“Workplace wellness is any program that aims to improve the health of your employees and their families while reducing your health-related costs as an employer.
The good news is that even if you aren’t in a position to implement a comprehensive program, there are many small steps you can take to promote wellness. In fact, a gesture as small as providing fresh fruit once a week can be a very simple way to show your employees that their health is important to the company. Trying out just one small component of a wellness program can act like a trial run—it gives you a chance to see how your employees respond and whether a more comprehensive program might work in the future.”
The company encourages participation in the wellness program, yet still offers high-fat “junk” foods in the cafeteria and vending machines sending a mixed message.
The company leaders don’t participate, so employees don’t believe it’s important.
Employees believe the company saves money, but “what’s in it for me?”
Food is a BIG part of wellness.
Team Breakfast helps you tackle these three issues head-on while promoting existing wellness initiatives or providing a launch pad for a new wellness program.
The objective of this food-based team building program is to use food preparation and the gourmet meal that is produced, as an active and powerful metaphor. The group will experience all the components of a functioning team, bond together and get to know each other in a unique environment outside of the work place.
