4 Benefits of Having A Healthy Vending Machine At Work
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 incentivize any workplace. Healthy vending at work provides easy, convenient, affordable and healthier snack options—and you just may be surprised to learn that employees aren’t the only ones to reap the benefits.
Convenient Access to Healthier Snack Options
During a busy workday, many employees simply don’t have the time to run out and grab a bite to eat. In a typical workplace, that may leave them with only traditional vending machine, junk food choices.
By introducing Healthy YOU Vending machines into your workplace, you can say goodbye to lunchtime food runs and afternoon sugar crashes—and hello to delicious and nutritious food options—all in the office.
Our healthy vending machines are loaded with a wide variety of healthier snacks, drinks and meals. 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. Plus, adding the optional SmartMart Side Vendor provides the option of eating a hot, healthy lunch right on site.
Increased Productivity at Work
When employees are satisfied with healthy, nutritious snacks and meals, they’re more productive. And when they’re healthy, they take less time off of work due to health issues.
Studies have shown that employees who eat healthy throughout the day are 25% more likely to have higher job performance and higher energy levels. Snacks like almonds, bananas, dark chocolate and granola, as well as drinks like water and green tea, boost brain power so your employees are ready to get the job done.
Another productivity benefit to healthy vending at work? Healthy YOU Vending machines are locally owned and operated. That means no more sending the office manager or executive assistant out to shop for snacks and take time from their busy day to stock the break room. Your Healthy YOU Vending operator will make sure your vending machines are stocked and running to perfection. Without the added stress of unnecessary stops, you can maximize workplace productivity. Employees can focus their attention where needed: on their work. We’ll take care of the rest.
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. Having easy access to healthy snacks, beverages and meals is a great way to give employees that boost.
And for the other odds and ends, Healthy YOU offers our SmartMart Side Vendors. These can be stocked with any necessary supplies that your employees might need. Whether it’s phone chargers, pain killers or pens, the SmartMart vendor can be stocked with a variety of products. And your employees will be happy to have it. No more runs to the store during the workday or asking a coworker for a charger. Instead, they can just pop by and purchase what they need while also grabbing a healthy snack from the vending machine.
Ensuring that your employees have easy access to these healthy options doesn’t only improve team morale, it also improves the relationships between employers and employees. With healthier food choices, many employees feel that their employers care about their health and wellbeing, making them more inclined to form those deeper bonds. Employees like to feel cared for on a personal level, and feel that their goals, both personal and professional, are supported.
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. Finding these healthy options may seem overwhelming, so having healthy snacks, drinks and meals conveniently accessible is a great way to offer your employees a healthy alternative without that overwhelmed feeling. Seeing that these options are available may encourage more of your employees to make their choices in favor of healthy and delicious, instead of just one or the other.
