AdvantageHealth is offering many virtual employee well-being programs to keep your workforce healthy and strong while working remotely during this unprecedented time of COVID-19.
Virtual Personal Training: Our certified and professional staff are ready to work with your employees to help them feel more focused and energized to reach their fitness goals during this difficult time. We have experience with all levels of fitness, from beginners to seasoned athletes. Participants select from one of our personal trainers that best matches their workout style and goals and work one-on-one with their trainer online via Zoom or phone. (Training sessions are up to 30 minutes)
Lifestyle Coaching: Our health coaches work one-on-one with participants, empowering them to make long-term, healthy changes with physical activity, nutrition, weight management and stress. The 3-6 month program includes bi-monthly online Zoom or phone meetings that build confidence and skills participants can use long past the end of the program. Each session consists of the following topic areas: readiness to change, short-term and long-term goals, motivation, triggers, coping skills and relapse prevention.
Empower12: Twelve months of "Smart Nutrition," developed by Chef Marshall O’Brien, is a program of nutrition, sleep, hydration and physical activity that totally reinvents your employees’ lives. Reach all of your employees with this comprehensive program that includes Chef Marshall’s Smart Nutrition Workbook and Cookbook, plus weekly coaching, tips, recipes, and motivation emailed to participants by Chef Marshall to keep them on track.
Immunity Video Series: With the current Coronavirus pandemic, organizations are putting together plans to educate their employees about smart actions that they can take to remain healthy. Ensuring that people have a healthy immune system goes a long way in fighting and minimizing the effect of this virus as well as the seasonal flu. Smart Nutrition is the best way to ensure that your immune system is operating at maximum efficiency and better able to fight off viruses that come your way. Our video program includes critical components to help your immune system operate at its peak performance. The three videos are:
Foods to Improve your Immune System
Foods for Good Gut Health – 70-80% of your immune system is in your gut
Foods to Reduce Stress – stress is a major contributor to reducing your immune system
Webinars: Most of our AdvantageHealth 200+ seminars can now be offered via webinar. Popular topics during COVID-19 include mindfulness, resilience, stress management, clean eating, office yoga, sleep, physical activity and more.
Wellness Challenges: Incentive campaigns and wellness challenges are designed to create awareness around healthy behaviors, while providing rewards. Typically 3–12 weeks in length, these powerful programs target risk areas and address total well-being backed by the latest research. Popular challenges during COVID-19 include: Stress Less, JustStep!, Resilience Challenge, Superfoods Challenge, Deep Sleep Challenge, 30 Days of Mindfulness and more.
NEW! Employee Temperature Screening
Businesses that remain operational during the COVID-19 pandemic are faced with the challenge of determining what they can do to minimize the risk of spreading the virus while still being able to provide critical products and services to our communities. Many of these essential employers have started screening employees’ temperatures in an effort to ensure that employees with symptoms of the illness do not infect their coworkers.
How We Can Help:
AdvantageHealth can implement the best practices for employee temperature screenings during the COVID-19 pandemic at your workplace.
Our professional staff will take temperature readings utilizing non-contact, infrared thermometers. We will also discuss testing logistics, employee consent, confidentiality and protocols specific for your organization.
