Workplace Health and Wellness

  1. 1. Corporate Wellness Program for Employees Tuesday September 18, 2018
  2. 2.  Consider starting a corporate wellness program for your employees? Well, the reason is really quite simple.  The healthier your employees are, the more productive they will be. In addition, keeping your employees fit and trim can also be good for your business.  Here's why –
  3. 3.  A corporate wellness program reduces absenteeism.  Studies show that people who exercise once or twice a week and those who exercise for more than three times a week have 43% and 26% fewer absences, respectively, as compared to non-exercisers.  Healthy employees are more productive. According to the results of a recent research, healthy employees are about 3.1 times more productive as compared to those who are not.
  4. 4.  I translates lower health care costs  Workers compensation and disability management claims cost  Every dollar spent on a sound wellness program, can save about $3.27 on company's medical costs.  It can increase productivity.  Healthy employees are about 3.1 times more productive as compared to those who are not.  Of course you need to money to put a corporate wellness program in place but the benefits are really well worth it.
  5. 5.  Sedentary life style ▪ Stressed environments ▪ Longer work hours ▪ More transportation ▪ Less physical activities  Obesity climbing ▪ Lifestyle diseases  Week is getting longer I need to simplify” ▪ “ I am too stressed” ▪ “ I just need more hrs in the day”  Technology is introducing new health concerns  Employee stress levels are high and climbing  Today’s generation of children may be the first in modern history to live shorter lives than their parents
  6. 6.  It’s no secret that Americans have gotten much, much bigger over the past few decades. The signs are all around us, from XXXL clothing sizes to supersize movie seats and even larger coffins.  According to an analysis from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the average American man now stands at 5-feet-9 1/4 inches tall and weighs 196 pounds — up 15 pounds from 20 years ago.  For women, the change has been even more striking:  The average female today stands 5-feet-3 3/4 inches and weighs 169 pounds. In 1994, her scale read 152 pounds
  7. 7.  Americans are cooking less and less and eating away from home more and more. And that’s leading us to chow down more than we would if we were home.  More than half of our food dollars are now being spent on restaurants and convenient on-the-go meals. In 2017, for the first time, Americans spent more money eating away from home than they did on groceries.  Sure, it’s possible to have a small, healthy meal at a restaurant. But researchers have found that people typically eat 20 to 40 percent more calories in restaurants compared with what they’d eat at home.
  8. 8.  When we eat out, we’re not being served modest plates. The average restaurant meal today is more than four times the size of typical 1950s fare, according to the CDC.  These supersize portions are reflected in our daily calorie intake. The average American’s total caloric intake grew from 2,109 calories in 1970 to 2,768 calories in 2016.  As Pew Research put it, that’s "the equivalent of an extra 12 oz. steak sandwich every day."
  9. 9.  People who drink soda have more obesity, Type 2 diabetes, tooth decay, and other health problems compared with people who don't -- the research on this is clear.  Americans are drinking way, way too much of the sweet stuff, along with alcohol empty calories  According to Euromonitor’s most recent data, Americans remain the world leaders when it comes to per capita sales of soft and energy drinks.
  10. 10.  The federal government recommends 1 1/2 to 2 cups of fruit and 2 to 3 cups of vegetables per day. According to the CDC, Americans in every state barely hit these minimum targets.  Fewer than 10 percent of American adults ate enough vegetables in 2013. Fewer than 15 percent consumed the recommended amount of fruit.  The Americans who aren’t eating broccoli don’t have a vendetta against it. Instead, there is a range of economic and social factors that make eating enough fruits and vegetables really hard.
  11. 11.  To make things more complicated, there’s a supply problem. We’re told to eat nutrient-dense foods like broccoli and Brussels sprouts instead of energy-dense foods like soda and French fries, yet there aren’t enough nutrient-dense foods to go around.  Researchers have pointed out that if Americans actually followed the US dietary guidelines and started to eat the volume and variety of produce health officials recommend, we wouldn’t have nearly enough to meet consumer demand.  As of 2013, potatoes and tomatoes made up half of the legumes and vegetables available in this country, according to the US Department of Agriculture.  And when we do eat tomatoes and potatoes, they’re often accompanied by so much sugar, fat, and salt that we’re propelled to overeat.
  12. 12.  Breakfast is often nothing more than disguised dessert. And we keep eating sugar throughout the day — in cupcakes, soda, even salad dressing.  So many of the additional calories in our diet that weren’t there a few decades ago are coming in the form of sugar.  Back in 1977, the average adult got 228 calories per day from sugar in food and drinks.  By 2010, it was up to 300 calories a day. Added sugar consumption increased almost as much — 20 percent — among kids.
  13. 13.  Sugary, oily foods are engineered to be consumed often and in big portions. But we’re not just influenced by their irresistible taste.  The food industry is also terrific at marketing its products to us — and turning us into loyal consumers.  A 2013 report by the Institute of Medicine helped establish how the rise in obesity among kids corresponds to increasing marketing of unhealthy food and drinks to them.  Since then, public health researchers have tracked food advertising — and have discovered how in some ways, this problem just keeps getting worse.
