Incorporating exercise and nutrition into daily life is essential for our health and wellbeing.

Research reveals that people who are physically active have lower rates of unplanned illness-related absenteeism. Likewise, healthy eating can help employees maintain their energy levels throughout the day, increasing focus and concentration. Small changes in behaviour can have a big impact on absences, health and productivity. But with many workplaces now split between home and on-site facilities, employees may encounter extra barriers to accessing physical health support. These free resources are designed to help you encourage healthy habits at work.

Healthy eating in the workplace

A nutritious diet is essential for general good health. Not only can it lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes and some cancers, but it can also help people feel better in their daily lives – both at home and at work.

Move more at work

Adults of working age in England average about 9.5 hours of sedentary time per day. Sitting down for long periods can lead to higher rates of diabetes, cardiovascular disease and death from all causes.

These guides offer tips and advice to help managers and employees stay active in the workplace.
