Workplace wellness

Corporate nutrition and exercise workshops

Joel has teamed up with Ben Taylor, an exercise physiologist, from Tailored Health to deliver corporate nutrition and exercise workshops. The duo can design and deliver dynamic employee wellness workshops and programs for your staff.


Both Ben and Joel have been on their own individual health journeys and have made the changes needed to improve their personal wellbeing. Some time ago, Ben was diagnosed with high cholesterol, and he identified a need to focus on his diet and lifestyle in order to help reduce his risk factors for heart disease.


Joel also faced health challenges in the past, having struggled with his weight during his adolescent years. He, too, identified that he needed to make dietary and lifestyle changes to achieve better health.


Together, Ben and Joel understand that change can be difficult. And that is why they offer no-nonsense, evidence-based nutrition and exercise programs. The pair guarantees to deliver health tips in a novel and interactive way that will encourage and support your employees to make impactful changes. All corporate nutrition and wellbeing workshops are fully custom-designed to meet your employees’ needs.

Creating a healthier workplace after the coronavirus pandemic


COVID-19 has caused colossal changes in the workplace. Employees are likely to be operating remotely or working altered rosters onsite. These adjustments, combined with the continuing health and fiscal implications of COVID-19, can significantly impact staff well-being.


Due to quarantine and social distancing restrictions, many Australians, particularly those living in rural and remote areas of Australia, are suffering from psychological stresses. Economic problems and physical distancing laws lead to higher levels of isolation, alcohol abuse, gambling, depression, family violence and anxiety.


There are several immediate steps that workplaces can take to safeguard their employees’ health and wellbeing. Responding to the particular concerns of their employees, maintaining good lines of communication with team members, and looking out for changes in work output and behaviour should be top of mind for employers and managers.


However, in a post-COVID-19 world, the industry will need to balance the successful transition of their staff back to the workplace. In fact, many businesses are considering a more flexible approach in which employees can divide their working time between the office and home. Benefits of working from home include spending less time commuting, increased flexibility and enhanced productivity.

Creating a healthier workplace after the coronavirus pandemic

If this pandemic has taught us anything, it is that our health is our greatest asset.


By undertaking wellness initiatives, businesses can support the health, performance, and happiness of their employees and boost profits, staff retention, and productivity.


Addressing wellbeing in the workplace should be a priority for companies that wish to thrive and prosper in a post-COVID-19 world.


Staff productivity


Addressing absenteeism and presenteeism (when issues prevent employees from being fully productive at work) is a challenge for businesses nationwide. Research shows that employee wellbeing boosts the health of the organisation. Additionally, healthy workers are more effective and efficient at work and have fewer sick days. Estimates suggest that almost 6.5 days are lost to presenteeism per employee each year in Australia.


Ben and Joel’s bespoke nutrition and movement-based programs will support the health and wellbeing of employees at both an organisational and individual level.


Rather than focusing on shoulds and should nots, rules etc., they explore techniques to equip your employees with the know-how to make healthy and long-lasting lifestyle changes.


Additionally, the team takes a holistic approach to food, diet and exercise. The focus is on all aspects of health, so participants are empowered to take charge of their own health journeys.


Ben and Joel are results-focused. You will see a measurable return on your investment with a healthier, more efficient and present work team. Data indicates that businesses will yield an average return of $5.81 for every dollar invested in workplace health programs (Australian Government).
