Make employee health your business
Sugar is in almost 80% of our food supply, with many Australians consuming in excess of 14 teaspoons of added sugar a day. The World Health Organization recommends just six.
Food high in added sugar is increasingly being linked to impaired energy, cognition, learning and mood.
Given most Australians spend about one-third of their life at work, it’s no surprise the workplace directly influences the physical, mental, economic and social wellbeing of employees. This can have a broader effect on their families and society.
The reality is that healthy eating is not only crucial for maintaining your health but also for maximising work productivity – making workplace wellness an investment in your people and the bottom line. Research has revealed that employees who consume an unhealthy diet are 66% more likely to experience a loss in productivity compared to those who’s diet consists of mostly whole fresh foods.
In our experience, when it comes to workplace wellness, organisations generally struggle to apply a one size fits all approach, given varied literacy, fitness and health levels of their employee base.
