Listen Now: Free Food
Some people don’t like working from home—but not because of what they’re doing, but what they’re not eating.
For many people, one of the perks about office life is a free lunch. Companies have chefs, made-to-order lunches and delivery services to feed their hungry workers. And in some lucky cases, that perk is free.
Now people are left to their own kitchen skills, and it’s not going well. According to a survey from DoorDash, 53% of people say they missed a deadline or other work matter while making food at home. The survey also found 85% of people feel regular food deliver would improve their job satisfaction.
So DoorDash is delivering. According to Forbes, 5,000 companies have partnered with the service to provide free food to people working from home.
Options include expensed meals, group orders, employee gift cards and catering. In fact, food is so important, in that same survey, people rated it as a perk above vacation and health care.
Turns out the way to your employees work ethic is through their stomachs.
