As healthcare costs for employers have ballooned over the last 15 years in the U.S. (an increase of 6.5 percent in 2016 alone), employers are looking towards preventative measures such as wellness programs as a way to reduce overall healthcare costs while improving employee wellness. According to Forbes, 70% of U.S. employers currently offer wellness programs, and even companies that don’t have the resources to promote full-scale wellness programs are taking baby steps toward improving overall employee health by offering healthy vending at work.
As the nation’s leading healthy vending company, HealthyYOU Vending makes it easy for companies to get healthy vending at work and promote healthier eating by providing access to healthy snacks and drinks in the workplace—at no cost to the company. There are over 2,000 healthy vending products available including low-calorie, vegan, gluten-free and organic options. All of HealthyYOU Vending’s machines are locally owned and operated via their network of reliable operators so companies have the opportunity to support local small businesses in their own communities.
Going beyond healthy snacks and drinks, HealthyYOU Vending offers employers another way to keep workers on site instead of running out of the office to get something to eat. With the optional entrée/side dish vendor, employees can have access to a variety of entrées, soups, chili, stews, pasta dishes, hot & cold cereals, fruit cups, desserts and more.
A healthy diet has been shown to improve concentration, problem-solving skills and workplace productivity, while eating junk food can decrease mental clarity and job performance. Poor diet habits can also lead to increased fatigue, mental irritability and higher levels or stress and depression. When you bring healthy vending to your location, replacing sodas and junk food with nuts, dried and fresh fruit, and other healthier options can be a simple, viable, cost-effective part of any company wellness program.
All HealthyYOU Vending machines are made in the U.S., are ADA compliant, and provide 21 different healthy snack options plus 8 drink selections. The customer friendly machines are equipped with the latest state-of-the-art cashless vending technology capable of accepting Google/Mobile Wallet, Apply Pay & PayPal Mobile as well as other devices.
