America's Healthiest Club’s Recognizes Eight Leaders for their passion and contributions to wellness

Dale Carnagie said it best; "People work for money, but will go the extra mile for recognition, praise and awards"

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO (Aug 2017), Sept. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Prevo Health Solutions, Executive Producer of the America’s Healthiest Clubs, has been recognizing and certifying top-tier private clubs since 2013, but the real superstars in this story are the department heads and team-members that make it all happen.  

PASSION, the official monthly digital newsletter publication of the America’s Healthiest Clubs recognizes and awards innovators, game-changers and passionate team-members for their contributions to improving the health and well-being of members and staff in the private club industry.

According to FORBES Jun 4, 2012 article The Top 9 Things That Ultimately Motivate Employees to Achieve, being relevant ranks #2 on the list. Glenn Llopis , contributing writer explains “In today’s world where everyone wants to be noticed and recognized for their work - employees are motivated to achieve to remain relevant. Helping employees increase their relevancy is important and those leaders that participate in this process will help cultivate increased performance levels and loyalty. Helping your employees get discovered will elevate their motivation to achieve.”

PASSION not only recognizes and awards people for their efforts, it also provides the reader with easy access to videos, photos and links to executable ideas, best-practices and stories.

Rick Ladendorf, President of Prevo Health Solutions and Executive Producer of America’s Healthiest Clubs, Publisher of PASSION and chair of the Wellness Project™ explains; “Wellness is a mindset that when ignited with purpose and fueled with passion, creates a cultural shift that is unique to the club, it’s members, the staff and the community. Wellness is a cultural thing, is difficult to describe and yet it is one of the most effective strategies private clubs use to recruit new members, retain existing members, increase member usage and improve the member experience.”

Implementing effective wellness programs requires teamwork, collaboration and support from management/leadership. But the real drivers of wellness are passionate department heads and team-members that do it because it’s the right thing to do.
