You have the idea but you wonder if it won’t be too expensive or if it will actually be profitable to invest in feeding your team? Obviously, these questions are legitimate concerns. In response, we rely on our experience as a company that offers lunches to all its employees on a daily basis but also on some scientific studies to prove to you that yes, in fact it is always worth it to feed your team!
Here are some factors that will show you that feeding your team is not an expense but an investment:
Food is the simplest and most effective way to bring teams together and thus to promote communication! Whether you are looking to change the monotonous routine of meetings or simply to encourage your teams to share quality moments together there is nothing more beneficial than to gather around a good meal. Whether it’s a breakfast, a lunch or a cheese platter, your employees will be in the best position to meet and to build relationships.
In the area of inclusive management, feeding your team is a way of showing it consideration. Offering a lunch is a popular and fun way to value your employees and to thank them. FoodRelay allows you to do this while taking into account their preferences and dietary restrictions, an additional way to include every person on your team.
A strong employer brand
Salary is no longer the main criterion for selecting a company. When we know that millennials attach great importance to the factors associated to well-being, there is no room for doubt and investing in this direction becomes a necessity.
Offering meals to your employees allows you to nurture a collaborative and caring corporate culture.
Improved employee presence
There is nothing worse than an empty office. Especially when you want to develop and promote your corporate culture. By encouraging your team to eat well you encourage your employees to take care of themselves and therefore minimize the number of sick leaves and maximize office presence simply because your team will feel good.
By offering a lunch, you give your employees the opportunity to take a real break. We know that 20% of Americans spend their lunch time at their desks and that 19% do not have any meal breaks even though many researchers have repeatedly shown that food at work is a key factor in their employee’s performance.
Improving your employer brand also means minimizing the turnover of your employees. To do so, the best solution proven to date is simple enough: do everything in your power to make your employees’ lives easier! Take into account their everyday problems and provide them with effective solutions. Between work, outings and children it is not always easy to take the time to prepare a lunch. Give them the best solution, FoodRelay, and your employees will thank you for it. Happy employees are employees who stay!
