Health Coaching and Engagementhealth coaching

Most companies that implement a corporate wellness program run into problems at some point. The most common problem is lack of engagement. If your employees are not engaged in and excited about your wellness program, then it’s not going to be a success. There are many methods to boosting engagement, but we have found that adding a health coaching program is the best way to get employees more involved.

Health coaching puts a friendly and encouraging face on the wellness program. Employees will find it easier to get engaged because a Health Coach provides a personal touch. Health Coaches can help employees by educating them about health and wellness, encouraging them to make healthier choices, and providing a support system as each employee strives to make positive life changes.

How to Incorporate Health Coaches

Thankfully, a health coaching program is very easy to incorporate into your wellness program. You can use Health Coaches in a variety of roles. You could host weekly or monthly “Lunch and Learns” in which a health professional comes in and speaks to a group of employees. Health Coaches can lead these sessions or sit with the employee they’re working with and start a discussion after the talk. The best way to utilize Health Coaches is to make them visible and available to employees on a regular basis. Health coaches could have weekly appointments with each employee to check in and see how they are doing. Health coaches can also lead and guide employees as they participate in group challenges or individual accomplishments.