  14. 14.  "Learning to cook is the most empowering thing you can do for your health”.  Our cooking classes will help you in ingredients selections and cooking skills, to minimize fat and sugar intake while maintaining weight in place.  There is nothing better than to have control on what you eat and the amount….Stomachs have no gauge
  15. 15.  We pride ourselves on providing nutrition support and food education services.  We believe that it is through "The Knowledge of Food" that it is possible to achieve great BMI, healthy lifestyle and nutritional controlled body.  Our nutritionist will guide you through a fun program to follow, with specific parameters designed for you.
  16. 16.  Your healthy weight loss success starts here. Find your motivation and go all in.  We’re with you all the way. Our members don’t just lose weight. They gain confidence, strength, community, relationships, shared goals and good habits.  Of course a solid fitness program, paired with great food does the work.
  17. 17.  We guide you through the art of shopping healthy. In the age of industrial pre-packaged meals Label Reading is fundamental.  We educate you on ingredients knowledge, sources, growing territories and savings, while purchasing the best products for your goals.  Eat what is you, your culture, background and the genetics of your family
  18. 18.  We help you to set up your healthy recipe bank.  Tested in our kitchens and labs our recipes are adapted to minimize cooking time, with recognizable nutritional ingredients and overall success in every bite, while discovering new flavors and palate education.  Learn the science of food through cooking!
  19. 19.  We have extensive knowledge in the fields of Diabetes and Celiac conditions, glycemic index as well as overall ingredients and food allergies.  Through personal experiences, diet modifications and additional factors we have been able to control health concerns, control clinical conditions while providing our members a full-balanced lifestyle.
  20. 20.  Create healthy office cookbook….great fundraiser  Healthy office snacks  Bring in chef for teaching easy-manageable recipes  Offer almond milk in addition to other dairy options  Debunk common healthy eating myths……learn no to trust the next trend. Research, research, research.  Monthly healthy potluck  Standing desks  Visit farmer’s markets for lunch  Community supported agriculture  Biometric screening for staff  Hold a health fair twice a year  Smoking cessation incentives  Flu shots reminders
  21. 21.  Survey employees on the health progress  Subsidize personal health development books & courses  Share personal goals on a whiteboard  Offer yoga classes for stress release  Participate in a 5K run event  Offer corporate T-shirts with “health” as the slogan  Offer standing meetings  Hold a fitness challenge  Offer discounts at local gym  8 glasses of water a day test challenge  Healthy cooking challenge  Turn empty office to  “No Work allowed”
  22. 22.  Reduce health insurance premiums for employees who are extra active.  Offer to subsidize a set amount of an employee’s insurance premium when they log a certain number of exercise hours each month. There are also several apps and services in the digital health marketplace that can help employers ensure that their workforce is adopting and keeping new, healthy habits.  Use holidays as an excuse to get healthy and fit  The holidays always seem to be an excuse to eat food that’s not good for us.  Instead of the traditional junk food, offer green juices/smoothies on St. Patrick’s Day, red bell peppers and hummus on Valentine’s Day, turkey jerky around Thanksgiving, blackberry and orange fruit salad on Halloween.
  23. 23.  Appoint an Employee Wellness “Governor”  Make it fun and hold an election every quarter, 6 months, or year where the whole office gets to vote on the new woman or man in charge  Inject some culture in your culture  Offer tickets based on performance to things like museums, theaters, and art galleries.
  24. 24.  Create a “high-five” board  Create cutouts with each employee’s name on it and paste it to a magnet. Then buy a white board and put all the names up on it.  Leave some dry-erase markers out so people can call-out another team member for something positive they did.  Don’t’ fall in love with the next diets. We have had 56 since 1978.  Host Lunch and Learns  Choose a day of the week or month to gather for a company-wide Lunch and Learn. Allow team members to present on a topic they’re interested in (whether it’s work related or not) and use this time to discuss important company updates. Revolutionary news site RYOT hosts a brown bag lunch every Monday where the company meets to discuss goals and triumphs.
  25. 25.  Organize a book club!  Reading interesting books allow employees to share ideas on a wide range of topics.  Select a book each quarter and allow people to form small groups to read and review.  Collect food photographs from magazines and post them on a wall. It creates the inspirations for shopping and dinner.  Start a community library  Setup a bookshelf in your office and ask everyone to lend books to the library. Create a sign-up sheet so people can check-in and check-out books.  Inspirational quote of the day or week. Who doesn’t love a great quote, right? Most companies have a bulletin board or chalkboard where employees frequently pass by. Write a new inspirational quote daily or weekly to energize the office. BrainyQuote is a great site to find quotes.
  26. 26.  Create an acknowledgement jar  Setup a jar with strips of paper and a pen next to it for people to acknowledge someone else’s work.  Read the acknowledgements aloud during your weekly team meetings.  Bring in a guest speaker to talk wellness  Hire a speaker to come in and discuss a corporate wellness initiative like meditation, nutrition, exercise, or personal development.  People are much more likely to buy-in when the advice comes from a professional.
  27. 27.  Regardless of the size of your business, there are several reasons you and your employees can benefit from an increased focus on employee health and happiness.  Employee wellness programs are a vital component in attracting top talent, keeping them happy, and decreasing employee turnover and absenteeism.  Many of the best companies to work for already offer their employees the awesome wellness ideas listed above.  Now it’s your turn to improve the well-being of your workspace.  Health & Wellness is a life-style change and a philosophy of healthy living  Thank you Walter
