Why promote healthy eating at work?
Company benefits – productivity and performance
Workplace health promotion is important for the wellbeing of your employees. However, it can also give productivity levels a boost too. Apart from being lower in calories than the usual office snack, fruit and eating healthy at work impacts positively on business performance.
