If you think of your executives as your team’s superstars, it makes sense to invest in keeping them in top physical condition to maintain peak performance
Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) August 14, 2007 –-
The results of a company can often be linked to the sustained contribution of its leadership team. Hummingbird's Executive Health Coach program is a great "perk" for executives, keeping them performing at top levels throughout the year.
The Executive Health Coach program turns an executive's annual physical into a highly personalized year-round wellness program that reduces stress and improves wellness, encouraging top performance.
Executive coaches interview and assess an executive’s risk factors post physical and implement a year-round coaching intervention, moving the executive toward specific health and life balance goals.
Stress can take a huge hit on employee focus and productivity. More importantly, employers should be concerned about stress’ long term effect on worker health.
According to the American Institute on Stress, chronic stress adds over $300 billion each year to cover associated health care costs and absentee rates. The emblematic Type A executive who works through lunch and skips vacations might be a star performer, but may ultimately cost employers much more than they counted on.
Companies offering comprehensive wellness solutions from a company such as Hummingbird Coaching provide intense workers a way to examine their motivations from a new perspective.
"Summer is a great time for driven employees to take a ‘time out’," said Sean Slovenski, chief executive officer of Hummingbird Coaching Services. "Changing summer schedules can be the impetus for workers to step back and recognize new ways to achieve success on the job by modifying their work patterns and habits. MyHealthCoach.com and Executive Health Coach’s coaches can help employees and executives clarify their work, health and family balance issues. Employers win when they motivate better employee health."
Regular fitness and improved nutrition can help employees release stress and make better scheduling decisions. The often ignored vacation may seem like a more attractive option when they are regularly making better decisions, feel better and are more relaxed.
Coaches arrange consistent interactions with employees through a coaching model that promotes quick results in the employees’ area of concern. Hummingbird’s products are a comprehensive wellness solution that includes an online delivery model that lets employees engage with coaching at their convenience, and in shorter but more frequent dialogues.
Executive Health Coach and MyHealthCoach.com include assessment tools such as biometrics, health risk assessments, a company-wide health audit, empowerment tools, health education components, incentives, and tracking mechanisms. A true comprehensive program can gain greater member participation and retention, which means higher productivity and lower health care costs. Hummingbird’s coaches help employees maintain focus on making real behavior and attitude change.
The Executive Health Coach program expands the benefits of an executive physical program to a year-round continuous improvement model.
"If you think of your executives as your team’s superstars, it makes sense to invest in keeping them in top physical condition to maintain peak performance," said Slovenski. "The Executive Health Coach program from Hummingbird can work with the existing executive physical program, or we can help you create one. The results are executives who manage stress better, become healthier and therefore can perform at higher levels."
