Benefits of Office Fruit for Corporate Wellness

Healthy Staff. Healthy Business.

Recent studies clearly demonstrate that companies which offer workplace health initiatives are earning high marks with their employees. In one survey, 87% of respondents reported that they would rather be employed by someone who provides health and well-being support, and 82% believed that these programs improve employee well-being.

Research has also shown that employees who feel valued, validated, and appreciated are far more efficient, effective, and productive than their stressed, resentful counterparts. That's another reason why so many companies are taking proactive steps to encourage a relaxed workplace.

Supporting healthier choices

The idea of providing fruit in the workplace is one example that encapsulates the new paradigm in corporate health initiatives. This concept -- radical in its commonsense simplicity -- is fast becoming an integral part of the corporate landscape in many companies, both in Australia and around the world.

Fruit has long been recognised as a uniquely appealing dietary choice that combines great taste and dense nutrition. It offers an unparalleled source of natural energy, as well as providing essential vitamins, minerals, and fibre that may help prevent chronic diseases, including cardiovascular diseases, some types of cancer, and diabetes.

Fresh fruit in the workplace is fast becoming a fixture in corporate settings. Not only is it an inexpensive way to show staff they are truly valued, but it also delivers maximum return on investment from a health and wellness perspective. Corporate fruit programs provide staff with a tangible show of support for their healthier lifestyle choices, while also offering an unmatched level of convenience that displays respect for employees’ precious time.


By providing an array of fresh fruit for employees, companies can make it easier for their workers to make healthy choices. Fruit also boosts workplace productivity on multiple levels. It provides the essential nutrients that support healthy immune functioning and prevent a host of chronic illnesses, thus proactively minimising the costs of time lost due to sickness. In addition -- and perhaps even more importantly -- fruit in the workplace is a visible sign of support for employees’ healthy lifestyles that can boost morale, company loyalty, and employee satisfaction.

A bounty of health and business benefits

Today, employees are looking for a company that offers progressive values, a focus on wellness, and a steadfast commitment to work/life balance. Because virtually every employer in the marketplace offers the same menu of traditional benefits, enterprising companies are thinking outside the box for workplace features and amenities that will help them attract and retain top talent.

A workplace fruit program offers employers and employees alike an array of appealing advantages:

  • A return on investment that far exceeds the average for most other employee benefits 
  • A substantial body of scholarly literature attesting to fruit’s ability to increase productivity and reduce turnover and absenteeism 
  • A gesture of solidarity and commitment to employee convenience, health, and well-being 
  • The unique preventive power of fruit’s nutrition -- and the track record of diminished health care costs to back it up 
  • Health parity and equity of access for less than $1.00 a day

Fruit at work is a concept of radical simplicity whose time has clearly come. Make a bold commitment to workplace wellness and connect your employees with the unparalleled health-promoting power of fresh fruit today.
