Wellness can be defined as the condition of optimal physical and mental health, when maintained by a balanced nutritious diet, exercise and smoke-free living. The objective of wellness interventions within the corporate sector is to provide nutritional knowledge to employees in order to empower them to improve nutrition and lifestyle habits. Chronic diseases impact people in their “working” years, reducing productivity and increasing costs. More companies are investing in employee health today to promote long-term behavioural changes that will benefit employers, employees and communities. For successful wellness programs in workplace settings, a strong focus must be placed on integrating healthy environments through health promotion and screening. Such interventions have been shown to; improve employee health, decision making ability, loyalty and employee morale, while reducing the effects of absenteeism, employee stress, workforce turn over and organizational conflict.
Sustainable employee wellness programs create a healthier organizational culture and have a significant impact on employee health. This makes wellness interventions a “win-win” solution for all stakeholders. Nutritional Solutions dietitians are able to provide companies with a tailor made wellness solution that will improve the dietary and lifestyle behaviours of employees and ultimately improve their health, wellbeing and quality of life in the future.
