Well fed not fed up
Many employers who run offices and other businesses throughout the UK are always looking for ways of retaining and promoting a happy workforce and one way to do that would be to make sure that the staff are well fed rather than fed up, and one way to do that is by offering workers access to fresh fruit . In todays complicated working environment the task for an employer is not just finding people who can do a good days work for them but also finding ways of keeping them happy and motivated. In a recent survey, 87% of staff who were questioned said that they would rather work for a company that offers health and well-being support and advice and the specialist fruit supplier to offices, Fruitful Office asked their customers for feedback on their delivery service and a resounding 80% of respondents said that the general quality of life in the office had improved as a result of fresh fruit being made available to staff. Most of us know about the government mantra of five portions of fruit and veg per day but not all of us perhaps understand why a regular intake of fruit is so important to us. The modern environment that we live and work in exposes us to more toxic fumes, pollution and stress than our bodies have had to deal with previously. We actually need more minerals and vitamins to counteract this exposure than ever before and eating fruit is a straightforward way of supplying your body with enough nutrients to contend with the rigours of our daily life. Fruit is also a great source of antioxidants which we need in our body to remain healthy and from an employers point of view , anything that can be done to ensure that a workforce is in good health will be a positive aspect in reducing absenteeism through illness. Any amount of surveys will tell you what we already know about the benefits of healthy eating but it is worth considering what benefits an employer will gain from the cost outlay of supplying fresh fruit in the office or place of work. The positive message that it sends out that you care about your employees as people and not just workers will more than likely be repaid by greater productivity and loyalty. If you have decided to try out a fruit delivery service to your workplace, make sure that you find a company that can offer you a good variety of seasonal choices as well as the usual favourites such as grapes and bananas. As a basic guide and to get the most benefit from a fruit basket delivery you should probably consider asking for a minimum of at least five varieties in each delivery. Enjoy the benefits of a fruit basket delivery to the workplace and see the potential benefits to the bottom line for the business.
