If you’re like a lot of employers, learning who is food insecure may seem like an impossible task. And although there aren’t always signs, health inequity is quite common. In fact, due to the impact of COVID-19, a projected 42 million Americans will experience food insecurity, a leading contributor to health inequity, in 2021.
Employee retention & engagement has always been a challenge, but now with higher turnover rates coming out of COVID-19, employers need to consider innovative benefits that offer value to all of their employees. Traditional benefits like on-site cafeterias and fitness centers are less effective as many employees are now working in a hybrid or remote working model. Not only that, but 60% of Americans suffer from at least one chronic disease. Meanwhile, people with obesity were up to 92% more likely to die from COVID-19, which demonstrates how vulnerable our population has become. We know that eating well is key in the prevention of most chronic diseases, thus the need for better nutrition is more evident than ever. Poor employee health has an impact on workforce productivity, engagement, and motivation as well as increased healthcare costs due to increased medical care. Your diverse employees need support to become “food smart” and develop healthy habits that lead to lasting behavior change and better health outcomes.
Our vision is to ensure people everywhere are empowered to live healthy lives, free of chronic disease. We are committed to DEI to support everyone on their unique journey to better health.
As nutrition is often the most desired employee benefit, we provide your employees access to Telenutrition with our Registered Dietitians through Foodsmart. Foodsmart's platform gives your employees the foundational tools to create sustainable change in eating behavior to keep them healthy while working remotely.
We help with more than weight and Diabetes. Our dietitians are licensed to help your employees with all conditions linked to nutrition, such as CKD, heart disease, and more. Foodscripts (Fx) addresses these specific chronic conditions through food subsidies tailored to that condition, such as Fx Outpatient for post-CHF admissions.
Through Foodsecure, we work with you to provide food subsidies to your financially vulnerable employees, such as furloughed workers, or those dealing with general food insecurity. We accept SNAP through our online grocery partners, and provide customized grocery deals to your employees to save them money.
We have years of experience working and
integrating with major wellness platforms
