Bommanahalli, Bengaluru Feb 9, 2017
There is no doubt that company revenues take a hit due to its employee health challenges. Employee health and wellness is the key to a company’s successful endeavours. Unfortunately, this is a factor that is ignored by majority of the management (while recruiting), HR professionals (during employee engagement) and Admin professionals (while hiring food vendors). This process has to be the culmination of the effort from the corporate with personal involvement from management, HR Professionals and Administration professionals.Studies have proven time and again that without an appropriate nutrient intake, the mind can simply not focus on completing a task efficiently. Statistics don’t lie, and it is imperative that senior level members understand how health can help increase revenue. Only once they start to take steps in the right direction by taking their employee’s lifestyle and food habits into consideration can their companies start to grow in a positive direction. Optum published a white paper a while ago, on Healthy employees, healthy profits. Here are a couple of statistics from the whitepaper.
1. Did you know? You could be losing 2.5 hrs of productivity per employee every week!
According to Optum whitepaper, employee health problems lead to approximately 41 minutes of absence and 2 hours and 29 minutes of lost productivity each week. When considering food-related health problems, we consider big picture challenges like diabetes, high cholesterol and heart problems. However, the seemingly ‘smaller problems’ such as post-lunch lethargy, lack of concentration due to poor nutrition and low energy levels are causes for severe drops in company revenue. We don’t expect senior members to have time to brood over such problems but this challenges is critical and is costing the company. Here is where Jiyo Natural steps in as a ‘health food partner’.
