60% of UK workers believe their employers should provide fresh fruit
According to a new survey from British Summer Fruits almost two-thirds (60%) of employee respondents believe their employer should offer fresh fruit to staff in the workplace.
Its survey of 2,000 UK employees also found that 78% of respondents do not know who the relevant person to speak to is about introducing healthier food choices to the office environment.
The research also found that 52% of respondents work more productively when they eat healthily and that only 8% of respondents have access to fresh fruit in meetings.
Kate Cook, corporate wellness expert, said: “In my experience, the [organisations] that have the lowest staff turnover are the ones that really invest in their staff wellbeing, particularly giving them access to great food choices. Enlightened [organisations] are seeing that introducing fresh fruit into the workplace, such as a punnet of berries for breakfast or for snacking on during meetings, leads to improved concentration, productivity, and a reduction in health problems and work absences.”
