How Employers Can Encourage Healthy Eating at Work

There’s a revolution taking place in today’s corporate cafeterias.

AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA, August 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — How Did Office Cafeterias Go Gourmet?

If we could go back 30 years to ask the question: “What’s your favorite office cafeteria or restaurant?” we probably would have gotten quite a few blank stares in response. Such was the state of affairs for the much-maligned office cafeteria in those days.

Someone might’ve suggested the United States Senate dining room at the Capitol in Washington, DC — where politicians, lobbyists, and reporters rubbed shoulders (wearing formal jackets and dresses of course, per the dress code). But, despite the high-power guests and Federalist decor, the menu selections were as uninspiring as the signature Senate Bean Soup, which has been on offer each day for more than a hundred years.

The situation today is altogether different. As we’ll see below, hardly a month goes by without a major announcement of a new corporate cafeteria opening up that rivals anything in the local restaurant scene.

But like most revolutions, this transformation didn’t happen overnight. To get where we are today took a journey of more than two decades, starting with a new cafe concept in the San Francisco Bay area.

If you’re thinking about Alice Waters and her groundbreaking Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, you’re not far off. Waters has single-handedly helped develop the modern American palette and our appetite for eating locally grown food.

But there is another figure who helped transform the lackluster world of corporate and institutional cafeterias into the modern gourmand era, the restaurant entrepreneur Fedele Bauccio.

Larry Ellison, the co-founder of the software database giant Oracle, gave Bauccio his first big break in the corporate catering world of Silicon Valley, selecting his company to create a paninonteca, or Italian sandwich shop. Soon Bauccio’s company, Bon Appetit Management Company, opened a series of different cafe offerings at Oracle, each featuring a different cuisine.

Over time, Bon Appetit’s concept of providing high-quality, locally-sourced food took root all across Silicon Valley. The company now operates more than 500 corporate cafeterias at leading tech companies, including Adobe, eBay, Google, LinkedIn, and Yahoo. At Google’s Mountain View headquarters alone, Bon Appetit operates more than 30 different cafes.

The Top 5 Reasons You Should Introduce Healthy Food Options In Your Office
Is the trend toward upgrading corporate cafeterias on your radar?

We look at five reasons you might want to make the switch to offering healthier food options in the office.

1. Cafeterias That Support Your Brand Message Are Becoming An Essential Talent Recruiting Tool

Given the ongoing shortage of tech talent, leading tech and finance companies are making an investment in cafe amenities to build up their brand as a cool place to work.

The resulting transformation of the once mundane corporate cafeteria into a “must try” food destination hasn’t gone unnoticed in the culinary, restaurant, and food service industry, as this deep dive article by Bon Appetit (the magazine, not Fedele Bauccio’s company!) explains:

“Where boomers were swayed by sturdy 401-k plans and reliable retirement packages, today’s labor force—particularly those interested in tech-y and internetty jobs—are wooed by snacks, sustainability, and farm-to-cubicle ethics. And these companies are happy to keep them at the office longer, both in the span of a day and the span of a career.”

In other words, Millennials and Gen Z employees prefer to start their careers at companies that cater (pardon the pun) to their needs and desires, which skew toward workplaces with college campus-inspired open office environments, sustainable business practices, and healthy food choices.

Among these aspirations, it’s the latter one, healthy food choices, that often winds up as the most talked about amenity shared among their peers on social media. Indeed, Instagrammable food pics send a signal to their friends and followers (who, in turn, represent a significant pool of potential job recruits) that company X, Y or Z “is a cool place to work, just look at the food! #delicious.”

2. Skip Sad Desk Lunches. Use Mealtimes To Converse And Collaborate With Colleagues At Work

In a world where we are trying to kick-start worker productivity by encouraging spontaneous collaborations, corporate cafeterias offer a unique opportunity to connect with your co-workers while you savor your meal.

By investing in a central eating location, companies can avoid the food diaspora that occurs at lunchtime. At lunchtime, a certain percentage of employees head for the exits to partake in a longish lunch at some local establishment, while another group hovers worryingly around the kitchen mess, waiting for their moment to get a chance to heat up their salty microwave meal before they muddle through another “sad desk lunch.”

