As diversity, inclusion and employee well-being have become CEO-level issues for companies in the last few years, the number of people (employees) who are following diets that meet medical, religious and/or personal beliefs has increased. For that reason, diversity, inclusion and dietary needs now intertwine, as the need to understand, respect and accommodate an employees’ special dietary needs in the workplace is necessary to allow them to bring their whole selves to work.
