ESS North America delivers an innovative healthy lifestyle program to the Oil & Gas and Mining industries
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Feb. 10, 2014 /CNW/ - ESS North America, a member of Compass Group Canada, is the industry leader in providing food and support services to oil and gas, mining and infrastructure clients. In response to global client demand ESS North America is proud to introduce Tastelife, a health and wellness program developed specifically for remote and offshore workers globally.
ESS is currently implementing Tastelife with clients across Canada and the U.S. and promoting a focus on nutrition, physical and mental well-being. The program includes three core elements that combine to support an employee's healthy lifestyle:
- Nutritiouslife - Educates employees about the nutritional value of food choices they make on a daily basis while away from home and is managed by certified dieticians and nutritionists.
- Activelife - Educates employees about leading a healthy and active lifestyle.
- Leisurelife - Aims to create a fun, social and stress free atmosphere for employees while away from home for extended periods.
"A majority of employees in the oil & gas and mining industries do rotational shifts, which means they are away from home three to five weeks at a time. Many of our clients already understand that the health and well-being of their employees is important. Our Tastelife program provides scalable and easy to implement tools and resources for an employee," says Erin Meehan, President of ESS North America. "In addition, we have a duty of care commitment to ensure employees in remote sites have the resources necessary to keep their health and well-being top-of-mind".
Tastelife is one of the specialized nutrition and wellness programs ESS North America delivers to clients as part of Compass Group Canada's sustainability and wellness platform called BALANCE. BALANCE, provides Compass food and support services clients across Canada with focused programs, tools and information on wellness, environment, supply chain and community.
"ESS understands the unique needs of remote and offshore employees and are committed to giving them the tools necessary to take control of their health," says Donna Bottrell, Director of Sustainability and Wellness/RD for Compass Group Canada. "Eating healthy, staying active and making balanced choices for long-term health are important in whatever environment an employee works, and ESS makes it possible."
