Are you looking at your employee well-being strategies, and reshaping these following recent events? Nutrition forms a key strand of employee physical and mental health, supporting you to build a healthy and resilient workforce that are engaged and productive, particularly with new work arrangements.
I offer three options to complement your needs and pride myself in taking it beyond simply ‘healthy eating in the workplace’. We explore the science of nutrition, the psychology of our habits and what truly impacts on our relationships with food, to inspire and empower real change amongst your teams.
I am based in the Southwest but deliver workplace wellness seminars and workshops across the UK with the option for virtual or face to face delivery.
A healthy, balanced and engaged workforce can be one of the single most valuable assets a business can have.
Let’s take this beyond simply healthy eating at work…
Research tells us that menopause can have a significant impact on attendance and performance in the workplace and is something which most likely, half your workforce is guaranteed to experience at some stage. Its affects are far reaching, impacting not just women in a broader sense.
It’s not talked about widely enough, nor are the potential benefits of exploring the role of diet and nutrition in the picture in supporting women through this stage of life. Symptoms are wide and varying and nutrition has the potential to link to all of them.
My sessions involve exploring how foods and nutrition can support the hormonal changes and symptoms of the menopause, for example hot flushes, changes to body weight and increased risks to bone and cardiovascular health.
I also like to have the opportunity to go deeper than this, to look at the emotional and mental wellbeing side of menopause. For example, providing support and advice as we explore how we feel about our changing body image, how we navigate and decide how to nourish ourselves, especially when faced with idealistic diet culture and how we truly define what it means to be healthy as we age.
Investing in tailored education and support for women preparing for and going through the menopause is essential. It helps your workforce to become more self- empowered and confident, with clarity on how best to support their wellbeing for a healthy productive working day and beyond.
“In my consultation with Laura she explored drivers for my eating behaviour that have been the same for over 30 years, which I assumed couldn’t be broken. It’s really helped me make some changes which are benefiting all areas of my life, especially work.”
For specific dietary needs related to health conditions personalised advice is important and really valued by the people I see. Dietitians’ are the only nutrition professionals trained to do this.
Feedback on bespoke packages:
“Laura, of Laura Clark Nutrition, was absolutely fantastic when she came into our workplace. We had a full day, with 2 presentations and a number of 1-1 meetings with the team to advise on healthy eating, and specific questions relating to individuals’ eating patterns.
Laura pitched her presentation perfectly – as it was informative, interesting and most importantly kept things real! We all learnt something from the day – and were requested to have a realistic objective moving forward. I would recommend Laura coming in to anyone’s workplace to advise the team on nutrition – it was a good bonding experience for the team, and clear that small changes can make a big difference! Thank you, Laura.”
