Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON (PRWEB) February 9, 2006 -- The award-winning White Oaks Conference Resort and Spa announces the first of its kind Human Performance Program to assist top level professionals maintain peak levels of performance through mental and physical well-being.
The human wellness and stress management program was designed to unlock the power within to encourage optimal potential performance. “The effect of stress and lack of balance on job performance is something companies are starting to take very seriously.” explains Louise Blais, White Oaks Human Performance Director.
“Participants in the Human Performance program receive a comprehensive health, fitness and lifestyle assessment,” continues Blais, “as well as lifestyle support seminars that are specifically designed to increase awareness and education regarding personal health and wellness and to provide participants with the necessary lifestyle skills needed to improve their current health status and overall personal productivity.”
Unique to the program, participants will continue to receive on-line support from their Personal Trainer and Lifestyle Coach to ensure that their lifestyle transition occurs as successfully and as seamlessly as possible.
A recent study of 370,000 employees in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine found that “presenteeism” – workers being on the job but not operating effectively because of stress or sickness is a larger and more costly problem than absenteeism, especially at senior management levels.
The Human Performance program was designed to go beyond stress management and business management training to assist individuals in finding balance between work and life – thus optimizing work performance.
The program is the only of its kind in Canada and has already been met with strong reviews. Sara Jamieson of TD Asset Management says of the program "Three months after participating, I can honestly say the effects are long lasting. I am stronger and more energetic than I have been in years."
The Human Performance Transformation Program is running the first in its series March 2-4th 2006 at White Oaks Conference Resort and Spa in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
