Have a think about what your workplace is doing for you? Clock in, clock out; day in, day out. Is your team just a set of numbers to your directors? Have you identified aspects of your daily routine that may be improved by a greater culture of nutrition and exercise? On the other side of the coin, are your staff members happy and productive? If not, how do you create a great workplace with a healthy, positive environment?

Employees want to be listened to and their wellbeing looked after. Employers want a healthy, energetic and alert staff to smash targets and achieve goals. When everyone is satisfied it’s all peaches and cream…
