETHESDA, Md. — Marriott International has launched a custom app-based well-being challenge called TakeCare Level30 for guests and associates around the world.
The app is available through the Apple App Store and Google Play and allows users to partner up and compete by building positive behaviours into their daily routine through engaging experiences and events, group activities and self-help tips.
“TakeCare Level30 is an engaging experience designed with a partner in mind to complete a variety of well-being activities and earn points together,” says Leah Evert, global director of Associate Wellbeing at Marriott International. “It’s always better to have a friend or colleague you can rely on for encouragement when making any kind of change. We developed the app with the notion that it takes 30 days to build a habit. The activities within the app are tied to personal well-being, connecting with others, and caring for the environment — all a part of what makes working at Marriott International so rewarding for associates — and achievable within 30 days.”
The app also offers coaching on various topics, such as career building, developing healthy minds and bodies and sharing respect, kindness and passion for community services.
Marriott’s internal research has shown promoting this elevated level of employee experience and personal well-being is foundational to creating exceptional travel experiences for its hotel guests.
“We established TakeCare as a well-being initiative many years ago to give associates easy, efficient ways to improve their health and happiness,” says Dr. David Rodriguez, executive vice-president and global Chief Human Resources Officer at Marriott International. “Today, it has become a global movement fuelled by a universal passion for opportunity, community and purpose. The Level30 app raises the bar even higher, elevating TakeCare to the digital realm with access for all. We’re eager and excited to invite our customers to join our family of associates by competing in this year’s global well-being challenge.”
