A recent study conducted by GAIN’s Christina Nyhus Dhillon and Flaminia Ortenzi, analysed the potential effects of workforce nutrition programmes on nutrition, health and business outcomes. The research focused on the workplace as an important but underutilised opportunity to address malnutrition in all its forms, which can result in significant gains in productivity and potential, presenting opportunities to employers in both high- and low- and middle-income countries.
The study found that comprehensive and targeted workforce nutrition programmes yield improvements in nutrition and health outcomes, especially if embedded into broader employee wellbeing interventions. Targeted programmes for high-risk groups such as overweight/obese or pre-diabetic employees also showed positive outcomes for nutrition, health and business.
