4 – HEALTHY EATING AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
When we’re busy at work, a fast-food lunch or reaching for the biscuits is often the easy choice and too often unhealthy food is the quickest to grab on the go.
As employers, we have the opportunity to positively influence the eating habits of our staff and the role it has in overall health and wellbeing.
Equally, workplace interventions can postively influence the level of physical activity by staff both in and out of the workplace, which is turn will have a positive impact on overall health and wellbeing, productivity, absenteeism and motivation.
