Healthy Habits begin at home.
But for many, more time is spent working than doing anything else.
The workplace is a key opportunity for driving improvements in health nationwide. Research found that two thirds (65%) of employees across Ireland feel they should be consuming a healthier diet. Just one third of employees meet the recommended levels of physical activity per week while 4 in 10 office bound employees state they do no physical activity on working days.
Amongst many reasons a healthy workforce offers the following advantages to a business:
Reduced absenteeism and health/insurance costs
More efficient and time productive work
Enhanced performance and self-esteem
Positive atmosphere and attitude to work
Better cooperation and teamwork
Lower staff turnover rates
Good image and reputation
We all know the major health problems that this country is facing but Public Health is everyone’s business.
Of course people must be responsible for their own health but the impact of our environment on our wellbeing is key and the workplace has a powerful role in shaping individual behaviour.
This is not only for the benefit of individuals but also for the benefit of entire families and the economy.
Each session is tailored to the needs and wants of the particular workplace. 1:1 individual employee consultations are also available.
