What is WYAO?
WYAO is an acronym. It stands for “WORK your ass off”.
When we first started WYAO, we asked ourselves the question, what does it take to get healthy? And the simple answer is, it takes Work. And Work is often viewed as a bad word. But it doesn’t have to be. The right kind of Work can be fun; it can be educational; Work can be a journey; it can be the path to a goal. But Work is always the road to success. And WYAO Hawaii is there to partner with you and your company in the right kind of Work.
So, WYAO isn’t just an acronym. It’s a statement.
WYAO to get FIT
WYAO to get HEALTHY
WYAO to FEEL GOOD
WYAO to MINDFULNESS
WYAO to WELLNESS
We look forward to boosting your employee productivity and your bottom line in 2020!
WYAO Hawaii is designed to support companies in the shift from an ‘activity-based’ wellness program to a thriving, integrated results-oriented wellness system. We are grounded in a nationally recognized and research-based model to assist companies through a seven-step sequence toward Workplace Wellness Success.
