- How Compass can take care of the wellbeing and nutrition of your employees
- The “Designed with Health in Mind” research
As a global food service company, we recognise that we have an enormous impact on what our 20+ million consumers choose to eat and drink.
We make a positive contribution to their diet and nutrition at work and we are proud of the role we play in promoting the benefits of good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle, particularly, as in some of the markets where we operate, the food we provide may be the only nutritious meal eaten by our consumers that day.
By pursuing a passion for wellbeing and nutrition, we help our consumers and employees adopt a more balanced lifestyle. We help our clients to deliver improved employee performance and satisfaction, which, in turn encourages our client to retain our services
We fund and drive thought leadership in nutrition at work and healthy lifestyles in all our major geographic territories. Just one example of this was the “Designed with Health in Mind” report commissioned by our colleagues in Compass Group UK & Ireland. Footprint Intelligence was commissioned to conduct a piece of independent research on how to use the psychology of healthier eating to encourage consumers to eat more healthily at work.
The extensive research for this report comprised of a mix of desk-based research and semi-structured interviews with foodservice experts and psychologists, as well as other opinion leaders linked to the food service industry. In total, over 60 experts were interviewed. An industry focus group also brought operators, producers and pressure groups together to debate the issues.
The “Designed with Health in Mind” research explores how understanding consumer psychology can influence healthier choices and, ultimately, improve the national diet. The report takes a fresh approach to healthy eating, acknowledging that education and willpower alone are not enough. It also highlights the work of the foodservice industry in implementing changes that have encouraged healthier eating out of home and outlines the “nudges” industry can use to promote healthy behaviours.
