A few years ago, the appearance, decoration and typical furniture of these dining rooms were more reminiscent of a canteen or a cafeteria of a higher school than a space that conveyed the corporate image of the company and offered a quality service to both managers and to the rest of the talents of our human team. The canteens in the company should be considered and valued as valuable square meters that can help us save costs, motivate our staff and ensure that they enjoy a balanced daily diet that will allow them to perform and produce one hundred percent of their capacity . Do you want us to explain why? Keep reading…
Dining rooms in the company: a measure of savings
A first advantage of conditioning and furnishing a dining room in your company is the economic savings that it represents both for the company and for the human team .
- For the company. The company canteens avoid disbursement in vouchers and restaurant tickets . In addition, if the catering service offered by your company is not free, you can deduct part of the VAT you support for the bills of food, electricity, water, etc.
- For the human team. A person who lives far from his workplace, spends a significant part of his salary on breakfasts, lunches, mid-morning coffees … Conditioning a business dining room will provide immediate relief in your employees’ pocket , a relief that will result in a better perception of the company and, thus, in a greater degree of commitment to its corporate objectives.
Another less easy saving to count, but also remarkable when we talk about business canteens is the reduction of costs in work absences due to accidents in itinerant . An important part of the accidents suffered by employees on the way to or from their place of work are due to lack of attention , hurry to get to work on time or, all too often, by that inevitable somnolence of the after-dinner.
Dining rooms in the company: a measure of motivation
As you know, the flexibility of work schedules is one of the most effective measures to motivate our valuable team , strengthen their commitment to the company and improve their productivity. Conditioning a space where the human team can have lunch in less than an hour instead of making a longer break will allow us:
- Modify the schedules of entry and exit of the work so that the human team is more rested and yields more and better.
- To strengthen the ties between the members of the company and the different departments or areas of competence. This is one of the most notable positive consequences of modern business dining rooms, spaces where workers can meet , attend a course or a continuous training workshop, chat about their things while they have lunch or have a cup of coffee … In short: turn the classic dining room into a modern ” work cafe ” space .
Dining rooms in the company: a measure of health
A healthy worker is an active and productive worker . This is a maxim of the working world, a premise in which we can influence by designing balanced and nutritious menus served in that friendly, welcoming, ergonomic and functional environment in which the new dining rooms of modern and productive companies have become .
