Office Fruit 'Can Help Ward Off Staff Illness'

11/01/2011

The office fruit basket is a very helpful thing to have in the workplace if you want your staff to be off sick less, according to one company.

Ambius has produced a list of the ways in which to reduce staff absence, which highlights the importance of offering fruit and veg to workers.

"Fresh fruits should be prioritised due to a wide range of vitamins and nutrients," according to the firm. 

Jeanette Van Roy, managing director at Ambius, said: "It's generally accepted that January and February are difficult months in terms of employee motivation and sickness levels." 

She added:"Boosting feelings of wellbeing and creating a healthy work environment can go a long way to improve employee engagement."

Soft citrus fruits from the office fruit box are fantastic sources of vitamin C, which can help boost people's immune system, and speed-up their recovery from any pesky cold viruses.
