07 Jul Why a Healthy Break Room Matters Now!
As we navigate through this new normal with COVID-19, making healthy food choices is becoming increasingly important for Phoenix employees. More now then ever people are understanding the connection between food and health. Employees want to consume food for the benefits of health and immunity. It is for this exact reason that a healthy break room matters in the office.
Healthy food and drinks have long been a hot topic in the vending and food industries. But, as of late, there has been an increase in the desire to truly understand which foods will help people stay healthy and increase their ability to fight any cold and/or viruses.
Studies have shown that in March there was a 27% increase in searches for ‘immunity dense foods.’ People now know that one of the best ways to protect your immune system is by consuming healthy and nutritious foods and drinks.
It’s clear why Phoenix employees are looking for a healthy break room. And, also just as clear how much of an impact that break room will have on their health.
Providing access to healthy food and drink choices in the break room means that you support your employee’s healthy lifestyles. However, the benefits of a healthy break room go beyond having healthy employees and supporting their healthy lifestyles. It will also benefit the workplace culture. Here’s what offices with a healthy break room notice:
- Reliable Employees. Increased health means that your Phoenix employees will be less likely to spend time out of the office due to illness.
- Increased office morale and employer appreciation. Employees will notice that you value their lifestyle choices. This will cause them to feel positive about their work environment and work harder.
- Increased energy. Phoenix employees who take care of their bodies tend to feel more energetic. Energetic employees are typically more productive.
So, providing nutritious snacks, meals, and drinks in your Phoenix break rooms is critical for a multitude of reasons. But, how are you going to do that?
A great way to bring more immunity dense foods into your break room is to install a micro-market. A micro-market gives your employees 24/7 access to nutrient-dense foods like fruits, proteins, vegetables, nuts, yogurts/cheeses, and low-sugar snacks!
Thorough hydration is also critical to employee’s health as it flushes toxins out of the body. Office water service gives your employees access to fresh, purified water all day long. So, installing water filtration is another great tool to support your Phoenix employee’s choices.
