With the easing of Covid-19 curbs and a “return-to-work” plan in Singapore, most employers are still allowed a Hybrid work schedule. A schedule where employees get to work remotely on several days while allowing their employees time to adjust and transit into this post-Covid new normal.
With fewer employees on-site, many companies with their own corporate dine-in cafeteria could experiment with more viable lunch food solutions without reopening their cafeteria.
Here are 3 lunch solutions to help improve the work environment:
1. REDESIGNING THE SPACE
Redesign and expand open spaces and create a “Living Space” within the office. This increases the interaction and reestablishes social connections with perks such as healthy snacks, fruits, premium coffee by baristas, and catered meals.
2. FOOD VENDING MACHINES
Operate hot food vending machines. Employees can swipe their E-card to unlock and take out a meal of their choice. Charges are wired via RFID technology or other cashless payment modes.
3. DIGITALISING YOUR CAFETERIA
Create a super Food App with nearby food partners and restaurant operators. Employees can place their meal orders while at work and skipping the queues. Orders can be collected at a designated collection point.
These are a few simple ‘win-win’ plans to create a safe, conducive and comfortable work environment to attract employees back to the office, yet maximizing the available space in the office.
