Keeping Your Employees Healthy
On average, testing reveals approximately 30 percent of your workforce will be at moderate or high risk for health problems.
This number fluctuates depending on the age and gender of the group, however the typical breakdown is 20 percent moderate risk and 10 percent at high risk for health problems.
CieloStar offers Health Coaching Programs. These programs encompass a vast range of wellness services including a “Personal Health Profile,” which is a personalized report highlighting ways to improve the way your employees look and feel, plus a private health coach to help employees make health changes.
Health coaches lead regular trainings and follow our proprietary Behavior Change Guide specifically developed for health management and lifestyle behavior change. All programs follow a three-step process, which identify the member’s stage of change, deliver key messages and open-ended inquiry, and focus on specific measures to help create change.
Developing Healthy Lifestyles
Our program is educationally based and focused on encouraging employees to adopt sustainable healthy lifestyle changes.
This process ensures a consistent approach, yet allows and encourages individual differences, thereby ensuring a higher rate of participant success.
We collaborate with the client to determine the most appropriate interventions. Our coaches develop a personal wellness plan that is tailored to each member’s unique situation, stage of readiness, underlying motivation to change, and personal health status. Participants receive education materials that specifically address their concerns, interests and goals. Follow-up techniques and timing are tailored based on the members’ specific circumstances, and each session with the coach is unique.
- Assess an individual for certain levels of risk for disease/medical conditions
- View individual scores for lifestyle choices such as tobacco, weight, exercise, safety, and prevention
- Review preventive care compliance to determine if the participant is up to date for various preventive care procedures
Each eligible member is offered the opportunity to work with a health coach on goals as determined by the member and his or her coach until such time as the participant is no longer making progress or no longer requires maintenance support.

Research has shown that offering flu shots can save employers approximately $115 in sick leave for each employee that participates in the program. These savings result from reduced absenteeism and lost production time.
If you have at least 30 employees who are interested in flu shots, CieloStar can conduct an on-site clinic. We can work with multiple locations and have technicians nationwide to service you.
We offer simple online scheduling for a smooth and efficient process.
