Intro to Food At Work Series
By Evergreen Refreshments / Oct 12, 2020
The landscape of every aspect of our lives has changed since the COVID-19 pandemic took hold of the country last spring.
The ways that we work and eat have shifted dramatically, along with almost everything else in our lives. Stay at home orders impacted businesses in a myriad of ways, and even as some industries return to work, the way they do business has changed. Keeping employees safe in their day-to-day is a top priority because now, one misstep could have lasting repercussions on the availability of your workforce for weeks or months.
But as employees do return to their places of work, keeping those employees happy, engaged, and nourished is a challenge many operations now face. For the office space, the way people eat at workmust change. Now, open cafeterias, crowded breakrooms, or a revolving door of employees coming and going during work breaks are no longer in an organization’s best interests.
With more than 40 years in refreshment services helping hundreds of companies feed thousands of employees, Evergreen Refreshments is uniquely positioned to see how companies are coping with this new normal. Here we are sharing the top trends on what smart companies are doing to meet today’s challenges to keep their onsite employees safe at work, happy, and fed.
In this blog series, we look at ways in which food at work is changing, and how employers can be ready to tackle evolving expectations for employee food safety at work.
