Research shows higher medical claims among employees with weight issues, poor nutrition, lack of activity, and stress.
In order to adopt permanent lifestyle changes, employees need the tools, support, and resources to empower them to take personal responsibility for their own health and well-being. Grassroots employee participation is what drives behavior change and the only true way to achieve the coveted “culture of wellness.” Gardening provides a structured and manageable set of activities that address all these issues.
Corporate gardens are an easy to implement, economically sound and creative way to address employee health habits. The Corporate Garden Coach will cultivate a turnkey corporate gardening kit to fit your business needs.
