Improve Office Life During COVID-19
At this point, we are all very familiar with COVID and all the preventative measures, the health risks, the guidelines, etc., but how about the effects on office life? Due to this pandemic, the number of unemployed Americans jumped from 6 million to 21 million over just a few months in 2020. The number of US employees working remotely reached an outstanding 64%, according to SHRM’s COVID-19 Business Index.
Working remotely has benefited employees since it’s cheaper, comfortable, less time-consuming, more flexible, etc. However, there are many people who do not have the luxury of working from home. In fact, 36% of US employees do not have the opportunity to work from home. Variety FoodServices has established a few key food service innovations that allow your employees to be safely refreshed during their work day on-campus. You know that your employees are GOLD, but let us work together to make sure they know it too.
Innovation #1: Guest Restaurants
Guest restaurants service is a form of catering where we will bring in a different restaurant into your facility every day to serve lunch. This program offers a great variety of cuisines including; American, Mediterranean, Mexican, Italian, and much more! We will bring the restaurant dining experience to you!
This is very cost-efficient compared to a full-service café because this does not include overhead costs such as equipment, utilities, and food service staff. With guest restaurants, a new restaurant can be added to your building every day! Give your employees the variety and excitement in the lunchroom that they deserve.
Innovation #2: Self-Checkout Micro Markets
Micro markets are great for allowing employees to make their own decision to grab a quick snack or a whole meal. Employees working remotely do not have to worry about the COVID risks in the comfort of their home, but the 36% in the building do, which is why there are plenty of safety measures implemented in these markets making this an even stronger buying option.
Micro markets now can provide you with a touchless buying experience; all you have to do is download the app! Through mobile phone checkout, you can scan and pay for your product all through your phone and avoid more germs in doing so. Our fresh food products: salads, subs, wraps, burritos, and more are made in-house at our own commissary!
With the touchless buying experience, arm and foot handle for coolers are also implemented into the markets to reduce germs spread. Micro markets can sell just about anything, including PPE equipment such as face masks, medicine, sanitizers, and more!
Innovation #3: Pantry Services
Reimagine a simplified idea of food service where a refreshment provider stocks your pantry with snacks, beverages, fresh items, and coffee. This is very convenient for your employees because they can treat this service as their own pantry and grab whatever they would like for free!
The coffee refreshments use cutting-edge technology and brewers along with custom selections to provide your office with a great-tasting, freshly brewed cup of coffee. Variety will consistently stock and maintain your break room to serve as an excellent benefit to those employees working on site.
Innovation #4: Combo Programs
Variety would be happy to provide you with any combination services you would like to be your simplified foodservice solution: one bill, one contact, one phone call, one contract. We can be a “one-stop-shop” for your business and provide you with anything or everything that will boost employee retention, productivity, and overall well-being. From convenient snacks to complete meals, we’ve got you covered!
