A customized approach to corporate wellness.
CURRENT CORPORATE WELLNESS PROGRAMS ARE FAILING
A 2019 article published by the New York Times and titled, "Employee Wellness Programs Yield Little Benefit, Study Shows" concludes:
While workers who enrolled in the wellness program reported that they learned to exercise more and watch their weight, the research found no significant differences in outcomes like lower blood pressure or sugar levels and other health measures. And it found no significant reduction in workers’ health care costs.
"OF COURSE, THEY FAILED!"
No one reverses large health issues just because they "learned to exercise and watch their weight."
No one reduces healthcare costs in one year (the duration of the study) when employees have not been taught to emotionally connect with and value proposed healthy lifestyle changes.
No one succeeds in breaking bad habits and installing new ones when they haven't been given a support structure to help them stay on track and achieve accountable, measurable and desirable goals.
But they can.
Given adequate process, structure, and support anyone can create improved health outcomes.
The problem with traditional corporate wellness programs is that they struggle with gaps in four major areas:
of practices, results
of investment + employee experience
of dispersed employees
is sparse in busy schedules
We have a plan to fill the gaps.
By teaching easy-to-implement and quick-results stress reduction tools the L.E.A.D program simplifies sustainability.
By helping employees on the level of emotional change L.E.A.D. increases the experiential value of the process, plus can produce deeper and more lasting results.
By offering on-site, phone, and virtual programs L.E.A.D. provides live connection among co-workers and practitioners regardless of how remotely they work.
By using methods that often produce significant and immediate results the L.E.A.D. program can offer a short-term time investment with the potential to create long-term success.

Creating a successful culture of corporate wellness
that reduces stress and increases employee health, energy, morale, and productivity isn’t about pushing employees to do things that they have little to no interest in doing; it’s about pulling them forward into a vision of health that they can experience first-hand.
Holistic Health Connections' THE WELLNESS WARRIORS L.E.A.D. PROGRAM does just that:
A customized and personalized approach to corporate wellness, we've developed L.E.A.D, our 3-step, signature system that combines leadership enhancement with wellness by utilizing scientifically-researched, evidence-based processes to deliver experiences designed to inspire employee engagement, commitment, and personal empowerment development to achieve qualitative stress reduction and health improvement results. And, we do all of that while expanding employees' professional confidence, competence, and motivation.
GET TO THE ROOT CAUSE OF
PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION SO THAT RESULTS LAST AND HABITS CHANGE.
Achieving quality wellness results that change your bottom line requires a wellness program that goes beyond the conventional, technological (and isolating) tools of pedometers, biometrics, and web portals.
THERE IS A LACK OF IN CURRENT CORPORATE WELLNESS PROGRAMS, DESPITE THE FACT THAT THEY ARE DESIGNED TO IMPROVE THE HEALTH OF.... HUMANS.
Employees are human beings and need their humanness supported to create lasting change. This means going deeper than superficial physical issues to instead treat the emotional and psychological reasons for chronic health issues. With these blocks removed, achieving wellness goals becomes exponentially easy.
The L.E.A.D program combines leadership enhancement processes with stress reduction skills so that employees reclaim a sense of calm, choice, and accountability both in their personal and professional lives.
L.E.A.D.'s design accomplishes this in four dynamic ways:
LEVEL UP emotional, mental, and physical actions to remove habits and strategies that create ill health.
ENERGIZE, enthuse, and engage employees so that their excitement fuels the momentum and sustainability of change.
ACTIVATE easy-to-implement and feasible healthy routines so that increased wellness is achieved without spending enormous amounts of time, money, or effort.
DECREASE stress through simple, practical, sustainable daily practices so that wellness becomes an automated lifestyle.
Grounded in a universally applicable
3-phase approach to wellness, the L.E.A.D. program helps employees learn how to become leaders in their health and their work, simultaneously.
Chronic health issues leave employees feeling:
lack of empowerment
fear for their emotional and physical safety
diminished sense of control
reduction of self-efficacy
These outcomes reduce focus, accountability, responsibility, motivation, dedication, and productivity at work.
The L.E.A.D. program is designed to restore a strong sense of empowerment, safety, control, and self-efficacy so that employees experience a surge of emotional well-being that transfers into action-oriented processes in the area of health.
The more emotional and physical wellness employees feel the more energy they bring to their hours at the office.
The L.E.A.D. program's 3-phase approach operates on the following platform:
Employees move through a process that helps them identify the emotional root cause of their stress reaction.
The L.E.A.D. program helps employees:
recognize and prioritize stressors to raise conscious awareness of when stress begins to interfere with functioning
evaluate personal stress responses to create clarity about what happens, how, and when in those moments that stress occurs
envision the desired transformation so that each individual designs a personal roadmap for creating change
Employees learn and/or experience simple and practical stress reduction interventions.
With the introduction of holistic techniques employees learn how to:
reprogram their stress response so that old, negative habits release while new, positive habits are introduced and integrated
install new (and easily replicated) stress reduction processes so that employees have simple techniques to utilize in even the most challenging emotional moments
refine a stress reduction program that fits the ecology of both workplace and private life so that the new program seamlessly fits into the existent macrocosm
Employees develop their own strategy for creating a sustainable wellness routine.
The L.E.A.D. program teaches employees to design and execute a simple, personalized stress reduction strategy, and then provides follow up contact and maintenance support so that employees:
learn how to design and generate their own wellness outcomes, which allows them to create a sense of ownership and control
map out an individualized plan for ongoing results that are reasonable, feasible, and achievable
gain mastery through repetition of stress reduction processes to create a customized self-led program that lasts long after training and instruction ends

Offering a more comprehensive perspective on the growth of the industry nationally, the Global Wellness Institute, a nonprofit research and educational resource for the wellness industry, reported that “…the global wellness market grew 10.6 percent to $3.72 trillion from 2013 to 2015 (latest figures available), while the global economy shrank 3.6 percent over the same period.” Within that market growth, alternative and complementary medicine saw some of the most significant growth across all sectors with a 65% increase since 2010. Furthermore, a 2014 Global Wellness Institute Study revealed that the global wellness market was worth $3.4 trillion, making it nearly three times larger than the $1 trillion worldwide pharmaceutical industry.
Similarly, IBISWorld reports that the “…Alternative Healthcare Providers industry is becoming more mainstream and less alternative. Consistent demand for alternative care is partly attributable to the essential nature of industry services, as patients are less likely to cut spending on healthcare than they are to reduce spending on more discretionary goods.”
The research, while covering both national and international trends applies to Palm Beach County where even hospitals (ie. Jupiter Medical Center) are formally integrating alternative and complementary practices into the allopathic arena.
Driven especially by consumers’ disappointment in the mainstream approach to help prevent illness and/or heal it naturally to create health and wellness, the industry’s upward growth trend is poised to continue. Even more so in light of the fact that as traditional insurance covers less and less patients feel more and more compelled to spend their health dollars in ways and places that feel good to them.
Lastly, Gen Z (23% of the population, 74mm strong, and growing up with an appreciation of holistic approaches as taught by their parents) will also be a forceful agent of transition and transformation in support of the holistic industry as they enter adulthood with strong beliefs about how health and wellness can be naturally achieved.
