We all know that what we eat and drink can affect upon our long term health, but it can also have an affect upon our daily performance. What your employees eat for breakfast and their lunchtime choices will have either a positive or negative impact upon their blood sugar balance which in turn will have a direct impact upon their energy levels, mood, concentration and, ultimately, their productivity levels for the rest of the day. According to a study by Brigham Young University, the impact of diet on productivity can be as high as 66%, the impact of not exercising regularly 50%. Yet nutrition is often overlooked when considering the factors that affect employee performance.
We are all working longer and harder, so it's hardly surprising that stress is cited as the most common cause of long-term absence and the second most common cause of short-term absence.

Just some simple diet and lifestyle adjustments can have a positive outcome upon your employees' physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.
