Workplace Health and Wellness

I personally worked in a corporate job for over 10 years with a multi million dollar company in sales and marketing. I know all too well the long days at the office, eating lunch out or at your desk, going straight from work to a business dinner, feeling like you have no time to workout or no time for yourself. Its easy to get lost in the world of work and put nutrition, self care and overall whole being wellness on the back burner in order to land that next client, meet a last minute deadline or snag that big PO. I get it. 

The thing is that poor nutrition, stress and lack of physical activity lead to being tired at work, low productivity and energy and potentially more sick days and even illness or disease. Absenteeism costs companies billions of dollars a year and employee health and benefit related spending is on the rise. 

Implementing a Corporate Nutrition and Wellness Program for your company will give your team the tools and motivation to feel and perform their best - a win win for everyone.  

A Healthy ROI

Healthy employees create a healthier bottom line. 

Good nutrition not only helps your employees maintain a healthy body weight but it also has a huge impact on focus, mood, energy levels and stress. Unhealthy eating is linked with over 60% increased loss in productivity. It is proven that healthy employees and workplace cultures have better productivity, performance and engagement - and it totally makes sense, you know how personally productive you are when you feel your best - imagine your entire team feeling and performing like that every day.

Not only will a Nutrition and Wellness Program increase performance and profits, its also an amazing way to show your team that you truly care about and appreciate them. You are helping your employees in a meaningful way that will have a positive impact on their lives for the better and trickle down to their family and home life - a true lifelong benefit. 

A healthy workplace is also very attractive to new hires. Top prospects are looking for the "whole package" - they want to know what else you offer aside from basic compensation. Having a Nutrition and Wellness Program shows your company is forward thinking and gives you an edge over the competition. 

How does the program work?

Traditional employee health plans focus on "Sick Care" - what the company pays for and helps employees with if they get sick, need medication or need time off for a physical or mental illness. 

What if you changed that thinking and focussed more on "Health Care" - implementing a program that teaches your team the tools to living healthy therefore preventing many sick days, illness and disease. Healthy and happy employees are productive, motivated and will rise to their full potential. 

Each company is different and therefore each Corporate Wellness program is created specifically based on your company's culture and team. We meet with your team and company to set goals and put together an action plan custom to your needs and timelines.
