Marriott Rebrands Expanded Healthy Hotel Certification Program

Marriott has rebranded and expanded its Healthy Hotel Certification program, with the launch of TakeCare Certification.

The TakeCare certification, designed to promote employee wellbeing, was previously only available to Marriott managed properties, but is now open to all external organizations, including schools, volunteer organizations, non-profits, hospitals, offices, teams and communities.

TakeCare Certification features new application questions and recognizes organizations with Silver, Gold, Platinum and now Titanium awards. Organizations that complete the questionnaire are assigned a certification level based on their score.

The questions range from Do you offer healthy food and beverage choices at meetings or sponsored events? to Do you promote tools and resources that educate and support a diverse and inclusive culture? and Do you sponsor at least one day per year focused on volunteerism?

One of the most positive findings to come out of our 2018 certification process was that 85 percent of our managed locations achieved certification, said Leah Evert, Global Director of Associate Wellbeing at Marriott International. Its great to see all the different ways our properties are taking steps to make their location a happier and healthier workplace such as having healthy snacks available, being involved in their local communities, and promoting career development for their associates.

One interesting fact that came out of the 2018 certification program is that 88% of Marriott managed properties support physical activity during work hours by hosting walking breaks or by sponsoring "fitness breaks".
