What is a Corporate Health and Wellness Coach?
Health coaches in corporate wellness design customized wellness programs for businesses that are comprehensive, change lives, make healthy decisions and save money. They also run programs to teach other providers how to create successful corporate wellness businesses.
What are the Benefits of Working with a Health Coach?
- Corporate Health and Wellness is more than Food & Exercise coaching
Many people have ideas about how to reach their fitness goals. Health coaches go beyond the
“What” such as wanting to cook more at home and help explore the “why” (what are barriers to cooking at home?) Coaches can help you identify what is blocking you from reaching your goals so that you can work together to create a plan for a healthier lifestyle.
- They keep you be accountable
Health coaches can break down your big goals into smaller, more achievable goals. When someone knows they have someone to report back to, they are more likely to follow through with the goals they’ve committed to. Research shows that social support makes people more likely to stick with behavioral changes. Having someone to keep track of your goals and keep you accountable makes it more likely that you reach your goals.
- No Plan is the Same
When you work with a health coach, you receive an individualized approach based on your own needs and goals. No one wellness plan is exactly the same.
- They act as your navigator
If you’re confused on where to start, what to eat, or have any dietary questions, a health coach can help you navigate what works for you. There isn’t a universal answer to everything, but you can be nudged in the right direction with a health coach.
- They help you help yourself
After going through your goals, you will learn methods that work best for you so they can be applied towards other efforts. Working with a health coach can help you build your sense of self-efficacy.
Is Corporate Health and Wellness Coaching Effective?
Coaching is effective for people who are trying to manage different health conditions. A recent study found that coaching “results in clinically relevant improvements in multiple biomarker risk factors (including systolic and diastolic blood pressure, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, fasting glucose, body weight, body mass index, waist circumference, and cardiorespiratory fitness) in diverse populations.” Coaching can also improve health-related quality of life and reduce hospital admissions in patients with COPD. This is probably the main reason why private companies are even starting to offer coaching to their employees in order to lower their healthcare costs.
What is the time commitment and cost for health coaching?
The time commitment and cost of coaching are highly variable. Some people do brief coaching, perhaps even one time sessions for a discrete problem. The cost varies with the skill and experience of the coach. As mentioned previously, some employers and medical plans may cover this, but there is a lot of evidence out there that health coaching around issues like weight loss can lower healthcare costs. It is also important to note that coaches take privacy very seriously, and they have a professional code of ethics. Coaching appears to be as effective when administered remotely by phone or by the internet when compared with face-to-face coaching. This provides a lot of flexibility, as coaching can be performed in person, over the phone, or through videoconferencing.
How to find the right coach for you?
Coaches’ resumes will be available for you to look at to see if their interests and experiences match the issues that you want to address. Coaches enter the field from a variety of different backgrounds, and it might be an advantage to pick a coach who has a background in health or wellness-related fields, though many extremely talented coaches come from careers in different realms. Word of mouth is almost always a great way to find a coach, or you can call your insurance company and if this is an offered benefit, it is likely that they have coaches that they can recommend. Having a trainer for your business can drastically improve your company’s workplace and well-being.
