I worked in Corporate HR for over 5 years (including Mars, Fujitsu and Teach First), until I decided to follow my passion for individual health and nutrition. I am passionate about educating individuals about how they can improve their wellbeing through healthy and tasty food.
According to NICE (2016) absenteeism costs the economy (and organisations) over £15 billion a year! Health and happiness of employees has been profoundly affected over the last three decades, primarily by changes in technology and therefore changes to the business and working environment.
Longer working hours, more stress, less time for breaks and the general increased expectations that employers have of their employees brings with it a very real ability for an individual’s work to profoundly affect their health, and in turn, for their health to profoundly affect their work.
It is now well understood that that a fit, healthy, happy workforce can help to improve the health and wellbeing of a business, ultimately impacting its employees’ future development and success.
