Hungry Employees = Unproductive Employees
In today’s hectic Business-World of crazy workloads, deadlines and distractions, did you know your employees eating choices could be affecting their performance? And, what can employers do about it?
While it can be easy to pass this responsibility onto your staff, activities like:
- getting just one more email off
- trying to catch a colleague before they go on leave
- submitting that report before the deadline
- being called into unscheduled meetings…
…can all cause an employee to make a poor food choice, or skip a snack or meal altogether.
It’s these situations when the, “I’d better eat something” thinking often occurs, along with, “something is better than nothing”. However, these decisions when followed by high caffeine beverages, and low nutritional meals, including correct serves of fruit and vegetables, often reduce concentration, creativity and productivity.
Few options, and poor food choices throughout the day,
can lead to mid-afternoon slumps.
With plenty of evidence available about how poor health and diet can lead to a decrease in concentration, an increase in errors, and higher stress levels, more and more employers are being asked to provide better support to their employees.
Helping your staff reach their health and fitness goals, plus encouraging well-being can create a flow-on effect to your bottom line.
While there are a number of factors that are accredited to increasing productivity in the workplace, businesses who are adopting a healthier philosophy and culture that helps employees engage in balanced, nutritious eating options are reaping the rewards.