What a missed opportunity.

If you are concerned about lack of communication and missed opportunities for collaboration among your employees, then you should consider an investment in a new or upgraded cafeteria.

It can also help improve productivity by reducing those “long lunches” off campus. A recent study by Towers Watson indicates that having food available at work can save employees between 30 and 60 minutes at lunchtime.

Not sure how to go about it? Talk to one of our friendly Formaspace Office Design Consultants who will share their experience of creating cafeteria furniture for leading companies, such as CapitalOne and Twitter.

3. Good Nutrition Is A Cornerstone Of Good Employee Health

Companies have a reason to be concerned about their employee’s health, particularly due to the alarming increase in incidences of obesity and diabetes that are affecting American workers.

Increasing the activity of your workers at the office is part of the solution.

Getting up and moving around during the day is important; in fact, the negative health aspects of sitting for hours at a time has given rise to the phrase “Sitting is the New Smoking.” That’s why we recommend taking a look at our line of Sit-to-Stand desks, workstations, and conference tables. These innovative furniture designs allow you to change your seating position during the day, from sitting in a chair to standing, in order to improve your cardiovascular health. Taking breaks and walking throughout the day is also part of the solution, including taking a walk to the cafeteria.

Having a cafeteria on site is another way to help your employees live a healthier lifestyle.

Onsite cafeterias will encourage your employees to eat regular meals throughout the day. Research shows many Americans skip meals entirely during the workday. Serving proper portions of healthy food on a regular time schedule can help prevent/control obesity and diabetes.

You can also help “nudge” employees to avoid excessive calories by offering smaller plate sizes (which make us feel fuller with the same caloric intake) as well as changing the menu and recipe choices.

Consider reinforcing healthy eating choices in the cafeteria with other wellness programs, such as an onsite gym or workout facility.

For many employees, using a fitness app, such as MyFitnessPal, LoseIt or FitBit, can help reinforce calorie control and encourage a healthy, active lifestyle.

4. Rethink Food Offerings To Provide Healthier, More Sustainable Options

Companies like Google are taking the concept of calorie control a step further.

For example, the recipe for hamburgers offered at their cafeterias has slowly shifted to include more plant-based ingredients, such as mushrooms.

And healthier vegan choices are promoted more prominently on menus to encourage eating less meat.

It’s all part of Google’s overall plan to reduce the company’s impact on the planet by reducing consumption of livestock, dairy, and egg production that contributes to global carbon emissions.

What can you do at your company?

From birthday cakes to pizza parties, the office makes it difficult for individuals to control calories and make good nutrition choices. One place to start is by replacing sugary and high-caloric snacks with healthy alternatives. Phase out cakes and “treats” with healthy alternatives that have less sugar and more nutrient content. Eliminate pastries and other “treats” provided during long office meetings with healthy alternatives based on fruit and vegetables.

What about snacking throughout the day?

Snacking is not inherently bad. In fact, some nutritionists recommend we eat many smaller mini-meals throughout the day rather than two or three big meals. But we need to eliminate the temptation of sugary late afternoon snacks. Swap out the vending machine and replace it with healthy snack choices.

What if you don’t have a cafeteria at your office?

If you don’t have an office cafeteria, you can organize healthy potlucks where people bring healthy food options from home. For example, a salad club encourages each participating person to bring a special salad topping or side dish.

5. Teach Gardening, Food Preparation, And Cooking Skills For A Healthier Lifestyle At The Office And In The Community

Companies like Adobe and Google are now going beyond just providing healthy food in the cafeteria — they are using their kitchens as teaching tools to educate their employees about the food we eat.

Employees can participate in cooking classes taught by corporate chefs in specially designed kitchens that mimic the type of residential kitchen the employees have at home. These classes go beyond just recipes, they include learning about where food comes from (especially locally-sourced produce), how to be an educated food shopper, and, of course, how to cook healthy recipes at home.

This is an important effort, because many of today’s workers are very disconnected from food sources, instead, relying on pre-packaged, highly processed foods.

Companies can help by partnering with a local community garden, participating in farmer “shares” programs, or arranging buying trips to local farmer markets.

