We are committed to creating a working environment in which employees have the means to lead healthier lifestyles, and in the UK and Ireland we run an award-winning Employee Wellness programme. In 2009, Nestlé UK was awarded Gold in the Food and Drink Federation Community Partnership Awards for its Employee Wellness programme.
Nutrition and hydration are key elements of the programme and the caterers across our sites provide a choice of nutritious foods and beverages with supplementary nutritional information. We also run health-awareness weeks, offering health checks and raising awareness of healthy lifestyles.
Nestlé UK supports Change4Life and we are integrating Change4Life messaging and materials into our Employee Wellness programme. We aim to engage, empower and energise employees to take ownership of their own health.
We are committed to developing our people as ambassadors of Nestlé’s commitment to nutrition. Since 2007, 850 Nestlé UK employees have completed our Nutritional Quotient (NQ) training programme, equipping them with key skills and knowledge on nutrition and how it relates to our brand and business – as well as how to make healthy lifestyle changes at home.
