CONNECT WITH ANGELA

(707) 561-2229

I am located in Eugene, but can work virtually.  I am always looking to connect and network with others interested in my services.  I am especially interested in working with  professionals in the health and wellness fields as well as those who work with children in schools, daycare, and sports and hobbies.  I am willing to travel if services are requested.

WORKPLACE WELLNESS

Did you know that you can increase productivity, reduce absenteeism, retain your best employees, and maybe even lower the cost of health insurance, when you offer wellness programs?  However, many businesses with wellness programs simply provide an on-site gym, after hours fitness classes, or pay for an employee's gym membership.  This is a step in the right direction, but there is more to keeping your employees healthy than trying to keep them moving.  

 

In fact, in a recent study conducted by United Health Care, while 70% of companies offer wellness programs to help employees improve their heath, 64% of employees underestimate the value of wellness-related incentives.  This means that U.S. companies spend an average $742 per employee per year that are not being used.  Also, while 59% of employees say company wellness programs have improved their health, 63% are unwilling to devote more than an hour a day to improve their well-being.

If you are tired of the same old programs you have tried, year after year, and lack personnel to develop a new program, consider bringing L.E.A.N. presentations, services, or workshops to your workplace.  Affordable, interactive, turn-key programs that can be customized for either small businesses or large corporations.

Here are the top three groups of employees that are considered the most liability for a company:

Pregnancy is the largest single health claim for many employers.  It is also the leading cause of disability and turnover.  Wellness programs should focus on both mother and baby before, during, and after pregnancy.  These programs can benefit not only the mom and new baby, but also significantly reduce healthcare costs, which can be ten times higher for babies born premature.

Dr. Sears L.E.A.N. Expectations is available for groups or individuals who are expecting or new to motherhood.  Participants will learn about:

  • Nutrition during pregnancy

  • Healthy lifestyle choices

  • Safe and effective physical activities

  • Stress reduction techniques

Research shows women who practice healthy behaviors during pregnancy generally have fewer complications, an easier delivery and healthier babies.  Click here to find out more about L.E.A.N. Expectations services and workshops.

Families represent a majority of the workforce today, and employees with children have significantly more absenteeism and presenteeism than those without children.  Poor eating habits and a lack of good nutrition are major contributors to sickness and disease in both adults and children.  

Dr. Sears L.E.A.N. Start and L.E.A.N. Essentials  workshops are for groups or individuals with children, or who are planning to start a family.  Employees and their families will experience:

  • Fewer sick days and less time away from work or school
