The Best Lunch and Learn Ideas for Employee Well-Being

The Lunch and Learn or Brown Bag Sessions can be a standard in your successful wellness program. You can tailor your topics to share information that is relevant to your business and employees. Bringing in outside speakers can offer a refreshing change of pace without a large price tag.

To get you started on your Lunch and Learn program, we have gathered a big list of lunch and learn ideas for several areas of employee well-being. We’ve focused on the three areas of the wellness pyramid – physical, mental, and financial health, as well as some “professional wellness” ideas.
