Just as Each Employee is Unique, so May their Dietary Needs
Enjoying a meal at work is a common human experience. But when an employee is left out due to an invisible disability — a dietary restriction — or a lifestyle practice that involves food and beverage they can feel hurt, unappreciated, threatened, and even unsafe. Now more than ever, a growing number of individuals maintain special diets for medical, health, and/or religious reasons.
◾️ 1 in 10 US adults has a food allergy
◾️ 1 in 133 has celiac disease and 1-13% have non-celiac gluten-intolerance
◾️ 52% Americans followed an eating pattern/diet in the past year
◾️ 40% have diabetes or pre-diabetes
◾️ 33% follow a religious-based diet on a daily or weekly basis
So, how do you go about providing food options that are safe and inclusive — attributes critical for employee well-being and belonging?
When employees/attendees feel appreciated, respected, and know that their needs are being met, they feel more compelled to participate fully and make a difference.
