There are many benefits of creating a culture of wellbeing and health in a working environment. When integrated properly, wellness activities can help improve the health and productivity of employees, as well as helping to cut healthcare costs, sick leave, absenteeism and presenteeism.
According to a WHO review of effective interventions on diet and physical activity (WHO,2009), multi-component programmes, such as healthy eating, exercise facilities and self learning are recommended for the workplace.
As stated in “A Healthy Weight for Ireland – Obesity Policy & Action Plan 2016 – 2025” developed by the Dept. of Health, a “whole of society” approach to health and wellbeing is vital in the effort to help prevent ill health and chronic disease. The Dept. of Health specifically identifies the workplace as one of eight sectors outlined to play an active leadership role in the prevention and management of obesity.
