Why is nutrition important for your workforce?
The health and wellbeing of a company’s workforce underpins that organisation’s success.
Our Corporate Nutrition Programme can bring many benefits. By changing what and how your staff eat and drink, can help:
- Reduces absenteeism
- Increases productivity and effectiveness
- Assists in recruitment and retention
- Improves employee motivation and morale
- Reduces stress
- Improves overall health and wellbeing with a host of wider benefits
- Shows the workforce that the company cares enough to invest in preventive health care.
- Ultimately reduces the human and financial cost of ill-health.
Specialist advice and coaching on nutrition and lifestyle change is a very powerful tool to enable individuals to optimise their potential (in health and performance terms), which ultimately improves their organisation’s productivity and success.

Corporate Health Days
Nutrition health days
These are on-site drop-in events for staff, covering nutrition-related issues such as deciphering food labels; product tasting; and healthy food demonstrations (eg ‘healthy food on- the-run’; ‘breakfasts to power you through the day’). They also allow short 15 minute taster ‘diet checks’ or consultations with our nutritionist.

Food consultancy service: Improving staff canteen services
The lunchtime meal determines how employees will work and perform during the afternoon. Over a longer timescale, canteen offerings can influence key health indicators such as brain function, mood, energy, weight, blood pressure, disease risk and overall health and productivity. Providing healthy eating options can positively affect all of these.
This package includes a nutritional audit of your corporate canteen’s offerings, with suggestions on how menus can be improved to optimise employees’ health and wellbeing.
