Workplace Solutions, Building a healthy workforce.

Meeting WellTM is a planning tool offered by the American Cancer Society to help companies organize meetings and events with good health in mind.

What is Meeting Well?

Meeting Well is a guidebook that offers companies healthy food ideas and suggestions for physical activity that energize meeting participants and demonstrate how easy it can be to live a healthier lifestyle every day. Employees often eat one or more of their meals in the workplace. The food your employees eat and the amount of physical activity they get on a daily basis directly impacts their health. By eating well and being active, employees will feel better, have the energy they need to get through their busy workdays, and reduce their risk of chronic diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.

How does it work?

By organizing meals and activities for meetings based on the American Cancer Society nutrition and physical activity guidelines, companies can provide employees with an opportunity to make individual choices that may reduce their cancer risk. From small working-lunch meetings to major company functions, our program offers healthy food ideas and suggestions for physical activity (such as stretch breaks and group walks) that will energize employees and make your events more effective.

What can you expect?

Business meetings are much more productive when employees are enthusiastic and engaged. By utilizing the resources available through the American Cancer Society Meeting Well planning tool, companies demonstrate their interest in their employees’ well-being.
