Chronic diseases and related lifestyle risk factors are the leading drivers of health care costs for employers and employees.
Productivity losses linked to employees who miss work cost employers $225.8 billion, or approximately $1,700 per employee, annually.
Having a wellness program initiative like health coaching in the workplace can mean lower direct costs, such as insurance premiums and workers’ compensation claims.
If employees are well-taken care, they are more productive, less stressed, and happier workers.
Employees need someone to explain and assist them with understanding health information and give them tools to make healthier and lasting changes to their lifestyles.
Health coaches engage employees and meet them where they are so they are more successful at making healthy behavior changes.
Increase Productivity: If your employees are well taken care of, they are happier and more productive.
Health coaches help employees understand where they are in life, get them ‘unstuck’ and create a plan of action by providing them with the tools to stay motivated.
Decrease Stress: Stress plays a major role in one’s life and is one of the nation’s leading health problems.
Health coaches work with employees to identify their stressors and create action plans to manage their stress.
Promote Healthy Behaviors: Long working hours, sedentary lifestyle, and low self-esteem are some of the many reasons employees turn to unhealthy behaviors.
Health coaches can help quickly identify unhealthy behaviors, prioritize, and focus on one at a time.
The workplace, where employees spend much of their day, is a perfect place to put healthy behavior changes into action.
By taking care of employees through health coaching programs, corporations are ensuring not only a healthy culture, but a more productive and successful company and workplace.
