Are your organization’s corporate wellness programs meeting your goals of keeping your employees healthy, happy, engaged and productive?
Global rates of obesity, diabetes, and other chronic diseases are on the rise. Over 65% of Americans are overweight, and by 2020 it is estimated that half of all Americans will suffer from a preventable, chronic disease. The United States alone spends over $2.5 trillion every year on healthcare, with a large portion of that money coming from employers’ pockets for employee health insurance, medical leave, and sick days.
Chronic stress, poor dietary habits, and lack of exercise all significantly contribute to employee performance. Luckily, many of these costly, chronic ailments can be avoided with simple, preventative care for employees.
Incorporating corporate wellness programs into your existing employee benefits is a cost-effective solution to improve employee health and morale while decreasing your organization’s health-related costs. Employees learn how to make better food and lifestyle choices, significantly improving their physical and mental well-being. In return, your organization will see an increase in employee engagement and productivity, and a decrease in employee stress and absenteeism.
My philosophy is that there is no one way of eating or living that works for everyone. Rather, I help employees develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for their bodies. Common areas of focus include nutrition, exercise, lifestyle, weight management, cravings, sleep, energy, digestion, stress, and time management.
Regardless of the area of focus, we’ll begin with small, achievable steps employees can implement immediately, so they start seeing results right away. Those quick wins will motivate them to move on to larger goals. Together, we’ll build momentum across the organization as we implement each element of your corporate wellness program.
My workshops, presentations, coaching sessions, and materials are informative and engaging. I am known for creating customized programs that include all areas of health + wellness, and have provided a few examples below. I will work with your organization to create the best corporate wellness format for your budget and specific needs.
