1 .<-NARRATOR:-> Now listen to part of a lecture on this topic in a business class.
1 .<-MALE PROFESSOR:-> For example, I used to work for a corporation that was having trouble with workers being absent a lot.
2 .To help address this problem, they hired a consultant, who began by interviewing a lot of the workers, and getting to know more about them.
1 .She also researched other aspects of the company, such as the types of eating facilities and health services it offered.
1 .And what the consultant discovered was that many of the employees were missing work, not for an obvious, simple reason like, say, lack of motivation,
2 .but because of...health problems...health problems that were the result of, or at least made worse by, a combination of factors such as poor eating habits and lack of exercise.
3 .The consultant concluded that since the company didn’t offer exercise opportunities or healthy meals, that this indirectly contributed to the workers’ poor health.
1 .The consultant proposed building a gym within the company office building for employees to use to exercise; and also to offer a more nutritious menu in the cafeteria.
2 .Which the company did, but it took a while.
1 .And after a year or so, after the company had time to construct a gym and revise its cafeteria menu, attendance began to improve.
2 .And continued to improve until it was no longer a problem.
