HOW IS DR. ROX DIFFERENT FROM LARGE EMPLOYEE WELLNESS COMPANIES?
EXPERIENCE, EXPERTISE, ENTHUSIASM
Most companies contracted to manage and implement employee wellness services and programs hire individuals with a bachelor’s degree in a health-related field and then train them in health behavior change principles. On the contrary, Dr. Rox has spent her entire career as a passionate health behavior change agent. She has 19 years in the field of health promotion and holds a PhD in Health Psychology- the study of health behavior change. In addition to a Health Coaching Certification, she also possess an undergraduate degree in Health Education and a Masters degree in Health Care Administration.
APPROACH: Awareness vs Behavior Change
Most programs focus mostly on creating awareness and not as much on the processes involved in fostering actual health behavior changes. Employees are already AWARE of the ill effects of smoking, chronic stress, poor eating habits and being overweight. Employees need interventions which apply the psychological principles of health BEHAVIOR CHANGE to help them build healthier and happier lives. And, to be frank, awareness does not reduce health care costs or improve quality of life; actual behavior change does!
Allowing Dr. Rox to apply the psychological principles of BEHAVIOR CHANGE, pair them with her passion, enthusiasm and extensive background will facilitate sustainable healthy behavior changes in your workforce!
