Employee Performance

People who feel physically and emotionally well are more productive. They’re able to focus better, make important decisions and feel more motivated - all of which boost their productivity, and therefore overall performance of your business.

 

Retention and Recruitment

Workplaces that prioritise health and wellbeing are far more attractive to potential employees, and can help retain existing employees. Businesses that show they value the health and wellbeing of their team have lower turnover rates, reduced recruitment costs, and employees who are much more likely to stay and recommend the business to other people.

 

Reduce Absence

Healthy employees are much less likely to need to take time off sick or time off for medical appointments. High levels of absence in your business can reduce workplace morale, increase workload and stress on other employees, and reduce overall productivity of your business.

questionnaire to reveal where you’re thriving and where slight improvements can be made within your daily habits. Not only will you discuss practical tips you can easily add into your daily routine, but you’ll receive an easy to understand summary report afterwards too. 

Take a look at some of the essential reasons why you should invest in supporting your team’s wellbeing.

Engagement and Morale

A workplace that prioritises health and wellbeing has higher employee engagement and morale. When employees feel cared and valued, they’re likely to be more enthusiastic and motivated, leading to increased productivity and innovation.

 

Reduced Stress and Burnout

Prioritising workplace wellbeing can help reduce stress and prevent burnout. Long-term stress and burnout can result in high levels of absence, reduced productivity, and increased turnover rates - all of which negatively impact the productivity of your business.

 

Healthcare Costs

By demonstrating to insurance providers that you’re taking a proactive approach to look after your employee’s health and wellbeing, you may be able to negotiate better health insurance costs.

 

Increase Reputation

Businesses that offer health and wellbeing support have better reputations, both with existing and potential employees and customers. By speaking up about the initiatives your workplace offers, you can attract customers who value socially responsible businesses.

What role does food and nutrition
play in health and wellbeing?

The food choices your team members make can have a major influence on their overall health and wellbeing, and therefore their ability to be productive within your business.

 

Given the many hours your team spends working within the business, a large proportion of the food they eat is consumed during working hours. Busy schedules can often result in skipping meals, choosing unhealthy convenience options or rushing mealtimes. All of which doesn’t fuel the body with the nutrients it needs to thrive.

 

Take a look below at just a few of the ways that food and nutrition can influence health and wellbeing.

Energy Levels

Choosing the right foods can prevent that well known 3pm afternoon slump. Food choices can influence energy levels, and therefore employee motivation and productivity. Employees with sustained, high energy levels throughout the day are able to focus for prolonged periods of time and have better work outputs as a result. Simple meal and snack additions or swaps can make a major difference here.

 

Support Good Digestion

The types of food eaten and the way in which they’re eaten can impact bowel movements, gut bacteria composition and overall digestive function. Digestive issues, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are becoming increasingly common. In fact, 10-20% of the UK have IBS. Symptoms can include unpredictable bowel movements, stomach pain and uncomfortable bloating. The taboo nature of digestive issues can result in shame, anxiety and reduced self esteem, potentially causing any affected employees to withdraw from engaging with your team. Practising good food and eating habits can help manage IBS and other digestive symptoms.

 

Chronic Disease Prevention

Health conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome are largely preventable through dietary and lifestyle habits. Yet, the prevalence of these conditions is still very apparent. In fact, according to the British Heart Foundation (2024) at least 50% of the UK will experience a heart or circulatory problem in their lifetime. People with these health conditions may need to take regular time off work to attend medical appointments, reducing their productivity. Simple dietary and lifestyle changes can reduce risk factors for these conditions, such as insulin resistance, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

 

Strengthen the Immune System

A strong immune system is vital to fighting off infections and illnesses, and reducing the need for time off work. Nutrients, such as vitamin A and C and zinc are just a few of the nutrients involved in supporting the immune system.

 

Supporting Mental Function

Nutrients can have a wide range of effects on cognitive function and emotional wellbeing. From supporting concentration and memory, to the ability to learn and manage mood, food additions and swaps can contribute towards positive mental health.

 

Improved Sleep

Poor quality and quantity of sleep can have knock on effects throughout the day. When someone is feeling exhausted, they’re likely to be less productive and make poorer food choices, which then leads to subsequent poor sleep that night, and the cycle continues. By intervening and tweaking dietary and lifestyle habits, the cycle can be broken, and a good night’s sleep can be had, leading to a new lease of energy and productivity.

Lucy delivered a webinar for Nutrition Graduates in August regarding how to deliver nutrition workshops. Lucy was engaging, informative and delivered a webinar that was easy to follow and understand. I’d thoroughly recommend her services as she not only delivered an outstanding webinar, but her communication throughout the whole process was faultless. The feedback we received was so positive and we hope to have Lucy on our webinars again soon!
