Productivity losses linked to absenteeism and presenteeism from chronic illnesses and injuries cost U.S. employers $2,945 per employee per year. That number includes sick days, short-term disability, long-term disability, and impaired job performance.

According to the Workforce Institute, a company of 5,000 hourly employees has the potential to reduce costs by over $7.9 million per year, or 3.2% of total payroll.

Wellness Talk Options: Alix offers talks ranging from 30 to 60 minutes with 15-20 minutes of Q+A after all talks.

Custom Corporate Wellness: Because the culture in every organization is unique, Alix creates wellness talks around specific culture needs.

Why Diets Don’t Work and What to Do Instead: Diet culture is at an all-time high; people are addicted to the scale, have low energy, hormonal issues, and feel stuck in the diet cycle. In this talk, Alix explains why diets don’t work and how people can get unstuck.

Cultivating a Healthy Relationship with Food and Your Body: Many people struggle with nutrition and health because they don’t have a solid foundation of HOW to fuel their body. Unfortunately, this is not taught in school, it primarily comes from our parents or peers and an unhealthy diet culture, which often leads to an unhealthy relationship with food and your body. This can wreak havoc on every other area of someone’s life – their health, personal relationships, career, mental health, etc. Through my talk, people will walk away with a better understanding of:

  • How food impacts both our physical and mental health.
  • How to eat to support our physical and mental health.
  • How to pull ourselves out of body image triggers and cultivate self-compassion instead of judgement and punishment.
  • Tactics to achieve a peaceful relationship with food and our bodies.

Potential Audiences: Any organization that cares about employee and member wellness, including for-profit businesses and not-for-profit organizations and associations.

Previous Engagements Include:

As the program manager of the Employee Engagement department at ACTIVE Network it’s essential that I provide programming that is approachable and supportive for all of the employees at ACTIVE. “All” being key. Whether it’s a well-versed nutritionally sound employee or someone with very little knowledge or nutritional knowhow, creating an environment where everyone can learn and pursue their Best Life is fundamental. Alix provided this. She presented an educational seminar on nutrition that was easily understood and inclusive of all levels of understanding, creating key take-aways that empowered the attendees with easy-to-apply nutrition essentials. She presented herself in very personable manner, even her attire communicated her laid-back but professional approach to living a healthy life. Not to mention, her seminar has been our most highly attended lunch-and-learn yet. I’m excited to continue partnering with Alix in the future. I know the employees of ACTIVE are too. Thank you Alix.

We work with people with intellectual and physical disabilities. Alix spoke to our group (parents of adult children with special needs and those with physical disabilities). Her talk was informative, easily understood, but most importantly, easy to implement. She helped them understand the basics of nutrition and answered many questions specific to our groups unique needs.

Alix gave me all of the tools I needed to focus on my health and wellness without any of the judgement I so often feel! In one hour I learned more from her than I had in my 20 years of life about diets and healthy eating. She didn’t give me any more restrictions or points or complex systems—just real, honest information about my body , its needs, and how to balance that to create a healthy relationship with the food I eat! One hour and my relationship with food and dieting changed forever.
