Manasquan NJ USA -- October 16, 2008: A growing number of employees and health plans are offering health and wellness coaching as part of an overall movement in the industry toward consumer-driven healthcare plans. A new study by United Benefit Advisors found that of the employers that offer wellness programs, more than a third (39.1%) include on-site coaching or coaching by telephone for high-risk employees.

During Health and Wellness Coaching in 2009, a 90-minute webinar on November 12, 2008, two health and wellness coaching experts will examine how health coaching is evolving as an industry as the growth in health coaching continues. We will look at what trends will impact health and wellness coaching in 2009, including incentive and technology use, coaching theories and ROI developments.

  • New developments and trends in the use of incentives for achieving health coaching results;
