Encouraging staff to eat and be healthy is not just better for them, it can also have benefits for the whole business. This isn’t pseudoscience, there are growing trends and statistics in this area. Healthier people have less time off sick, which means they spend more days in the office doing what they are being paid for. It also has the added benefit that you don’t have to do the HR admin!
You can promote this as part of your culture, you don’t have to force it down people’s throats! Simple things can help:
- Get a company fruit bowel for your staff
- Arrange some healthy eating talks
- Negotiate a staff discount to gyms or exercise classes.
All of these are perks of working for a caring company. It is a win/win for the employee and for the business.
