WBH Corporate Wellness Coaching

Corporate Wellness Coaches help craft employee wellness programs that address all aspects of worksite wellness from the physical (regular exercise, weight loss, muscle growth) to the behavioral (quitting smoking, seatbelt use), to the mental (stress management, grief management). Wellness in the workplace is anything that promotes a more balanced, healthier way of living.

 

Why should businesses be interested in worksite wellness?

 

Now more than ever, employers around the world are recognizing the benefits of a healthy workforce. In addition to happier, healthier team members, corporate wellness programs improve company productivity, brand image, as well as overall profitability.

 

The current state of healthcare and wellness in the U.S. has driven some disturbing statistics:

  • The primary cause of bankruptcy in the US is serious illness.
  • Over 2.3 trillion dollars is spent on health care every year.
  • The US spends 10% more on health care than countries with a universal health care system.
  • Preventable illness represents 70% of the cost of all illnesses.
  • Health Care represents 14% of the GDP.
  • Obesity alone increases health care costs by $1,500 on average.
  • Medical costs alone eat up over half of all corporate profits.

 

Companies that stand by and ignore the data see their costs rise and output fall. On the flip side, businesses that improve workplace wellness reap big benefits:

  • Lower Healthcare Costs
  • Reduced Absenteeism
  • Reduced Turnover

 

In terms of productivity, there is considerable evidence that employees who take part in corporate wellness programs experience a 15% to 20% increase in output. Overall performance and quality of deliverables tends to increase as well.

 

Employers that establish corporate wellness programs see an ROI of as much as $10 for every $1 spent. More indirect returns can be experienced as well:

  • Employee Morale
  • Attracting the Best Employees
  • Reducing Turnover


The Corporate Wellness Coach

Companies large and small are forced to notice the positive results of a properly established, well maintained health and wellness initiative. The reality is, however, most business owners and managers lack the understanding, ability and time to make this happen within their organization, without the assistance of an outside specialty resources such as a Corporate Wellness Coach. In the corporate environment, a Wellness Coach teams with Senior Management and Human Resources to collect data on the current state of affairs and lead the establishment of a formal, cost-effective company-wide program, designed to educate and improve the overall health and well-being of all company employees.
