Great staff experiences, food and events help to grow team cultures that spark happier, more productive employees.
Our earth is capable of producting some amazing things, but we need to make sure we play our part to keep it that way. Sustainability affects any aspect of what we do, whether it's nutrition, architecture, reducing our carbon footprint or waste management. All of us can contribute to a more sustainable food environment.
Hampr believes in the mission of the following organisations:
One Tree Planted is a charity with a mission to help global reforestation efforts. The organization is built on a network of individuals, businesses, and schools who either donate monitarily or volunteer to help plant trees around the world.
Rights belong to each of us, but every day they are abused or denied throughout the world. Amnesty International works closely with indigenous communities and asylum seekers to combat discrimination, unfair detention and demand for security and a fair system of justice for all.
The Two Good initiative began as a Kings Cross cook-out for the area's less fortunate. 10 years on, they launched their 'Eat one, treat one' model, where every meal purchased, they will give an identical one to a local women’s refuge for domestic violence survivors.
OzHarvest is Australia's leading food rescue organisation, collecting quality excess food from commercial outlets & corporate offices to more than 1300 charities supporting people in need across the country.
Biopak is the first packaging company in Australia to become carbon neutral. Biopak promotes sustainable packaging supplies made from plants, for businesses and corporates who, like us, want to preserve and protect the environment for current and future generations.
Bueno System's vision is the balance between the world we build and the natural environment. Bueno offers operational technology and resource management to organisations striving to optimise energy consumption and reduce carbon emissions.
There are many reasons why promoting healthy practices in the workplace is important, particularly for those employees who eat most meals at work or food supplied by the workplace.
The workplace is in a great position to encourage and support workers making healthy food choices and learning about them. Here are some strategies that you can sue through business practice, weather and people-centered approaches to improve healthy eating and hydration in the workplace.
Each of these approaches can be introduced one-by-one, and complementary benefits are achieved as more are practiced in combination.
Identify a balanced food strategy for your workplace, based on the requirements and goals of the collective team. Implement a plan covering all dietary elements, including both food and drink. Schedule catering for meetings and social events that align with your company's objectives.
Negotiate removal of high sugar and fat foods such as biscuit jars, soft drinks, chocolate or cake from the workplace and replace these with healthier alternatives such as nuts, seeds, fruit and vegetable snacks.
Provide on and off-site physical activity (e.g. yoga, pilates, volleyball) after talking to staff about their preferred class type and schedule.
Create a sustainability group within your team. Educate and encourage staff to implement sustainable lifestyle adjustments e.g. reduce the use of plastics and non-recylable materials.
Create a sanctuary-focused group within your team, focusing on improving the environment you work in. Maximise natural light, add plants, audit ergonomic design.
