As most employers will agree employee engagement and retention is their most important priority as companies want to attract and retain the best talent where ever possible.

It’s not all about sales when it comes to business, it’s the people behind the scenes that make a company what it is. However, it’s not without a strong bond between all the colleagues.

You want your employees to be at their best every day, but if you notice a lack in productivity, maybe it’s not down to the employee, it may be down to the culture and atmosphere within the company. How can you change that?

This is where food, feedback and listening to feedback play a huge part in increasing productivity.

Looking forward to dinner time

More companies are offering dinnertime solutions to their employees. This is ranging from, vending machines, breakout areas with vending machines and micro-markets. This can lead to a healthier workforce and boosted productivity, offering your employees a healthy lunch option boosts morale and encourages collaboration.

If people are enjoying dinner together, they’re more likely to socialise with each other. Even if it’s through different departments. Stronger inter-department relationships lead to efficiency and better collaboration.

Stock up with favourite snacks

If you’re thinking about adding a vending machine to your business, then take the time to ask your employees what type of snacks and beverages they would want in the machine.

Healthy snacks provide the boost people need to maintain energy and concentration at work. Snacks tend to draw a wider audience, so stocking the vending machine with snacks (that people want) can provide a wide range of benefits to your company.

Vending machines

Vending machines have proved they’re a valuable asset to businesses, with the many benefits they provide people every day. These machines come in all different shapes and sizes. You have the Bevmax’s, The Merchants, Neo, the Vitro’s and many more.
