Working practices are constantly changing and good employers are always looking for new initiatives to keep their staff happy and productive.

Let’s face it, no business owner wants their staff to be unhealthy, miserable or unproductive – it’s not good for their employee or their business.  And we all know that one negative employee can have a knock on effect on their colleagues too, bringing your entire staff to despair!   Not a great place to be in if you’re wanting to get maximum output from your workforce!

So, here’s our 6 benefits of sandwich deliveries to work premises – both to staff and employers alike:

  1. Employees feel valued

To know that you, as their boss, have taken the time to select a reputable sandwich delivery company to come to your premises for the benefit of your staff, makes them feel really valued and part of the team.

  1. Healthier employees

A good sandwich delivery company will offer a range of goods, including many healthy option choices for your staff.  Because of this choice, they’re more tempted to try out new items they wouldn’t necessarily try if they were to buy the ingredients themselves.  And the other benefit is that peers very often stick together – if one colleague is choosing healthier options, the chances are that they will influence their workmates to do the same!

  1. Increased energy

When you engage with a sandwich delivery company to come to your premises, they usually pitch up at the same time every day.  You may not think this is important, but if you consider the energy levels of your staff and their work schedules, they will know when they’re going to get a break in order to restore their energy levels for the work tasks of the afternoon.  Equally, if they have a task to complete that day, you’ll be amazed how quickly it can get finished if they know when their food is being delivered!

  1. Increased productivity

Following on from point 3, the more energy your employees have, the more productive they’ll be.  And if there’s a task that’s bogging them down, you’ll be surprised by how a regular, diverse and welcoming sandwich delivery can be!

  1. Employee retention

It’s a well-known fact, that if you’re good to your employees, have their interests at heart and offer benefits over and above the standard work contract, you’re bound to retain your staff for longer.  Employing good staff is paramount to the growth of your business, but having to continually replace them because they’ve resigned, is a very costly exercise indeed!  And if you’re looking after them, even a mediocre employee could surprise you!

  1. Social interaction and team building

Probably one of the biggest benefits to contracting a sandwich delivery company is the fact that it provides an opportunity for your staff to socially interact with each other and form great working bonds.  Team building is particularly important in business, because at the end of the day, if your employees are not all singing from the same hymn sheet, so to speak, they’ll be implications for your customers.

Also, if you’ve got a project that involves different departments that need to work together, they’ll have the opportunity to get to know one another personally over lunch.  And this will develop into better cohesion when working through projects together.
