Personalised Wellness Initiatives for the Workplace
What we eat can provide as much as 60% of our total daily food intake over the average working day. Our workplace diet can significantly impact our health, happiness and even work productivity! Food has the power to enhance energy, mood, mental focus, sleep and even help with stress management. Lily educates, empowers and inspires employees to make positive dietary changes.
The Institute for HealthCare Consumerism finds the average reduction in health-related costs due to workplace wellness programs are 28% fewer sick days, 30% fewer worker’s compensation cases, and a 26% reduction in healthcare costs.
Wellness isn’t a ‘one-size-fit’s all’ solution which is why Lily offers bespoke nutrition focused wellness initiatives tailored to the employer’s needs. Her extensive training in nutrition and vast experience within the corporate wellness sector, enables her to provide evidence-based and trustworthy programmes.
Each programme is tailored to client’s requirements in order to achieve maximum results. Some examples of what can be included within nutrition focused workplace wellness initiatives include:
Nutrition Lunch + Learns
Interactive and engaging seminars covering key topics in relation to health and wellness. Employees can pop in on their lunch break and learn how to boost productivity and success through good nutrition.
Key topics covered include how to eat for brain power, mood and even energy. Lunch and learns are bespoke and provide practical strategies to empower employees to lead a healthy and successful lifestyle.
A chance for busy employees to put knowledge into practice. On average, we consume 60% of our food at work and our choices can make or break whether we experience a high energy day!
These workshops break down the barrier between ‘lack of time’ and creating nourishing meals. Employees will leave full of inspiration to replicate easy recipe ideas in the workplace or at home.
Workplace Clinic Days + Health Mot’s
Personalised nutrition advice for employees, Lily provides 30 minute express nutrition consultations to enhance health and productivity.
It’s recommended to carry out at health MOT on a yearly basis which includes advanced testing to identify common nutritional deficiencies.
With an undergraduate degree in food science and human nutrition, Lily can provide a nutritional analysis of food and drink at the onsite restaurant and canteen, along with guidance on practical change.
Creating an environment which harbours change is key to the success of any workplace wellness program. Lily will assess the barriers to change and develop tailor made strategies and materials to increase compliance.
What companies have to say
Ivy, HR Advisor, Stella McCartney
For World Health Day 2017 we enjoyed having Lily Soutter present to us about how to eat for a high energy work day. Lily talked us through the nutritional benefits of a vegetarian and vegan lifestyle, making breakfasts for busy mornings and ways to beat stress to stay energised. It was a great interactive session and we would welcome Lily in the office again.
Jake Larkin-Collins, Rewards Advisor at Arthur J. Gallagher
Lily hosted a fantastic seminar for us onsite in our office for over 40 people. Lily understood our requirements and demographics perfectly in order to deliver a seminar which was suited for the audience and meant they could engage more meaningfully with her and the topic. Furthermore Lily followed up on all questions she received at the seminar with more content and even tailored these to our location with top tips for healthy and nutritious food options within the City of London further adding to the practical advice she gave. All in all Lily is a great speaker who really puts in the effort to understand her target audience to make it personal to them. Highly recommended.”

Lily provided an excellent seminar to our employees aimed at improving wellbeing as part of our annual wellness month. Lily delivered a detailed and interactive presentation on “Eating for a High Energy Work Day” and was able to explain herself and answer employee questions with ease. The feedback from our employees was very positive and everyone enjoyed tasting the new healthy foods and drinks and we were all grateful for the ‘goody bag’. In summary, Lily gave great practical advice that everyone was able to understand. Highly recommended.
Sunita Devi, Learning & Development Manager at RPC Law
A great session with Lily. Lily provided lots of tips that where practical and easy to apply to help maintain energy levels. I no know how to avoid the afternoon slump! Thanks for organising another great session.
‘I found Lily to be refreshingly unbiased in her approach, which was a welcomed surprise. I expected to walk out feeling like I was doing something wrong in my day to day eating habits, but rather I felt empowered by the guidance we were presented with. I got excited about trying the recipes as they looked delicious and very easy to accomplish, even for someone who is not much of a cook. I thought the quick analysis of surrounding eateries was also a super value add for Investec employees specifically.’
‘Lily was interested in empowering us to make better decisions and be more informed. I never felt bad about what I was eating during the talk or felt like she was trying to prescribe one way of eating to me. I really enjoyed it.’
