Today, savvy business leaders rely on sound strategies for improving productivity that directly and positively influence their bottom line. Addressing thewell-being of their most important asset, their employees, represents a key strategic advantage for many companies.
Absenteeism and the recognition of presenteeism not only has significant and detrimental impact on business productivity, it places considerable strain on any organization’s ability to meet customer commitments and expectations.
Fact: Healthy employees deliver better results
Traditionally, employee initiatives have focused on physical safety and investments in comprehensive medical plans which largely address symptoms of illness. Recently there has been a focus on lifestyle related practices such as workplace wellness, nutrition and ergonomics e.g. the study of how a workplace and the equipment used there can best be designed for comfort, safety, efficiency, and productivity.
Despite the focus on workplace ergonomics, the single most influential aspect on an employee and their ability to perform optimally is good nutrition.
