DALLAS, April 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Viverae®, a leader in workplace wellness, announced a new service that matches employers with experts to elevate engagement in their wellness programs. The three types of professional services include wellness coordinators, health coaches, and registered dietitians. With more than 13 years of expertise in designing successful workplace wellness programs, Viverae will recruit, vet, hire, train and manage top talent for clients in need of dedicated program coordination, wellness initiative support, and health culture cultivation to drive greater engagement in company-led wellness initiatives.
Managing wellness programs can significantly increase the workload of human resource administrators and involve health knowledge outside of conventional employee management. Viverae can provide specialized wellness coordinators to maximize dollars spent and drive and execute program initiatives. Wellness coordinators have the expertise to define program strategies, direct wellness champions, measure engagement success, coordinate activities and events, and execute recognition and reward programs. Since no two companies are alike, wellness coordinators have the ability to customize health events and tailor program elements to fuel and maintain engagement.
Health coaches are trusted advisors, motivators, and lifestyle experts available on-site to help employees in areas such as tobacco cessation, weight and stress management, nutrition, and fitness. They also play a major role in condition management and educate and manage at-risk employees. With the expertise of motivational interviewing, coaches can help employees develop a long-term strategy with health goals, hold them accountable, and monitor progress. All health coaches receive specialized training and accredited certification. With health coaching, members benefit from continuous access to a health professional, minimizing doctor's visits and associated costs.
Food is an essential part of life, and a balanced diet is at the core of health and well-being. While registered dietitians are informed with physical aspects of food, they also understand personal and emotional attachments. On-site dietitians can provide individualized solutions to barriers for eating healthy. They also provide guidance on weight-management and diabetes-condition support. The experts at Viverae know that a much higher level of accountability is present when someone is onsite because deeper levels of relationships and trust are built.
"We know that each client's culture is unique, which drives our commitment to personalized service. Our goal is to arm our clients with the tools they need to significantly impact their program, regardless of their size or experience," said Mike Lamb, president and chief executive officer at Viverae. "As a tenured leader in the market, we have the ability to attract top talent and supply that mobilization to our clients."
Companies that want to excel in offering unique wellness programs or need additional support will benefit from adding human expertise. The experts at Viverae believe that these professional services present opportunities to drive engagement and mitigate costs. Their research shows that employees who have access to personalized services will make better health decisions over time.
