Healthy Snacking

While an employee’s overall diet can negatively impact workplace productivity, on the job snacking can have an even bigger impact.  A recent Brigham and Young University study reports that employees that rarely eat healthy snacks at work, like fruits and vegetables, were 93 percent more likely to have a greater loss of productivity.  
 Poor employee health is responsible for a surprising amount of workplace productivity loss.
"Total health-related employee productivity loss accounts for 77 percent of all such loss and costs employers two to three times more than annual healthcare expenses, " said lead author Ray Merrill, a professor in the Department of Health Science at BYU. Source: HERO(PDF)
Key findings from the study include:
  • 66 percent of employees with an unhealthy diet were more likely to report lost productivity
  • 50 percent of employees that only exercised occasionally reported lost productivity
  • 28 percent of smokers reported lower productivity levels than non-smokers
The link between healthy diet and worker productivity is the biggest factor in productivity loss!
Company provided fruit is a cost effective tool to keep employees healthier, motivated and it improves morale!
