What is a Corporate Nutrition Program?
Corporate nutrition programs are programs that are customized for your company employees to educate and assist them to eat better and make healthier lifestyle choices. Business owners and managers know that by providing corporate nutrition programs for their employees, they can reduce absenteeism, lower company costs, and increase productivity. Corporate nutrition programs help workers learn and implement proper eating habits and a healthy lifestyle, reducing the incidence of illness and fatigue among your workforce. Nutrition programs also increase employees’ sense of wellbeing, and makes employees feel valued and appreciated by the company. Studies have demonstrated that workers who enjoy healthier lifestyles also work harder, perform better, and miss work less often. By sponsoring a corporate nutrition program, you will be performing a great service, not only to your company, but also to your staff: encouraging your employees to take charge of their health.
Many companies spend thousands of dollars on employee health expenses. Don’t be one of them! Remember: Preventive care is the best, and cheapest, cure! Don’t let the cost of poor employee health habits fritter away at your profits. Be proactive–invest in preventive health care for your team today!
