In this session you will learn how employees' eating habits and what they eat can have significant impact on their performance. This can be in employee attendance, productivity, performance, effectiveness, quality of work and retention.

Research shows the impact this has in the workplace:

  1. Employers will lose approximately 25% in staff productivity every month due to poor food choices., not to mention the impact on mental health and wellbeing.
  2. The burden of ill health through food counts for approximately 10% of UK absence rates from work.
  3. The ongoing Cost of Living Crisis is impacting employees significantly. As prices rise, salaries are not keeping up leading to financial stress. Food is not a priority as a financial outgoing. 
  4. Poor food choices impacts physical and mental wellbeing.
