Health Coaching is a unique service that can improve a company’s culture of wellness by  empowering employees to take charge of their personal health. Through guidance, motivation,  and education, Wellness Coaches help employees make positive changes to their lifestyles in  order to reduce their risk for certain health conditions and diseases.

Many employees have some idea of what they need to change in order to be healthier, but may lack the motivation and consistency to do so. This is where Health Coaching becomes crucial for a company’s wellness program.

BeneFITSM Wellness Coaches are trained health professionals educated in  evidence-based models of behavior changes. Wellness Coaches serve as a support system to employees to help them make positive changes to their lifestyles. Our Wellness Coaches can:

  • Serve as a catalyst for long-lasting behavior change in employees striving to improve their health and wellness
  • Interact with employees on a personal level to develop trustful relationships
  • Work individually with employees to determine the most appropriate methods of change for their specific needs and aims
  • Help employees set and track their personal health goals to help them reach their best state of health

In order to achieve long-term success, employees in a Health Coaching program need a plan to drive them towards healthy success. Wellness Coaches facilitate an exploration of an individual’s strengths and core values for change. They relate these values and strengths to the employee’s  goals, making the employee’s plans for adjusting their lifestyles more meaningful, personal, and overall more successful. In addition, they review lifestyle topics such as stress management,  tobacco cessation, weight management, healthy eating, and physical activity, to help employees  work toward living more productive, healthier and fulfilling lives.

By providing ongoing one-on-one interactions, our Wellness Coaches offer consistent communication and are able to provide immediate support to keep employees on track and  progressing towards their highest potential.
