HPW Internship: EXOS

HPW Student Internship Experience – Trevor Rhodes Summer 17′

Interning with EXOS at Shell Oil (Woodcreek, TX) has allowed me to experience what wellness centers and wellness programs consist of at one of the largest companies in the United States. I have been able to participate in a massive variety of learning experiences ranging from personal and group training for Shell Oil Doctors and Engineers to learning how to manage a wellness center and how to design, promote, and implement a wellness program from scratch. As an intern with EXOS I was also granted access to all of their continuing education material which consisted of many health and wellness lectures as well as opportunity to become certified through EXOS as things such as an Exercise Performance Specialist and Exercise Fitness Specialist (which I actually became certified in during the internship). I was also able to experience something quite unique during our wellness center renovations where I was tasked with creating new programs for Shell employees to participate in while the wellness center was being upgraded.
Below, you can see an example of me giving a presentation about hydration and onsite wellness tips (our monthly topic) to a group of about 40 Shell Oil Engineers and Doctors. This is a program that myself and another intern built from the ground up. After a ton of conference calls with multiple different people ranging from the head of catering to program scheduling directors we finally got to present this hour long lecture/ lunch and learn!
