Employers are increasingly focused on lifestyle coaching as the core of robust and scalable employee wellness programs. Employers are also increasingly aware that the most effective wellness interactions have little impact if the employees are not engaged in the programs and resources available to them. As companies continue to invest in worksite health and wellness programs with an eye toward making wellness more convenient and impactful for employees, the lack of employee engagement remains an industry challenge. This webinar will address a best practice model for member engagement, lifestyle program design and delivery methods, and health coaching training and development. Finally, a case study of how onsite health coaching can supercharge employee engagement in health and wellness programs will be reviewed.
Following the webinar, participants will be able to:
- identify best practices in member engagement, program design, and training delivery methods.
- understand how to overcome engagement barriers in the workplace.
- recognize how onsite coaching “done right” can supercharge engagement in health coaching, wellness, and health management programs.
