Workplace Nutrition and Productivity

Description

Nutrition and physical activity are very important to one’s health. The purpose of this study was to examine workplace nutrition and physical activity taking into specific consideration the effects of these initiatives on employee productivity. Unhealthy eating habits among employees have steadily increased over the years. Hence, the need for physical activity and healthy nutrition has become crucial. This study was intended to determine the impact that healthy eating and physical activity has on employees and increase awareness on ways to manage a diet. Published articles were utilized to identify and examine ways in which employees who consume unhealthy foods and exercise minimally are less productive, while employees who consume healthy foods and exercise maximally are more productive. The published articles included mostly information on healthy and unhealthy eating, eating disorders, obesity, free fruit interventions and physical activity. Microsoft and Google Corporations were used for this study to identify the accomplishments of overall health and well-being of their employees. These findings may be used by workplace managers and health professionals to assist in planning or implementing a wellness program in their organization.
