It is a well-known fact that employee productivity and wellness tend to drop as we approach winter. On average a third of employees experience a dip in their motivation, with reduced efficiency and energy levels, but it doesn’t have to be this way.
One of the easiest ways to boost productivity is to offer your staff nutritious food options in the workplace. Encouraging healthy eating in the office has been proven to increase focus and creativity in employees. A great way to do this is by offering wholegrain bread or probiotic yoghurt and replacing lollies with high-nutrition seasonal fruit like pears or mandarins to satisfy afternoon sugar cravings.
It is also important to educate your staff about the nutritional value of different foods and the impact they can have on their energy levels. For example, foods like apples and bananas are rich in vitamins A and C, folate and potassium which help improve immunity and heart health. High-fat snacks and sugary drinks on the other hand can leave you feeling parched and sluggish.
Another tip to boost staff productivity at work is to encourage employees to leave their desks for lunch and take short walks around the office every hour, helping stretch their muscles and minimise screen fatigue.
