Even as corporate wellness programs continue to rise in popularity, companies of all sizes still struggle with sustainable engagement. Having employees drop out halfway through a program is not a happy ending for wellness coordinators who invested effort and energy into the program.
Changing lifestyle behaviors can be a long and rocky road, and employees might just need a little push and assistance to get there. Health coaching can complement and enhance the effort employees make when participating in a wellness program by providing an individualized approach to wellness that empowers them to be advocates for their own health.
The result is improved participation, engagement, and retention in wellness programs.
Wellable's certified health coaches focus on many different dimensions of health, including nutrition, fitness, stress management, and work/life balance. They help employees develop a holistic approach to improve overall quality of life, as well as focus on specific goals that are important to each individual.
Wellable coaches help participants set goals and milestones that are achievable and tailored to each employee's unique situation. Employees take charge of their life and feel a stronger sense of ownership as well as a greater responsibility to follow through with their actions.
Health coaching can be promoted broadly, with sessions delivered on-site or virtually, by phone or video, to reach employees everywhere. Participants can select their coach and schedule one-on-one sessions through Wellable's Wellness Platform. Employees have the flexibility to switch coaches or meet with the same coach for multiple sessions. Organizations can allocate coaching hours through 20- to 60-minute sessions across all time zones and hours of the day, accommodating employees' diverse schedules
Wellable favors an inbound coaching model to ensure that the dollars spent on health coaching are used on individuals interested in the service and ready for behavior change. Employers can monitor how many individuals are utilizing the service, employee satisfaction with coaches, and whether employees were able to successfully implement and sustain healthy behaviors.
