There are numerous laws in the U.S. that address providing a safe and healthy work environment for your employees. There are other things that you may do to improve the work environment at your business over and above what is required by law, some of which could affect any health insurance component of your California business insurance quotes.
One way to work toward providing a healthier work environment may be to offer healthier choices in employee cafeterias, and break room vending machines, along with nutritional education. Healthier eating may impact productivity and employee morale in a number of ways.
• Healthy eating may reduce the risk of heart disease and some forms of cancer, which may mean a healthier workforce with less absenteeism.
• A better diet typically leads to more energy, elevated mood, and less stress and anxiety, all of which may lead to a happier workforce engaging in fewer arguments and more team work.
• Healthier employees tend to make the most of their time off work, enjoying activities with friends and family, and returning to work rejuvenated.
Should you choose to offer a healthy eating education program to your employees, there are numerous topics you may address. Some ideas may include salt intake, cholesterol, the importance of drinking water, reading labels in the grocery store, and smart eating on the run.
It is also important to provide a clean area for eating at work. It may be wise to include a refrigerator and microwave. Anything you can do to provide a healthier work environment for your employees may impact your California business insurance quotes.
