Consider adding Ticket Restaurant to your benefits package

A common occurrence during the pandemic was that many people gained weight. More than 60 percent of adults said they had gained unwanted weight since the pandemic began, according to an American Psychological Association survey. On average, people gained 29 pounds.

Whether you’re serving remote workers or employees coming back to the office, many businesses have created healthier eating arrangements for their employees to help them lose weight and keep it off.

Virtual cafeterias are serving the hybrid workforce

Virtual cafeterias have found an ideal spot in the back-to-work plans for many offices. With companies having to serve both office employees and those working remotely, the idea of having a full restaurant menu available for anyone is a significant benefit.

While there’s no standard setup for a virtual cafeteria arrangement, it can allow for individual choice. Some companies are paying for home delivery services for at-home employees. Others pay for meals ordered off a platform like an Uber Eats. Some companies have deliveries that come to the office. In general, the virtual cafeteria offers flexibility and convenience, which is exactly what companies and employees want.

Having food choices as a work perk or benefit is a great way to attract and retain top talent.
