“Presenteeism, an employee who works at a lower productivity rate due to health reasons, results in an annual cost of $6,721 per employee. A common misconception among employers is that employees who are absent due to illness are a bigger threat when in fact presenteeism is 10 times as costly. Several studies have shown that the top contributors for presenteeism health conditions are anxiety, depression, migraines, diabetes, arthritis, and back and neck pain.”
EMPLOYEE HEALTH AND WELLNESS COACHING
Tailored To Your Needs
As a certified Health Coach, Ayurvedic Specialist and Yoga Instructor, I facilitate an Employee Health and Wellness Program that is tailored to your needs. It includes education on how to implement better nutrition and life choices to create a healthier life, produce a more efficient day, and reduce stress in the work environment.
My programs are fun and an informative forum for the discussion of healthy living. I utilize an interactive approach to facilitate active learning and individual empowerment. This approach allows participants to engage in discussion and interact with other attendees through various exercises and brainstorming. Participants also receive valuable giveaways to take with them, furthering their knowledge after the program.
FACTS ON CORPORATE HEALTHCARE
Health insurance costs continue to rise and the current healthcare system is unsustainable.

STEP UP TO SUCCESS
JUMPSTART TO WELLNESS

My workshops on “Stress Management Made Simple” and “Healthy Eating at Work,” along with several others, will help increase productivity, decrease absenteeism, reduce the need for medical care, and increase employees’ desire to live a healthier lifestyle. The most successful companies know they save money (and retain good people) if they provide wellness education and lifestyle support for their employees.
A study at NASA found that while the productivity of non-exercising employees decreased 50% during the final two hours of the workday, those who had an exercise plan in place worked at full efficiency all day. This represents a 12.5% higher overall productivity level in exercisers as compared to non-exercisers.
HOW WILL HIRING A HEALTH COACH BENEFIT MY ORGANIZATION?
Global rates of obesity, diabetes, and other chronic diseases are on the rise. Over 65% of Americans are overweight, and by 2022 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.
Hiring a Health Coach for your company is a cost-effective solution to improve employee health and morale while decreasing your organization’s health-related costs. By working with a Health Coach, employees will learn how to make better food and lifestyle choices, 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.
WHAT IS A HEALTH COACH?
A Health Coach is a professional guide and mentor who empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health and supports them in making sustainable lifestyle choices. Health Coaches do not prescribe one diet or one way of living. Rather, they help people develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for their bodies. Some common areas where a Health Coach can assist include weight management, food cravings, sleep, energy, digestion, stress, and time management.
WHAT TYPES OF CLIENTS DO I WORK WITH?
I work with a diverse range of clients including men, women, young professionals, corporate executives, retirees, athletes, and inactive or over-weight individuals. My philosophy is that there is no one way of eating or living that works for everyone, and consequently, I have had success working with people from all walks of life.
WHAT ARE MY PROFESSIONAL CREDENTIALS?
I am an experienced wellness professional trained in diet, lifestyle, and wellness coaching. I graduated as a Health Coach from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition. See my About page for my professional background.
HOW SOON WILL WE SEE RESULTS?
Naturally, this will vary from person to person based on their current level of health and their willingness to participate. Nevertheless, even if the motivation isn’t there right away, that’s okay. I am skilled in inspiring clients to take action. My workshops, presentations, coaching sessions, and materials are interesting and engaging. By starting with small, achievable goals, employees will start seeing results rather quickly and will be motivated to move on to larger goals.
HOW MUCH TIME WILL EMPLOYEES NEED TO DEDICATE TO THIS PROGRAM?
That depends on your organization and the level of coaching you wish your employees to receive. My corporate wellness programs vary from the very basic – working during lunch breaks or scheduled times each month – to the most comprehensive where employees have access to support and information each week. Obviously, the more comprehensive the program is, the more time is required on a day to day basis. I will work with your organization to create the best corporate wellness format for your budget and your staff’s needs.
ARE THERE DIFFERENT LEVELS OF HEALTH COACHING TO CHOOSE FROM?
Yes, there are three different levels, ranging from basic coaching to comprehensive corporate wellness. Which level you choose is entirely up to you, and I can help you assess which plan is the best fit for your company’s needs.
To learn more of the coaching programs I offer, please book a consultation with me.
WHAT IF THERE ARE NO SERIOUS HEALTH ISSUES WITHIN THE COMPANY? WILL WE STILL BENEFIT FROM THE PROGRAM?
Yes! In fact, Health Coaches often work with clients who are generally healthy. Even these employees can benefit from health coaching as they may not be practicing nutrition and lifestyle habits that will ensure long-term health and vitality. Each participating employee will begin the program by filling out a Health History form so I can pinpoint any areas, obvious or not, where better health and lifestyle choices can be made.
IS THE INFORMATION DISCUSSED IN ONE-ON-ONE HEALTH COACHING SESSIONS KEPT CONFIDENTIAL?
Absolutely. All of the information shared in individual sessions will remain completely confidential between the employee and me, the Health Coach. My practice is HIPAA compliant and each employee will get their own online health portal account where they can view their session notes, recommendations and protocols.
HOW DO WE GET STARTED?
I am happy to answer any questions you may have about my services and look forward to setting you up with the perfect corporate wellness program right away! Book a consultation to see which program is right for your company.
