The prevalence of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), especially cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer, is on the rise in Malaysia. Modifiable risk factors such as sedentary lifestyle, poor diet and excess body weight are having a large effect on the risk of NCDs. A 2012 study in the journal Population Health Management found that employees who consume unhealthy diets were 66 percent more likely to experience a loss in productivity than their counterparts who regularly consumed fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

Corporate Wellness
The majority of the world population is in the working-age group. This group spends most of their waking hours at workplaces. Achieving healthy eating habits and reaching physical activity goals are virtually impossible. Worksites, which are communities with their own social networks and infrastructure, can provide opportunity to deliver messages that encourages healthy eating behaviours.

Corporate Wellness
Well-designed worksite-based health programmes have shown positive impacts on employee health. Environmental changes that support low-cost, healthy food choices, places for physical activity and group-based health education classes have been demonstrated as components of successful worksite interventions.
