Research Shows Employee Concern Over Workplace Wellbeing
Friday is National Workplace Wellbeing Day and new Irish research shows that 93% of workers reported feeling more positive towards their employer as a result of enjoying subsidised meals in the workplace.
Over two-thirds, 72% of Irish adults working from home due to Covid-19, said they missed out on food services provision and wellness initiatives, normally provided by their employers, during the lockdown.
This is according to new national research carried out last month for Compass Group Ireland by Opinions Market Research.
Over half, 51%, of those working from home currently say they expect to return to the office within the next six months.
For those who normally enjoy food services within their workplace, 93% reported feeling more positive towards their employer as a result.
80% said it helps them to eat more healthily at work, and almost nine out of ten workers, 88%, believe that eating healthily on a daily basis impacts how they feel at work.
Compass Group Ireland recently launched its new Feedr app on the Dublin market, a Cloud Canteen service whereby employers can have healthy and tasty food delivered to the office or to employees’ homes.
The Feedr app allows individual users to select healthier choices from an extensive menu of 140 balanced meals that help boost physical and mental wellbeing.
