Eating healthy has countless benefits for both your mind and body. Although most agree that it is important to eat healthy, not everyone is able to easily do so. Packing a healthy lunch every day is not always an option for busy workers, and meal prep takes a lot of time that many of us don’t have. This creates an environment where getting a quick unhealthy meal at a fast food restaurant seems like the only choice.
At Total we pride ourselves in helping your organization present an alternate healthier option. Providing healthy options not only gives employees health benefits, but there are also tangible benefits for organizations that offer programs and support for healthier lifestyles. For example, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), businesses that promote healthy lifestyles will witness increased productivity, reduced “absenteeism” and may even experience a reduction in employee pool insurance costs and workers compensation costs. Along with the CDC, there are several other sources that agree that there are benefits for businesses who promote healthy lifestyles.
One of the major benefits of promoting healthy lifestyles in your organization is increased morale. Happy employees and happy consumers are more productive and tend to exhibit greater loyalty for your organization. They also report experiencing lower stress, and as stated before, experience fewer illnesses and fewer absences.
The benefits of promoting a healthy lifestyle are not only measured by the availability of healthier options, but also by the new perception that your organization cares and invests in its people.
There are many ways to promote healthier lifestyles, but our Healthy Vending Program should be at the top of your list. Why?
Because organizations that choose to promote and focus on healthier products also have a habit of “displacing” less-healthy products.
