Put wellness to work for your company!
Enjoy the fiscal advantages of a healthier, more productive workforce.
It pays to have healthy employees and you pay if you don’t! According to the Centers for Disease Control, productivity losses related to personal and family health problems cost U.S. employers $1,685 per employee per year. That doesn’t even include indirect costs from absenteeism, disability, and reduced work output.
Healthy employees are more focused, dedicated and productive at work. I’ve created a signature system to help your company and its employees improve and maintain their health in a simple and effective way.
The best bonus you can give your employees is total health! The good news is that people have more power over their health than they may think. Seventy percent of all age-related disease is related to lifestyle choices. One of the biggest culprits is stress. In fact, stress has been called the “health epidemic of the 21st century” by the World Health Organization and is estimated to cost American businesses up to $300 billion a year. Proper stress management can reduce employee absenteeism, work injuries, health costs, and worker turnover… giving your company a competitive advantage!
When I first met Brooke early 2014, her enthusiasm for improving your health was so infectious, it prompted me to finally accepted the charge to take control of my health choices. Brooke has a calling on her life to educate others on how to make better health choices and to equip them with the tools they need to be consistent. Her approach and passionate spirit made it so easy for me to commit to change. She charged us to find the “why that makes you cry” and that will become the focal point that enables you to change. On March 31st, Belk’s first official wellness day, I decided starting that day I would reduce my daily sugar intake. I immediately stopped drinking 1-2 soft drinks (Fanta Grape was my drink of choice) and abandoned my afternoon sweet binge (chocolate chip cookies were my sweet of choice). I also enrolled in a 12 week boot camp which was outside of my comfort zone because I hate to sweat. J I am proud to say I lost 10 pounds in 3 months. As a result of reducing my daily sugar intake by 75%, I also have more energy, focus, and emotional balance. In short, I Love The Way I Feel. Thank you Brooke for being the candle in the dark that is guiding so many of us on the path to healthy living.

I met Brooke in 2011 and immediately knew she was different than any other nutritionist I had met before. Her approach to health & wellness centers on lifestyle changes taken in baby steps and she removes the fear of the unknown by mapping out a plan that is simple and easy to follow. Brooke debunks many myths about health, fad diets & false marketing. She educates & motivates you every step of the way. Her positive attitude is truly contagious. While I started working with Brooke to benefit myself and my family, as the Head of Global HR for Mojiva Inc. I quickly realized the amazing impact she could have across my entire Company. Brooke presented from our San Francisco office and our New York office, each time we broadcasted her by webinar across the globe, as far as London. The positive feedback I received from our employees was even better than expected. We all made lifestyle changes together from revamping all of the meals, snacks & beverages brought into the office to organizing in house Yoga, lunch time bike rides and walking events. In addition to the energy around the office as a result of knowing how to make better nutrition choices, we also enjoyed various teaming events in our journey to fitness. Thank you Brooke for empowering our workplace!!
