Miratel Solutions, Inc. is a leading call center service in North America and a champion of worksite wellness, offering Meatless Monday and other healthy choices to their employees. Managing partner, Angela Puzzolanti tells us more about Meatless Monday at Miratel.
What is Meatless Monday at Miratel?
We do an inter-office blog that highlights meatless recipes and further encourages personal health by offering employees rewards for participating.
What do you hope to accomplish by encouraging employees to make Monday meatless?
By making our staff aware of the impact their food choices have on personal health and on the planet, we’re encouraging them to rethink their eating habits outside of work
Have you noticed any positive changes in the behavior and diet of your staff since the program’s inception?
It was eye-opening for a lot of our staff to hear of the impact of the meat industry. We see more and more people getting into Meatless Monday and sharing their recipes.
What tools and incentives do you offer those who choose to participate in Meatless Monday?
We provide meatless recipes for our employees to try on our blog. Going meatless on Monday also earns participants points towards prizes, like lottery tickets and vacation days.
What advice do you offer other employers who would like to start worksite wellness programs?
The more excitement and interest you can build, the better the chance of success. Encourage progress, be committed, promote both internally and in the community, and get staff involved!
