A Key Component of Corporate Wellness Programs: Food Wellness

July 18, 2019

The workplace could, sometimes, be a difficult place to eat well. We spend a lot of their waking hours in the workplace, therefore, work-life and activities at work have a huge impact on our lives. Employers, therefore, can seize the opportunity to improve employee health in a significant way.

There are enormously long and short-term benefits of excellent food wellness programs and initiatives developed in the workplace. Ultimately, such initiatives will promote increased workplace productivity and a positive corporate culture.

Short-term benefits of promoting food wellness for employees include improved sleep cycles, reduced anxiety and stress, improved mood and energy, and reduced risk of some chronic diseases such as heart disease and stroke.

All of these benefits cumulate in promoting better interpersonal relationships, free flow of work between departments, and improved employee performance. In a climate where healthcare costs are rising dramatically and where health crisis is growing, there is a need for employers to state simple, yet, vital steps in promoting a culture of health in the workplace.
