Wellness Work Retreats Help Prevent Employee Burnout

Press release

July 17, 2019

St. George, Utah, July 17, 2019 – One in four workers are experiencing burnout at work, according to a survey by Gallup, and it’s costing the global economy a whopping $323.4 billion annually. Employers are seeking solutions to inspire, relax and reward their employees in creative ways, and a wellness work retreat is just the answer. Red Mountain Resort, a premier adventure and wellness destination in southwestern Utah, offers unique retreats for companies of all sizes to reinvigorate and inspire their employees.

Red Mountain Resort invites companies and meeting planners to integrate mindfulness as a core theme in their upcoming business travel. As an escape designed to bring balance and wellness to guests, the resort harmoniously weaves self-care into its programming, resulting in healthier, happier and more productive employees.

See below for details on Red Mountain Resort’s new corporate meetings and event amenities.

Reinvigorate with Group Adventure Activities

Planners can take advantage of customizable adventure trips to Candy Cliffs and Zion National Park, in addition to kayaking, hiking, bird watching or even exploring nearby underground petroglyphs. By weaving aspects of wellness into its programming, Red Mountain Resort’s mindful approach offers guests an elevated shared experience for meaningful team bonding.

Relax with Group Spa and Wellness Offerings

After a day of exploring, groups can indulge in Red Mountain Resort’s unique workshops and spa treatments to restore the mind, body and spirit. Offerings include PJ’s and Face Masks, a shaman-led Fire Ceremony, Stargazing (s’mores included) under one of the nation’s darkest skies and the resort’s popular Drum Circle- a fun-filled adventure that shows guests how rhythmic drumming can reduce stress, decrease pain, regulate blood pressure and boost the immune system. 

Spark Loyalty with Team Bonding

Innovative and custom-designed team bonding opportunities allow for friendly competition, sparking long-term loyalty and commitment in employees. The resort’s fitness team can design a custom boot camp, followed by lunch and a 25-minute massage, or if the group is full of foodies a chili cookoff judged by Chef Luethje is available. Groups over 12 can test their communication and direction skills with a GPS Cache Search around the resort’s grounds.

Inspire by Giving Back to Wildlife

For those looking to give back, the Where Heart Meets Horse takes groups to meet and interact with a herd of wild mustangs. Guests can learn to lead the horses and experience the powerful heart-to-heart hug to gain further inspiration. Proceeds from this experience support wild horse care and adoption efforts.

Reward with Gourmet Dining Options

Red Mountain Resort’s menus are thoughtfully crafted with the belief that banquet food doesn’t need to compromise on nutrition and flavor. The resort’s Canyon Breeze Restaurant offers kosher, vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options, with nutritional information available for all dishes. Full service catering is also offered, with choice from three delicious meals a day plus snacks to fuel the group’s motivation.

Motivate with Beautiful Meeting Spaces & Accommodations

The resort’s private event spaces welcome thinking, and being, outside the box. Breaking out of stiff conference rooms or boring banquet halls inspires refreshed creativity and cooperation. Select spaces even include delightful aromatherapy and stress reduction baskets. Event spaces range from nearly 10,000 square feet to 500 square feet, catering to groups of eight to 100. Projectors, high-speed internet, sound and other audio/visual capabilities are available in select event spaces.

Following the meetings, individuals can finish their day in one of the resort’s 82 stylish rooms or 24 luxury two-bedroom villas. Red Mountain Resort can accommodate a total of 210 guests.
