Health and wellness are more important than ever — and not just in our personal lives. These areas have become increasingly important in the corporate space, with businesses adopting initiatives that not only encourage employees to sustain their own health and wellness but provide the resources and guidance to do so effectively and safely. As a leading provider of corporate nutrition coaching, our team of Registered Dietitians and Wellness Coaches have put together this list of the benefits of on-site and virtual corporate health coaching for your business:

Employees Are Not as Prone to High-Risk Diseases

Obesity, nutritional deficiencies, smoking, poor sleeping habits — these sorts of unfavorable factors cause substantial severity to myriad chronic diseases and health complications. Heart disease — the leading cause of death in the US — as well as diabetes, high blood pressure, and other conditions have only been exacerbated by the pandemic. With our nutrition services and wellness coaching at the helm, employees have the resources they need to improve everything from their diet to mental health. Additionally, studies show companies lose nearly $730 billion toward healthcare costs resulting from modifiable lifestyle habits.

Boost Employee Engagement Rates

Companies lose hundreds of billions in lost productivity, particularly due to a lack of employee engagement. Often, employees are not even aware of all the various wellness program modules and their benefits. Corporate health coaching can work to sketch out a suitable plan for employees’ health and wellbeing. When employees comprehend what they’ll be gaining through the workplace wellness programs, it’s bound to bolster their participation and employee engagement rates. Our specialists have achieved engagement rates of 85% across all employee risk populations.

Improve Employee Productivity

Employee mental and physical health influences focus, performance, and productivity at the workplace. Healthier employees are happy and productive, which, in turn, impacts business growth and ROI. Our specialists can hold personalized coaching sessions with employees to discuss engagement issues as well as other concerns. This allows them to create custom coaching programs that work to reduce burnout, promote a healthier work-life balance, and ensure employee productivity.

Accessibility and Flexibility

It’s crucial for employees to not only be able to seek support — but do so when and how they need it. In-person and virtual options for care coupled with a world-class digital platform make coordination easier than ever before. From online scheduling to personalized goal setting and beyond, employees are able to make their health journey their own — not feel coerced into a one-size-fits-all approach to corporate wellness. Whether employers work in remote locations, during off-hours, or at home full-time, virtual health coaching makes a high caliber of care — and convenience — possible. Employers, too, can take advantage of a customized solution by working with a partner that lets them spend smarter — not simply more.
