Eliminating the Confusion
When an organization incorporates a wellness program and begins to offer health benefits, many employees will feel encouraged to work towards a healthier lifestyle. While you may feel you have included sufficient guidelines and resources within your wellness program, making the right lifestyle changes can be overwhelming and confusing. In fact, when it comes to eating healthier, the International Food Information Council Foundation’s annual Food and Health Survey, found that 80% of Americans feel there is too much conflicting information about which foods to eat and what to avoid. And then many times stress and emotional health concerns can be underlying challenges needing attention first. That is why on-site wellbeing coaching is so impactful! Wellbeing coaches eliminate the confusion and provide the guidance, education, and encouragement that employees are looking for.
When a program is new, excitement and interest drive participation rates. As time goes on, though, engagement can be the most difficult element to maintain. Wellbeing coaches help tremendously with this. For example, with HD Core Coach, an on-site wellbeing coach helps keep the program organized, interesting, and relevant to employees. The responsibilities of our onsite wellbeing coaches can include:
- Advising your wellness committee.
- Communicating and promoting wellness initiatives.
- Delivering wellness workshops, awareness campaigns, group programs, and challenges.
- Leading physical activities, i.e. walking groups, strength training.
- Offering recommendations for environmental and cultural strategies that fosters total well-being.
- Developing the communication strategy and providing periodic reporting to demonstrate progress, engagement, and outcomes of the wellness program.
