A major trend in recent years is offices getting fruit delivered along with other snacks for their employees. The days of the vending machine and the processed snacks within seem to be turning into a memory as offices try to focus more on their employees than their absolute bottom line.
Why choose fruit anyway?
Forward-thinking companies are always looking for new ways to show their employees that they have a vested interest in their well-being.
Many offices have food delivered and roughly ⅓ of people polled stated that they use third-party services at least. The challenge for many office administrators is that while they want to be able to provide the service, there are only so many hours in a day.
Adding ‘fruit picking’ and ‘kitchen arrangement’ to an already busy day can lead to repetition and possibly not getting the best possible fruit.
ThirdLeaf NW takes much of that guesswork away. We select locally-sourced, seasonally-relevant fruit to go out to businesses. We hand-select and taste test all of the fruit that comes in to make sure flavor and freshness are top priority.
Healthy people are happy people
The numbers are apparent. According to an article from Business Recognition and overwhelming 87% of employees would prefer to work somewhere that takes an interest in their well-being.
An equally-astonishing 80% of people stated that having fruit in the office improved their overall quality of life and job enjoyment. Having fruit in the office also creates habits in employees which get carried out of the workplace.
Simply put, with a healthy fruit option readily available, people eat more fruit. The satiating of a sweet tooth and a rewarding crunch is often enough to detract from processed, less-healthy snacks.
Office delivery done easy
We don’t mean to invoke Ron Popeil but one of the best features of having food delivered to your office is that; to a certain extent, you can set it and forget it!
