Most companies make it a priority to create a positive work environment for their employees. This can come in the form of team building activities, positive feedback, productivity incentives, and workplace wellness plans, just to name a few. A healthy vending machine at work is one of the easiest ways to enhance any workplace. Healthy vending at work provides easy, convenient and affordable options, and you just may be surprised to learn that it’s not just employees who reap the benefits.
Here are four benefits of having healthy vending at work:
1. Convenient access to healthier options
HealthyYOU Vending machines are loaded with a wide variety of healthier snacks, drinks and meals. An optional side vendor can also be added, giving the added option of eating a hot, healthy lunch without having to run out. This gives employees easy access to healthier food choices, that can support their personal wellness goals, as well as reduce the stress of running out for lunch when deadlines are looming.
2. Increased productivity
When employees are satisfied, they’re more productive. And when they’re healthy, they take less time off of work due to health issues. A recent study showed that employees who eat healthy throughout the day are 25% more likely to have higher job performance, and The Society of Human Resource Managers (SHRM) reports that employee health has a direct impact on job performance and attendance.
Another productivity benefit to healthy vending at work? HealthyYOU Vending machines are locally owned and operated. That means no sending the office manager or executive assistant out to shop for snacks and stock the break room. Employees can focus their attention where needed: on their work. We’ll take care of the rest.
3. Improved employee satisfaction
A healthy workforce is a happy workforce. When an employer makes sure their staff’s basic needs are within easy reach, it can be a big morale booster. Employees like to feel cared for on a personal level, and feel that their goals, both personal and professional, are supported.
4. Promote workplace wellness
The health and wellness of your staff can impact the success of your business through improved productivity and reduced absenteeism. However, it’s not just missed workdays that can wreak havoc on your bottom line. How effective your workers are while they’re actually at work makes a difference, and performance can be attributed to energy levels and overall health. Making healthier food choices during the workday can make a positive difference on productivity, performance, mood and morale.
