At JVM, Wellness Benefits Emphasized for Residents, Employees
JVM Realty Partners is finding that when residents can engage in the exercise they want to, retreat and unwind from the stresses of modern life, and make meaningful social connections, that's when an apartment truly feels like home. And that's when residents want to become long-term residents.
JVM recommends these steps for improving wellness at a community through a recent post on its blog:
Develop a fitness experience, not just a fitness center.
Exercise is the wellspring of wellness, and today's renters want to engage in a wide variety of physical activities: weight training, yoga and cardio work, to name just a few.
Provide ample spaces for socializing.
Humans are social animals, and central to our wellness is a sense of connection with others. Through its array of amenities and events, an apartment community can provide residents a chance to forge relationships with each other.
Swimming pools with expansive sundecks, playgrounds, grilling and picnic areas, and clubhouses equipped with games, fireplaces, TVs and Wi-Fi empower residents to connect informally or at community events.
Implement an associate wellness program.
Wellness programs produce healthier, happier and more productive associates. When associates feel more energetic and engaged with their jobs, they're more apt to provide outstanding customer service to residents, which will contribute to their happiness.
