More than ever before, employers understand the tangible benefits of maintaining and enhancing their employees’ physical health. However, a broader focus on physical and mental health strategies – one supported through facility design tactics – can yield a significant, positive impact on dairy manufacturing capacity and worker productivity.  In fact, the future workforce will seek out those dairy food manufacturers who are promoting a comprehensive approach to health and wellness. 

IDFA and the experts from IDFA Gold Business Partner Hixson Architecture & Engineering presented a new webinar that looked at ways in which facility design can help employers improve the health and wellbeing of their employees by:

  • Providing practical, cost-effective facility design strategies which address employee physical, mental, and even social health.
  • Demonstrating real-life examples of solutions and reviewing their effectiveness.
  • Describing how solutions can increase productivity, decrease lost time, and improve employee attraction and retention.
