Changing behaviors, especially bad ones, can be challenging. That's where a health coach can help.
Including health coaching in a wellness solution provides an extra boost for employees who are at risk, and who need and want to make changes to improve their health. Highly-personalized, health coaching offers one-on-one assistance to those who need it most.
The goals of our health coaching program include:
- Increasing confidence so individuals can make positive changes
- Helping individuals turn healthy habits into a lifestyle
- Identifying an action plan to achieve goals
How it works
Our health coaching program is not a one size fits all approach. Health coaches work with each individual to identify goals and barriers, providing education and support throughout the process.
Coaching is done primarily by phone. Health coaches may supplement with emails, text messages, online content and print resources plus follow-up activities, worksheets and ongoing health education related to specific risks.

Interaction between sessions is the key to the success of the program. It helps participants take small steps toward personal success while staying engaged and working toward their goals. The program typically includes four scheduled, one-on-one sessions. The participant can also use a toll-free phone number to call a health coach in between sessions.
Our health coaches have many years of experience working with a diverse group of participants and employers. All of our health coaches have a bachelor’s degree in a specialty area related to health and wellness. Some of our health coaches may have advanced degrees.
