Refreshments in the workplace aren’t just a matter of keeping your staff happy and productive. It also holds the key to creating a healthy and successful business. But managing the task of providing refreshments can be overwhelming. With a fully managed, healthy, on-site refreshment program, you get all the benefits of providing refreshments without any of the hassles. Your employees can enjoy healthy snacks, drinks, and meals without you having to do any heavy lifting. Moreover, with a variety of healthy options, you can ensure that your staff is happy and healthy while they work. This blog post explores why a fully managed, healthy, on-site refreshment program is a step in the right direction.
If you’re still on the fence about whether you need a fully managed, healthy, on-site refreshment program, we’ll give you an overview of how beneficial it can be to your workplace.
Some of the obvious benefits include aspects like increased productivity and reduced absenteeism, increased collaboration and engagement, improved employee health and wellness, reduced food waste, and less time spent managing refreshments. Studies by the HBR (Harvard Business Review) show that providing healthy snacks lead to a substantial boost in productivity. And providing healthy drinks, such as water and coffee, can also increase productivity by reducing break times and improving concentration. These programs usually provide healthy snacks, healthy drinks, and healthy meals. They also provide a variety of options to accommodate a wide range of dietary needs and preferences.
The fully managed, healthy, on-site refreshment program can help you save time and money in a variety of ways. You don’t have to worry about sourcing and storing refreshments. Nor should you worry about managing inventory, restocking, or maintaining your current refreshments. A fully managed, healthy, on-site refreshment program automates all these processes. Importantly, you can save money by not having to worry about sourcing and storing your own refreshments or about buying the right portion of refreshments.
An on-site refreshment program offers a wide variety of healthy snacks, drinks (including coffee & tea), and meal options. The likes of these programs may include fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts, granola bars, gluten-free options, low-calorie snacks, sandwiches, salads, soups, dairy-free snacks, vegetarian meals, vegan meals, and other foods that meet the standards of required nutrition. Your program provider can help you select the best options for your business, enabling you to meet any dietary needs your employees might have.
The aspects you should require when choosing a fully managed, healthy, on-site refreshment program include the following:
Before implementing a fully managed, healthy on-site refreshment program, you’ll want to decide on the best refreshments for your business. You’ll want to decide, through an audit perhaps, which refreshments best suit your unique needs and preferences. Decide what you want your refreshments to do for your business. Do you want them to improve morale and productivity? Is it reducing absenteeism and health insurance costs? Or are you looking to create a positive work environment?
You’ll also want to decide which refreshments best suit the unique needs of your employees. Once you’ve decided on the refreshments you want, you can work with your program provider to set up the program to automatically order refreshments based on your business’s needs and restock the same when needed.
Choosing to provide refreshments at work can benefit your employees, your business and your clients. A fully managed, healthy on-site refreshment program can go a long way in helping you achieve this. Here is the bottom line. A healthy on-site refreshment program can provide healthy options to your employees – with a direct, positive impact on their health, wellness, and overall productivity. You can also help reduce food waste and save time and money by not having to manage the refreshment program.
