Healthy Employees Mean Healthy Business

Workplace wellness programs simply aren't complete when they are void of a personal health component.

Promoting wellness and preventing illness in your organization is a key investment for any business. To accomplish and maintain the very best level of productivity, you need your employees to be engaged, creative and energetic. People with health issues are often held back from achieving their best, and this can lead to a negative impact on your bottom line.

Both small and large companies are promoting Crave Meals Programs in the workplace. Here are a few well known organizations and companies that are currently encouraging the use of our solution.

 

 
A New Approach to Health

The most novel thing about Crave Meals is our approach to healthy eating. Our solution is one of practical learning. Whether it's driving a car, learning a new role at work, or learning to healthy eating habits, we believe the majority of us learn by doing

However, the approach commonly practiced only provides the individual with pamphlets, books or a basic web page so they can "educate" themselves.  The individual is then left to figure out how to put the information into use. We recognize that there is a critical gap between reading the material, learning it, and putting it into practice.

Compare this with our approach...

Individuals using Crave receive a tailored meal plan each week delivered to their inbox, complete with a grocery list and recipes. Each plan is based solely on that individual, and each plan accounts for activity, health/weight goals and food preferences.  By working with their program, the user begins to learn their proper portion sizes, how many times a day they should be eating, how many fruits and vegetables they should be consuming, and more. Essentially, they learn healthy habits while taking real action that moves them closer to their goal. 

Personal benefits of using Crave Meals Programs:

  • Blood Sugar Control
  • Increase in Energy
  • Correcting and Boosting Metabolism
  • Lowering Blood Pressure
  • Reduce the Risk of Chronic Disease
  • Healthy Pregnancy

 *All of our programs follow National Nutritional Guidelines.

Good Business

Employees are one of your companies greatest assets.  An investment in their personal health can have a direct impact on your company.  Healthier employees often translates into:

  • An increase in productivity
  • A boost in morale
  • A decrease absenteeism cost

And, can help you to:

  • Enhance your company image & culture
  • Attract and retain top talent

Recently there has been a renewed focus by companies and human resources departments on curbing absenteeism.  Absenteeism cost the Canadian economy $16.6 billion in 2012, (Morneau Shepell Inc).  This is an astounding figure.  So what's the cause of all the lost dollars?  As shown below, recent studies show over a 1/3 of absenteeism is caused by personal health/illness.
