The health and wellness of a company’s team can make or break it. Regrettably, there are still a lot of companies that see employees as a cost rather than value. But the world is changing. The more successful ones have realised that the company relies heavily on how happy and healthy they keep their talent (the latter is especially important in colder climates).
So here we give you an overview of different benefits and perks on offer by companies in Lithuania to keep their team’s health and wellness on point, resulting in higher productivity.
The right diet is crucial for your health and wellness. In fact, diet related diseases have reached the top causes of death, surpassing lung cancer. This is why having that extra push or something as simple as fresh fruit in the office is an important step towards the health and wellness of a company’s team.
Of the 56.9 million deaths worldwide in 2016, more than half (54%) were due to the top 10 causes. Ischaemic heart disease and stroke are the world’s biggest killers, accounting for a combined 15.2 million deaths in 2016. These diseases have remained the leading causes of death globally in the last 15 years according to WHO
As they say – an apple a day keeps the doctor away.
