London, 23rd March, 2012 - To help staff across the country stay fit and healthy and experience great energy every day, British Gas has commissioned a healthy eating plan for employees.
The plan, which has been designed by wellness company The Tonic, includes a full 6-week schedule for daily meals, snacks, drinks, restaurant choices and information covering healthy eating on the move. There's also a shopping list and a host of tips to help every member of staff design the food routine that will work best for them.
British Gas National Wellbeing Manager, Helen Knight said, “The 6 Week Healthy Eating Plan is part of our 2012 Wellbeing Programme to help our people manage their wellbeing. We appreciate the hard work all our staff put into the business and this is just one way for us to make their lives easier and help them make simple changes that will really make a difference to how they feel in the longer term”.
Other health and wellbeing activity includes access to; an on-line health assessment, Quarterly Wellbeing Bulletins, Employee Assistance Programme, Smoking Cessation Programmes, Lifestyle and Energy workshops, ‘Time to Change’ programme organised in conjunction with mental health charities MIND and RETHINK, physiotherapy services which include knee and back care workshops, a Resilience Toolkit and a comprehensive Occupational Health Service.
Tonic Director, Jeff Archer commented, “Designing a healthy eating plan for British Gas has been a great way to save staff a huge amount of time and effort working out how they can eat healthily within busy professional and personal lives. Our team spoke with many of the BG staff prior to devising the plan to find out how we could create a schedule that would be practical and relevant to their situation and we're really pleased with what we've come up with”
The Tonic team specialises in helping businesses raise the performance of their people through wellbeing days, lifestyle coaching and wellness initiatives for training, development and leadership programmes.
