Corporate Nutrition and Workplace Wellbeing

Workplace Wellbeing

The health and wellbeing of your employees is key to the success of your company.

Sick days cost Irish businesses €1.5 billion per year as the average employee takes 6.4 days of unscheduled leave from their jobs each year. The private sector takes on average 6 days a year whereas the public sectors are taking 11 days in just one year.

Surveys are showing that 90% of Irish employers say that employee health and wellbeing has a direct effect on productivity. Almost 75% of Irish employees are saying that a pressurised environment has now become the norm at work.  The top four health problems experienced in a lot of companies I deal with are stress and anxiety, fatigue and low mood, back and neck pain and low immune systems.

Employees with poor health take up to 9 times more sick leave than the annual sickness absence of healthy individuals.

Corporate Nutrition & Wellbeing

Mary provides a range of consultancy packages to many clients in Ireland and the rest of Europe delivering health and wellness packages in the workplace. Companies include medical and pharmaceutical, financial services, food and beverage, broadband & communications and energy providers.

Corporate Nutrition ProgrammeThe aim of these packages is to promote wellness and performance through nutritional and lifestyle programmes with a focus on a preventive approach, one that optimises health and vitality of employees and empowers them to actively engage in positive changes to their health. 

Investing in wellness for a company is among the most vital investments that a company can make. Businesses that start Corporate Wellness Programmes aren’t only investing in the physical wellness, safety, and mental health of their employees, but are also taking preventive measures by creating an overall healthier environment.

Companies find that by starting one of these Corporate Health & Wellness Programmes, they are able to improve the overall productivity and profit. Sometimes, companies may be concerned about their return on investment but the fact is that by encouraging healthier lifestyles, companies are creating healthier employees who will work more diligently and miss fewer days of work due to illness and company morale will also increase. Mary sees this every day from her client testimonials and evaluation forms.

It is also important that companies not only provide Corporate Health & Wellness Programmes for their staff members as a once off, but that they also maintain ongoing support to ensure compliance and participation and a follow up programme or day is organised.

corporate nutrition Training Cork Mary CarmodyMary’s Health & Wellness Programmes are tailored to suit specific businesses with a range of options available to suit individual company’s specific needs and staff base. As a qualified Nutritional Consultant, Mary runs the following programmes to assist employees in maintaining wellness.

We know that modern day living and the long working hours can include many pressures, and stressful situations that can easily take its toll on the body’s health reserves. This in turn can affect brain function, mental capacity and daily performance as well as longer term health. Providing specialist nutritional advice can help to enhance concentration, focus, mood and sleep, reduce fatigue and increase ability to tolerate stress or deal with life’s load.

Keeping your employees healthier, happier and increasing their overall wellbeing can enable your company to perform to its optimum and reap the benefits.  For more information on Mary’s Health & Wellness Programmes, contact Mary now on 087 2884461 or email her at


 Stryker involved Mary in their Operation Transformation Programme onsite for 6 weeks which included weekly weigh ins and talks plus a full day of one to one consultations.

Mary was very friendly and motivated each of the leaders well, provided great recipes, tasters and fabulous seminars to all involved.  She was fantastic and we cannot wait to work with her again in the near future ! Over the 6 weeks some leaders lost over a stone and others half a stone which were phenomenal results.

Mary provided lunchtime stands for Stryker Limerick on healthy eating tips and recipes. These stands were very well received by our employees and Mary’s very tasty smoothies went down a treat for all to enjoy. A large proportion of our Stryker employees availed of Mary’s knowledge and expertise on food and nutrition during her visit with us. We look forward to having Mary to visit us again to share other appropriate health topics with us.

Her knowledge and passion for Nutrition has been key to this success, as well as the additional discretionary effort she commits to ensure her clients (our staff) achieve their personal goals.  I continue to be impressed by the relationships she builds with our people and consistently receive outstanding feedback from everyone who has worked with her. We have only scratched the surface of the value Mary can add and I’m looking forward to doing more with her in the future.
