Wellness in the Workplace
“Yay! The fruit’s here!” Staff crowd around our baskets and boxes when we deliver, eager to grab their favorite fruit for an immediate snack or an afternoon pick-me-up. It’s become a familiar scene for us, especially as businesses seek healthy options for staff snacking.
HEALTHY SNACKS ARE IN. Across the nation, corporate wellness programs are encouraged and incentivized. In its worksite wellness manual, the Texas Department of State Health Services lists a variety of measures that businesses can take to improve the fitness of their workforce, including health fairs, regular meetings of weight loss groups, and “healthy food.” That’s where ORCHARD At The OFFICE comes in!
A HEALTHY OFFICE IS A HAPPY OFFICE. A wealth of accumulated data demonstrates the seemingly obvious concept: a staff that eats better, works better. “If you’re serious about achieving top workplace performance, making intelligent decisions about food is essential,” wrote Ron Friedman in the October 2014 edition of the Harvard Business Review. He made a point about the necessity of making healthy snacking easier to achieve than unhealthy snacking, citing a July 2014 dissertation by the British Journal of Health Psychology which states, “Fruit and vegetable consumption predicted greater eudaemonic well-being, curiosity, and creativity at the between- and within-person levels.” As “eudaemonic” means “conducive to happiness,” this study confirms that people are happier when they eat fresh fruit! The associated benefits– especially creativity– nurture the kind of innovation sought in the American workplace.
ORCHARD AT THE OFFICE PROVIDES NUTRITIOUS SOLUTIONS. ORCHARD At The OFFICE's office fruit delivery is the simplest, most effective way to provide healthy snack alternatives to your business. We hand-select premium-quality produce, customize your order, and deliver it directly to your designated break area or reception desk. Our fruit is perfect for the break room, boardroom, corporate kitchen, call center, and warehouse.
"ORCHARD At The OFFICE has been a huge success! The employees appreciate the fresh fruit," says Tammie Hufstettler of Munsch, Hardt, Kopf & Harr. In addition to having ORCHARD At The OFFICE supply healthy snacks for their Texas locations, "We maintain the healthy initiative by bringing in these wonderful baskets at all of our events and meetings."
