Hyatt explores wellness in meetings for corporate clients

Hyatt Hotels has launched an initiative to explore ways to enhance wellbeing for corporate customers.  

Created and led by Hyatt’s global head of wellbeing Mia Kyricos, the inaugural Wellbeing Ideation Labs will bring together wellness industry experts to discuss how to better meet wellness goals across Hyatt’s properties. 

The first in the Ideation Lab series saw spa and wellness names including Elisabeth Halfpapp, founding senior teacher trainer at Hyatt spa concept Exhale; and Simon Marxer, director of spa and wellbeing at Miraval Resorts, talk with representatives from Fortune 500 companies including Deloitte and American Airlines. 

The group discussed ways in which Hyatt can help improve meetings and events for corporate clients through health and wellness “meeting experience” concepts. 

Various ideas were trialled during the session; healthy food and beverages were served and the group took regular breaks and performed brainstorming exercises using movement and mindfulness. 

“We believe wellbeing is the ultimate expression of our purpose – to care for people so they can be their best,” said Kyricos. 

“When it comes to our core meeting customers, we really do see them as an extension of our Hyatt family, and therefore understand it is just as important to place their wellbeing at the heart of our business model as it is for our guests and colleagues.”

With learnings from the first Wellbeing Ideation Lab, Hyatt plans on investing further in corporate wellbeing by infusing its “landmarks of wellbeing” – feel, fuel and function – into every area of service.
