You probably know that the top 5 causes of short term absenteeism are minor illnesses such as colds and ﬂu; stress; neck strain; back pain and family responsibilities. We would hazard a guess that tummy bugs or IBS also features quite highly on the list of reasons for absence, but people may be embarrassed to discuss this. In response to this we have created a series of three talks aimed at empowering your employees to take better control of their health through diet and lifestyle, hopefully meaning that they will be less likely to need to take time off work and will enjoy better levels of health and wellbeing.
Seminar 1: Boost your immune system naturally to avoid coughs, colds and flu
Picking up viruses such as colds and ﬂu is not inevitable. We will explore the numerous ways that you can boost your immune system so that these minor illnesses are a thing of the past. We explain the concept of the immune boosting diet and the importance of knowing your levels of Vitamin D. We will also cut through the confusion of supplements and suggest the key nutrients they should contain.
Seminar 2: Mental health and absenteeism
In this talk we will explain how work stress can affect mental health and the physiological effects that it has on the body. We will share simple strategies for reducing stress and building resilience, including dietary and lifestyle recommendations.
Seminar 3: Good gut health
IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) is the most common gastrointestinal disorder in the UK and effects a signiﬁcant proportion of the working population. This, often embarrassing, condition can affect both productivity and absenteeism, and is probably not readily discussed. In this talk we explain the ways you can improve gut function through diet and lessen the symptoms that individuals might be suffering with privately.
Stress is one of the major causes of absenteeism in the workplace and is the scourge of our fast paced, modern society. In this series of three talks we explore exactly what stress is and how it impacts health, often in unexpected ways. For those whose stress levels are particularly high we explore burnout and suggest ways in which attendees can regain control of their stress levels and bring back balance. In our third talk we examine sleep and its link to stress, and explain how vital restorative sleep is to combatting the effects of stress.
