Corporate Wellness Coaching
Corporate Health & Wellness Coaching is the adoption of a coaching programme that is specifically designed to promote and improve the health and well-being of an organisation’s employees.
Our busy modern lifestyles with long working hours, heightened stress and large amounts of time spent sitting down being sedentary is wreaking havoc on our health and well-being.
You might be interested to know that sitting is now considered the new smoking, with physical inactivity being the 4th largest risk factor for global mortality, causing an estimated 32 million deaths annually (World Health Organisation, 2020). However, the good news is that this is completely preventable and TOGETHER WE CAN do something about this.

What can Health & Wellness Coaching do for your organisation?
As an employer we know that you have clear goals for your organisations growth which are directly aligned with a clear vision to success. But, your organisations success is dependent on having employees who are working at their very best. Do you know if all of your employees are working at their very best? Do they all have optimal health and well-being? The answer to these questions is likely “No” if emerging data from the Health and Safety Executive, 2020 and Public Health England is anything to go by:
79% of British adults in employment commonly experience work-related stress, the most common type of stress in the UK.
17.9 million working days are lost due to work-related stress, depression or anxiety.
8.9 million working days are lost due to work related musculoskeletal disorders which includes muscle and joint pain.
7 out of 10 men and 6 out of 10 women are overweight or obese.
Obesity is associated with an increased risk of diabetes, coronary heart disease, cancer and poorer emotional and psychological well-being.
Work absence due to sickness costs UK employers a staggering £9 billion per year
The bad news is these numbers are on the rise. The good news, however, is that you as an employer can do something to reverse this trend!
Improving the health and well-being of your employees means that they are less stressed, happier, healthier and more productive.
Corporate Health & Wellness Coaching provides an excellent opportunity to promote and support increased health and well-being to all employees, and in particular, reaches out to those who would not normally seek help themselves.
A Corporate Health and Wellness package can be tailored to suit your organisation’s needs. A pilot Health Coaching programme can be implemented with baseline and follow up assessments on agreed outcome measures to inform best practice specific to your organisation and to inform a wider roll-out.
