Step 1 – Get the right people on board Getting senior-level commitment will empower your people to suggest and make changes. If you don’t have this already, ask one of the senior leaders in your business to sponsor and champion healthy eating in the workplace. Step 2 – Assess your current offering and set some targets Make these realistic, you can always set the targets higher over time. Step 3 – Make a series of changes Take a series of steps rather than making lots of changes at once. This way, you can see what does and doesn’t work and you can backtrack on some of the changes if necessary. Step 4 - Measure your impact Consider how to measure the impact of your programme, for example through sales of healthier meals and colleague satisfaction. Morale is a vital factor in any wellbeing programme so ask your colleagues for their feedback and be prepared to adapt your approach without sacrificing your end goal. IGD’s new guide shares the learnings from the experiments through simple and practical tips that any employer providing food and drink at work can implement. Aimed at management and catering providers, the guide helps business leaders to promote wellbeing at work and provides step-by-step guidance for those involved in catering.
