What is a wellness Lunch and Learn?
Be Better Balanced’s Lunch and Learns are fun, interactive training events that take place at your location during the lunch hour. Employees who attend bring their lunches and eat them during the training session. A Lunch and Learn does not make more hours in the day, but it does make the best use your team’s time.
How do Lunch and Learn programs benefit your bottom line?
Health care costs are on the rise. By far, the most cost-efficient method of reducing these costs is to implement a plan of prevention. It is less expensive to prevent injuries and illnesses than it is to treat them. Be Better Balanced’s Lunch and Learns will teach your team how to avoid many of the pitfalls that can lead to illness and disease.
With less illness in the workplace, insurance premiums may decrease, absenteeism decreases and energy and productivity rise. By providing workers with the benefits of wellness education, you will have higher employee satisfaction resulting in greater retention rates. Less turnover= greater profits.
Why will my employees want to come?
Every person has some sort of health risk to varying degrees, whether it’s unhealthy eating, lack of exercise, difficulty sleeping, alcohol consumption, smoking, or even something genetic. Attending wellness Lunch and Learns can make positive change happen. Not only will employees be better able to complete job responsibilities, but they will have more energy and vigor to give to family and friends when they get home.
Another great benefit of participating in a workplace wellness program is a sense of camaraderie with co-workers. Employees find motivation by being encouraged and held accountable by co-workers.
