Health Coaching Works
In a study by the Joslin Diabetes Center, health coaching helped participants have an average 2.0-point drop on HbA1c in three months. When combined with a worksite wellness platform, the numbers dropped even lower – to 3.2 in three months on average. In comparison, those who did not participate in diabetes health coaching and instead did a year of insulin therapy and occasional doctor visits, saw a 0.5 – 1.0 average drop.
Create a Culture of Health
- Physically & Mentally -
"These programs aren’t just there to save money, per se. It sends a message that this company cares about people. It will attract people who want to work for a company that demonstrates a culture of health.”
-Helen Darling, President of the National Business Group on Health
70% of medical cost savings came from employees that used personalized health coaches, with each individual employee bringing in 6% more in cost savings if they used a coach. Other research found that individuals completing both a remote telephonic wellness coaching and online health coaching program were 64% more likely to reduce risk for obesity and 56% more likely to reduce risk for physical inactivity than those in the control group.
Companies with highly effective wellness programs generate industry-adjusted average revenues that are 40 percent higher than competitor companies with low-effectiveness wellness programs, yielding a difference of $132,000 per employee annually. Companies with the most effective health and productivity programs experienced 28 percent higher shareholder returns
Companies with the most effective health and productivity programs experienced 1.8 fewer days absent per employee. Employees who are intentional in creating healthy habits will benefit from less sick days due to physical and emotional stress

Mental Health Matters Too
Health is a “resource for everyday life not the objective of living”
Health is a state of well-being, not just the absence of disease. Health is a “resource for everyday life not the objective of living” (WHO, 1986). When we talk about health, it is easy to thing about physical health, but in reality, wellness is a set of positive factors related to one’s optimal health as a person who interacts with the world around them. Whole-person wellness positive factors include the physical, emotional, intellectual, social, environmental, and spiritual. The level of well-being in each of these six areas will affect our overall quality of life.
⇒ Physical: The ability to achieve a healthy lifestyle in nutrition and physical activity to minimise risk for chronic and metabolic diseases
⇒ Emotional: The ability to express emotions with comfort and in a healthy manner
⇒ Intellectual: The ability to learn and grow in areas that add value to the world around us
⇒ Social: The ability to develop meaningful relationships
⇒ Environmental: The ability to appreciate the external environment and improve things that are under our control
⇒ Spiritual: The ability to seek meaning, truth, and purpose in one’s daily life
