Corporate Wellness

The heart and soul of any business are the people behind the scenes (or even out in the limelight) that make things happen. Without these people working to the best of their potential, business will be affected.

Although the health of staff is a huge priority for any business, unfortunately within the UK staff sickness is a big problem:

  • 30.4 working days a year are lost due to sickness or illness-related underperformance (1)
  • Sickness costs around £554 per employee annually (2)
  • 50% of sickness is due to work- related stress, anxiety or depression (3)

Why use nutrition as a focus for staff wellness?

Gut health directly impacts mental health which is currently the leading cause for staff sickness. Although food can have such an impact on your mood, there is currently a ‘Nutrition Gap’ affecting workplaces across the UK

  • 75% of adults are not achieving their ‘Five a Day’(1)
  • Around 60% of daily food intake happens at work yet very little support is given within the corporate setting
  • Corporate nutrition interventions often focus on weight loss rather than mental wellbeing. Weight loss interventions are often ineffective at long term behaviour change and can cause shame, disappointment and unhealthy eating behaviours

Previously worked with:

“Mind Nourishing delivered a session as part of our wellbeing week. It was a really different  kind of session for Taff which got colleagues thinking about the links between their food/hydration/sleep and wellbeing both in and outside of work. The session was optional for our colleagues and really well attended, feedback has been overwhelmingly positive because of the interactivity and upbeat presentation by Laura. Who knew hummus could create so much conversation amongst team members?”- Taff Housing- Cardiff

“Laura’s knowledge and experience go hand in hand with her passion for food and healthier choices! We worked with Laura as a team and not only benefited from understanding more about how what we eat can affect our gut bacteria and ultimately our brain, but also it lead to a great exercise in team building as we shared thoughts and ideas on what to eat and cook!  What we eat affects every aspect  of our lives and when we want to perform we need to be sure we have the right fuel to do it! Laura is inspirational and mind nourishing should be a way of life ’- Jessica Antly- Worcestershire County Council
