Energized at Work & Play

Organizations can create a more positive, supportive, cohesive and engaged work environment by investing in corporate nutrition and health. Nutritional health benefits can optimize energy and productivity, which can also improve the company’s bottom-line.

The proverb “Health is Wealth” is quite literal when it comes to organizations. Almost 500,000 Canadian workers are absent every week. Absenteeism costs an organization $1685 per employee. An organization that invests in the health and well-being of its employees is contributing to optimizing the organization’s success.

Proactively, take care of your employee’s health with ACE Nutrition’s one-on-one dietitian counselling, a customized nutrition plan, and on-demand digital courses.

Top 5 Benefits of a Corporate Nutrition Program

#1 Attract & Retain Talent

Nutritional services can help draw top talent to workplaces because the employees will be more confident in their job satisfaction at the new organization. When employees work in a supportive environment that prioritizes well-being, it shows that employers are committed to caring about their health. If the company invests in personalized nutrition programs (and not the one-size-fits-all package), it will likely reduce employee turnover immensely.

#2 Minimize the Cost of Health Benefits

Healthy employees are less likely to use healthcare services, which can save employers money on health insurance premiums. Nutritional services can help employees prevent and manage chronic diseases, which can also reduce healthcare costs. By providing nutritional services or customized corporate wellness programs, employers can minimize the cost of health benefits and benefit plans.

#3 Increased Productivity

Eating a healthy diet can provide employees with sustained energy levels and improve their mood, focus, and concentration. Nutritional services enable employees to better understand the link between nutrition and productivity, resulting in healthier food choices throughout the workday. Corporate nutrition and wellness programs can help employees be more productive and efficient.

#4 Reduce Sick-Days

1 in 3 Canadians are living with diabetes or prediabetes. Encouraging healthy eating can boost the immune system and reduce the risk of chronic diseases, such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes. Nutritional services provide the education and tools to learn about healthy eating habits, and personalized meal plans meet the individual’s needs. By providing nutritional services, employers can help their workforce stay healthy and reduce the number of sick days.

#5 Create a Cohesive Workplace

When employees have access to health-focused initiatives through corporate nutrition programs, it shows that the company cares about their well-being. Nutritional services can also provide opportunities for employees, with like-minded goals, to socialize and bond. This can create a more positive, supportive, cohesive and engaged work environment. By investing in Corporate Nutrition Services, employers can enhance the company's reputation as a caring and supportive organization. Nutrition-focused programs, such as ACE Nutrition Pro, also support mental health through tools that optimize nutrition and lower anxiety and stress.

ACE Nutrition Pro is a valuable asset for Canadian employers by providing education, tools and resources in preventative health, prediabetes, diabetes, heart health, digestive health, weight loss, and meal planning.
