Our clients are recognizing that increased engagement rates and benefits of online health coaching, offered alongside other LifeSynch wellness programs, helps employees better manage their health and increase their productivity.
Cincinnati (PRWEB) September 29, 2009 –
Hummingbird Coaching Services is providing its proven online health coaching to LifeSynch, to deliver integrated health and wellness services for LifeSynch’s customers.
Hummingbird pioneered the delivery of behavioral health coaching online in the late 1990s. Based on the science of Positive Psychology, its online and telephonic services combine trained experts in behavior modification with the latest communications technology.
Hummingbird has a reputation for high engagement rates and long-term results, augmenting health and productivity expert LifeSynch’s ability to engage members in wellness coaching. The online offering is designed to complement LifeSynch’s existing telephonic and tailored wellness services.
The new, cost-efficient model increases the opportunity to involve and engage more people, coordinate all wellness services and create a better user experience. LifeSynch’s participants may interact with coaches as frequently as they like through telephonic and web-based modes. Such personalized and frequent communications with the same coach builds trust and loyalty, leading to lasting behavior change.
“The partnership between LifeSynch and Hummingbird is modeling the future for health and wellness companies,” said Dan Clark, LifeSynch vice president of product development. “Our clients are recognizing that increased engagement rates and benefits of online health coaching, offered alongside other LifeSynch wellness programs, helps employees better manage their health and increase their productivity.”
Clark added that LifeSynch wanted to expand its capabilities online to take behavioral coaching to the next level. Online and mobile strategies — email, instant/text messaging, and online journaling — make the program scalable and cost effective. Such variety also increases communication, strengthening the coach-client bond and yielding sustainable behavior change.
