Never before have the boundaries between home, work and health been so tested. As these complex times continue to disrupt the way we work, the way we connect at work, socially & at home along with the added stressors associated with current public health, employment and financial crisis, employee health is likely to be challenged more than ever before.
The Adapt program aims to provide a targeted solution that enables organisations to support their people to manage their health in the face of these challenges. The Adapt program is a virtual solution that delivers team education and capability building along with individual coaching & support while still leveraging the interpersonal factors most important in wellbeing programs. The ADAPT program is three programs in one:
A series of specific, focused & timely Edu-sessions targeting critical pressure points for employee health when working in isolation or remote areas.
One on one Health e-Coaching sessions deployed via video or telephone conferencing. The sessions use our tried and tested self-efficacy building, behaviour change process.
To further enable participants to implement the changes necessary for greater health & vitality participants have access to a range of online supportive resources.
The aim of the virtual education sessions is to support employees gain the knowledge, skills and capability to be aware of, manage & adapt to the changing relationship between work, home and health.
We build a schedule of targeted sessions that focus on target areas specific to your people and the challenges they are facing. Each session includes a call to action relative to the focus topic and integrates with the health e-coaching sessions to support the change process.
Two delivery options are available:
Launch: Program welcome and outline. Expectations and outcomes. How has life changed? Health Hackers: critical factors likely to impact the way we eat, move, sleep & smile
My Response: How do we respond. Why am I responding the way that I am? What happens when we are forced to change? Is my response healthy or harmful?
My Ergonomics: What has changed? Does the home need the same ergonomic quality as work? Is that likely? How do we make the most of what we have while still being safe? Personal strategies for managing balanced movement patterns
My Movement: As more of us move to new working arrangements, the day to day opportunities for movement along with our favourite ways of getting some huff ‘n puff disappear. Working from home is often more sedentary than your traditional place of work. As always, there are opportunities to move; we just need to recognise them.
My Food: How does my environment influence my eating habits? Many of us are finding ourselves with new routines, new working environments. This combination can be fraught with danger when it comes to over nourishing. Yet it also has many opportunities for getting more out of your nutrition.
Connect & disconnect: This new era can influence our social connections in two ways. On the one hand, we are spending more time than ever with loved ones or friends (shared houses), often in close proximity. This can put a load on our relationships. On the other hand, our ability to connect with others in traditional ways has ended overnight. How do we manage this contrast in our social connections?
My Mind: How do we create space for a healthy mind: as work environments change, so to do the opportunities for reflection, mindfulness, planning & time out. Those moments still exist, we just need to find them
My purpose: It’s easy to lose a sense of purpose as the world changes around us. Our values can be challenged, what we once thought important fades and our sense of meaning & value might be challenged. Goals are often an antidote for a lost sense of control.
Utilising the latest behaviour change and habit formation science, the Health e-Coaching sessions are founded in our tried and tested self-efficacy building, behaviour change process. They are designed to support employees to recognise how the relationships between work, home and health have changed and to build evidence-based and effective strategies to maintain or regain control of their wellbeing.
Participants work through their readiness, willingness and ableness to change. Objectives are set and action plans are developed, progress is tracked via the HealthStyle Hub.
Our consultants are qualified allied health professionals who are highly skilled in metabolic disease management, functional conditioning for musculoskeletal disorders and possess exceptional motivational and behaviour change skills.
The admirable coach adds value to the participant by contributing information, energy and direction that assists the individual to commit to more and more exacting behaviours.
To further enable participants to implement the changes necessary for greater health & vitality, participants have access to a range of supportive online resources.
These can include:
Twitter: Updates on what we have read, heard or found to do with health and lifestyle change
Facebook: meeting place for those who want to ask questions, talk about their health improvement story or what they thought of their HealthStyle experience.
