Working from home has a lot of perks. But it also comes with some sacrifices, including the less-than-ideal ergonomic setup compared to what you had at the office. Talk about taking a toll on your body, including your posture. While employees adjust to a “new normal” of working from home, some companies are looking for ways to improve their employees’ health and wellbeing in an easy and accessible way. And that’s just what Bay Area-based startup, Codefresh, thought when they offered TaskHuman to their staff.

It was his stiff back and body from computer work that drove Codefresh employee, Peter DiFonzo, to give TaskHuman a try. After all, he had unlimited minutes to use with 1-on-1 live wellness coaches via video call, thanks to his employer.

Here are Peter’s 3 reasons for diving into TaskHuman:

1. It’s easy to find compatible providers.

Since TaskHuman offers FREE consultation calls with every provider, you have a risk-free way of learning which coaches are the right fit for you. These initial calls help coaches understand your pain points, and allow you to get a feel for their personality and approach.

For Peter, it quickly became clear that fitness and strength coach, Ariel Hoffman, was someone he wanted to continue working with.

Ariel’s expertise assured him that she would be able to address his stiff body and painful back with sensitivity. He also recognized that working with her would be a nice counterpart to working with his local physical therapist.

TaskHuman’s pool of vetted providers means you have world-class coaches ready to work with you, right in your back pocket—literally.

2. It’s easy to practice good social habits.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Peter is practicing social distancing. TaskHuman allows Peter to find relief for his back issues while maintaining the suggested guidelines for social distancing.

“I finally got tired of waking up stiff and not getting a good night’s sleep and wanted to do something about it,” Peter says.

He explains here:

Knowing TaskHuman providers are available in just a few taps of your mobile devices gives you room to schedule 1-on-1 video calls with live coaches around your schedule. It means you can move seamlessly from working to working out to parenting without losing travel time.

It means there’s no reason not to work on your wellness.

Peter explains:

The pandemic has taken a lot from most people. Social contact is one of them.

For Peter, working with Coach Ariel allows him to have safe social interactions while building a real relationship with a new person.

“The coaching has been awesome,” Peter says.

Listen to him describe the situation:

TaskHuman providers don’t just see you as a client, they see you as a determined individual who is working toward your goals. They want to give you the attention, connection and expertise to move forward on your wellness journey.

“It’s almost as if you’re talking to a friend,” Peter says.

TaskHuman coaches are dedicated to putting people first.

3. It’s easy to make progress.

TaskHuman coaches work hard to make sure you make progress toward your goals – whatever they may be. They know how to break your goals down into manageable, attainable benchmarks. And they know how to push you through the difficult times.

This high-level, in-depth knowledge means that providers know how to scaffold their coaching to meet each client where they are.

“I’m confident TaskHuman coaches can get me to where I want to go,” says Peter.

Peter describes his quick success:

Progress is multi-dimensional too. When clients see improvement in the initial area they used TaskHuman for, it regularly encourages them to work on other areas of their lives with the help of TaskHuman coaches, too.

It’s the idea that success breeds success. The hard work and resilience built to reach the first goal translates into determination in another area.

Listen as Peter explains:

More and more companies are partnering with TaskHuman to provide the boundless wellness benefits to their employees. But sometimes people are still hesitant to reach out for that first call.

“If you’re hesitant, just do it,” Peter says. “You will be glad you did.”

The benefits are high and the risks are non-existent.
