Glass Tasty Oat Milk

Currently, one of the most popular incentives for team recruitment and retention is workplace snacks. Recent research indicates that the number of companies offering free snacks recently rose significantly to 32% (SHRM). Zerocater also found that 88% of employees consider it important for snacks to be provided, so this clearly highlights value for teams.

As part of your wider workplace culture, providing snacks is a great way of demonstrating care for your team members and their wellbeing. It’s just one simple step you can take to maintain a healthy, satisfied and productive workforce. The numerous benefits of providing workplace snacks include keeping energy slumps at bay and helping your employees save time and money from shopping elsewhere. So, if you’re considering providing workplace snacks to help fuel your team’s success, we’ve shared our top tips and recommended snack vending machines below.

Our top tips for {workplace} snacks

  • Make them easy to access: help your team take advantage of the snacks and beverages on offer using simple, intuitive vending solutions in spaces that experience regular footfall
  • Communicate your offering: let your team know what’s available and encourage them to feedback on any preferences and update you when there is a product they like, or do not like
  • Cater for all dietary requirements: if you have team members with a gluten-free or vegan diet, they’re going to want workplace snack options that reflect this
  • Encourage breakouts: taking a few minutes out from a busy day to enjoy a drink and a quick snack can help to energise your team and maintain productivity

“Any questions, we get a reply instantly, you are never waiting days for a response. I would recommend Your Refreshments and their products to anyone!”
