11 May, Berlin / CoachHub, the leading digital coaching platform, has announced the launch
of its new mental health coaching programme, CoachHub Wellbeing, a specialist mental
health coaching programme designed to improve employee wellbeing across the global
workforce. As businesses recover from a year of turmoil and prepare for a return to the
office, this new wellbeing offering will help businesses prioritise mental health support for
Poor mental health is the number one cause of long-term sickness absence in the workforce
(CIPD 2018), costing employers up to £42 billion a year in absenteeism, presenteeism, and
staff turnover (Deloitte 2017). Following the upheaval of the Covid-19 pandemic and the
corresponding rising rates of anxiety and depression, it’s vital that companies engage in
proactive measures to prevent burnout and stress from becoming the next pandemic to hit
CoachHub Wellbeing has been developed to support employees across the full spectrum of
mental health to maximise wellbeing. Working in tandem with CoachHub’s traditional
business coaching, the programme aims to prevent and reduce the likelihood of mental
ill-health, by providing a framework for people to discuss their individual issues with a
highly-trained professional who will work with them to develop coping mechanisms tailored
How CoachHub Wellbeing works
Following a comprehensive mental health assessment, participants are matched to one of
CoachHub’s expert and professionally certified coaches. All coaches in the CoachHub
Wellbeing programme are specialists in wellbeing provision, with many holding advanced
counselling or therapy qualifications. CoachHub’s proprietary AI technology matches each
participant with the best coach for their individual needs, ensuring that all support is implicitly
tailored and personalised.
CoachHub’s global reach ensures that multilingual sessions can be offered across markets;
with 2,500+ certified business coaches in 60 countries, operating across six continents and
in over 50 languages. Where required, participants can also be matched specifically with
coaches specialising in D&I support.
Coachees work with their coach via bi-weekly sessions, focusing on topics such as
emotional resilience, compassionate leadership, and stress management, as required by the
individual. The self-directed learning approach empowers the coachee to help themselves
and realise their full potential, incorporating positive psychology methods to strengthen
existing skills and attributes.
Disclosure is the biggest barrier many employees face when tackling mental health issues in
the workplace, and confidentiality is at the core of CoachHub Wellbeing. Employees can
speak freely in the knowledge that coaches are independent of their organisation, whilst the
company can receive fully anonymised aggregate data for use in examining and improving
the overall mental health of their teams.
The programme also provides a broad library of accompanying materials to support the
coachee’s ongoing mental health development, including micro learnings, group discussion
circles, and webinars.
Yannis Niebelschütz, co-founder and CEO of CoachHub, said: “The past year has seen a
much-needed increase in recognising the importance of supporting mental health and
wellbeing in the workplace. With the launch of CoachHub Wellbeing, we’re meeting the
skyrocketing demand for personalised, tailored, and ongoing mental wellbeing training, with
a focus on empowering coachees with the tools for self-sufficient growth and development.
“Our unique technology and world-leading in-house Coaching Lab gives us the expertise to
deliver this programme to an exceptionally high standard, and we are excited to be part of
the journey towards improving mental health for the leaders of the future.”
Professor Jonathan Passmore, leading coaching psychologist, researcher and author, said,
“Scientific research has consistently proven the positive impact of coaching for individuals.
During periods of organisational change or simply as part creating healthier workplaces,
companies should leverage wellbeing coaching to help staff cope with the challenges of
change, and enable their staff to deliver to their best. As we begin the return to the office,
employers should be planning how they can leverage coaching to support staff through this
transition and to flourish in the new normal.”
