Corporate Coaching and Workshops

How will hiring a Health Coach benefit your organization?

Global rates of obesity, diabetes, and other chronic diseases are on the rise. Over 65% of Americans are overweight, and by 2020 it is estimated that half of all Americans will suffer from a preventable, chronic disease. The United States alone spends over $2.5 trillion every year on healthcare, with a large portion of that money coming from employers’ pockets for employee health insurance, medical leave, and sick days.

Chronic stress, poor dietary habits, and lack of exercise all significantly contribute to employee performance. Luckily, many of these costly, chronic ailments can be avoided with simple, preventative care for employees.

Hiring a Health Coach for your company is a cost-effective solution to improve employee health and morale while decreasing your organization’s health-related costs. By working with a Health Coach, employees will learn how to make better food and lifestyle choices, improving their physical and mental well-being. In return, your organization will see an increase in employee engagement and productivity, and a decrease in employee stress and absenteeism.

A comprehensive analysis of 42 published studies of worksite health promotion programs showed that companies that implemented an effective wellness program realized significant cost reductions and financial savings including; an average of 28 percent reduction in sick days and on average a 26 percent reduction in health costs. They also saw a significant reduction in workers’ compensation and disability management claims.

The benefits of a program can include:

  • Lower healthcare costs for your organization
  • Reduced chronic disease risk
  • Decreased rates of illness, injury and disability
  • Reduced absenteeism
  • Increased employee productivity and efficiency
  • Improved morale and lower stress levels
  • Enhanced retention of healthy employees

I worked for 2o years as a marketing director for high-tech companies and I understand the intense pace of today’s workplace. It’s important to balance that with healthy food, exercise, positive relationships and activities that support and encourage mindfulness. Happy and healthy employees are the foundation of a successful business and your most valuable asset.

My corporate wellness programs vary from the very basic – working during lunch breaks or scheduled times each month – to the most comprehensive where employees have access to support and information each week. Obviously, the more comprehensive the program is, the more time is required on a day to day basis. I’ll work with your organization to create the best corporate wellness format for your budget and your staff’s needs.

Additionally, I offer 90-minute workshops that are a great way to determine if a health coaching program is right for your organization. Here are a few popular ones to consider:

Sugar Blues – This workshop that will help to change your relationship with sugar. Are you struggling with the ups and downs of sugar consumption? Do you grab something sweet when you need a boost? Many of us do. We get that initial boost in energy only to experience the sugar crash shortly thereafter and then our productivity goes right out the window.

We’ll cover the causes of sugar cravings and how to make healthier choices that won’t spike your blood sugar. The result: more energy, a clearer mind for better focus and an overall improvement in your productivity, health and well-being.

Ten Ways to Increase Your Energy Levels –  We live in a fast-paced world and it doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon, so how do we manage our lives to feel energized, healthy and strong enough to meet the challenge?

In this workshop, you’ll discover how to balance food, exercise, relationships and lifestyle choices to improve your energy level and enhance every aspect of your life. When you feel better, you work better. I’ll share tips on healthier lunches and snacks that will give you a sustained boost in energy. Plus, easy exercises that you can do throughout the day to help you stay more focused and engaged at your job.

The Corporate Pantry Sweep – I’ve seen the amount of processed and sugar laden foods that fill most corporate pantries. The ratio of healthy snacks to the less desirable food choices is a  little out of balance.

So what’s the best approach? I’ll work with a designated team within your organization to review what’s there and where we can make improvements. We’ll review food labels and gather input across your organization to restock the pantry with food choices that align with your employee’s and organization’s wellness goals.