Programs such as these encourage your employees to become healthy food advocates in the communities where they live. You can reinforce this message by offering healthy food from your company garden to visitors and partner companies attending meetings at your facilities.

Summer Safety for Seniors

Promoting awareness of the effects of summer heat on seniors, Comfort Keepers of Shelton urges seniors and families to practice sun safety.

SHELTON, CT, UNITED STATES, August 2, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — When we think of summer, we think about outside activities: gardening, barbeques and pool parties. But the summer heat can have a greater negative effect on our senior loved ones. A little preparation can ensure that seniors are able to enjoy the season and participate in all the joys that summertime has to offer.

To highlight the importance of this issue, Comfort Keepers of Shelton is providing New Haven area seniors with tips and resources during the month of July.

“At any age, summer means feeling the sun on your face and making the most of the long days and beautiful weather,” said Mark McGoldrick at Comfort Keepers of Shelton. “At Comfort Keepers, we help seniors enjoy a healthy and active summer by providing services that allow them to experience their favorite activities while being mindful about the negative effects of heat – dehydration, sun exposure and heat stroke.”

Heatstroke is a condition that can affect anyone that is exposed to too much sun or hot weather. However, this condition can be especially dangerous for seniors. Comfort Keepers caregivers are trained to look for the signs of heatstroke, including:

– Confusion or sudden change in mood
– Increased body temperature
– Staggering or balance issues
– Flushed skin
– Fainting

For those that want to lower their risk, staying hydrated and cool is key. There are a variety of ways to get water through the day – eating fruit and vegetables, enjoying water flavored with fruit juice, and avoiding caffeine can all help seniors stay hydrated. And, it’s important for seniors and their families to remember that environmental factors play a huge role in summer safety. Having a hat or a parasol when going outside, using sunscreen, and ensuring that air conditioning or fans inside the house are working are all ways to help seniors stay cool and protected from the heat.

Everyone deserves to enjoy the summer season, no matter their age or the level of care they need. Being mindful about warm weather safety can ensure that seniors are able to enjoy the outdoor experiences they love.

In a recent survey conducted by Comfort Keepers, adults age 60 and over were asked to pick from a list of things that bring joy – whether that’s watching movies, looking at photos or feeling the wind in their hair. Of all the options, 25% of respondents chose “sunshine on my face” as the most joyful.

Verdeat – a Breakthrough Indoor Gardening System Debuts on Kickstarter This July

Developed to help us contribute to the ecosystem and eat healthier while saving money and resources

#verdeat #kickstarter #ledfood#ledplant #ledplantlight #plantlight#plantlights #growyourownfood #organics #organicgarden #organicfood #growingvegetables #eatmorevegetables #yummy #delicious #eco #fitness #indoorgarden #organicfood #smarthome #veggie

Verdeat, a hydroponics-based indoor garden grows high quality, flavorful vegetables and herbs, is about to join the Kickstarter crowdfunding platform this July.

MONTEBELLO, NY, UNITED STATES, July 3, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Verdeat was created with food lovers in mind. It’s able to grow up to 76 vegetables and herbs at once. All plants are constantly nurtured by an automated system that takes care of their every need: from watering to proper lighting. After planting seeds in a substrate (like coconut fibre), Verdeat does the majority of the job for the user and remains self-sufficient.

The cylinder-shaped system, with a diameter of 35cm, fits into any space from kitchen to living room thanks to its minimalistic design. The main plate is covered with vertical slots, where the user plants their desired seeds or sprouts. Three models offer varying numbers of plate floors.

Vegetables planted in Verdeat grow faster and ripen 40% sooner, than those cultivated in traditional gardens. They don’t contain chemicals and remain unaffected by weather conditions.

“Vegetables and herbs available in today’s groceries are often almost half as nutritious as their predecessors 100 years ago. That includes the amounts of minerals, protein and dietary fiber” says Robert Paluch, CEO and Founder. “Thanks to our solution, people can enjoy greens the way they should taste, with all the micronutrients in place, anytime they want, straight from their house”.

The device utilizes an innovative LED technology. It’s able to produce light with sunlike quality, adjusted accordingly by a set of smart sensors. All crops within the system are controlled and monitored by a mobile app that also measures water levels.

Verdeat is made of 95% recycled materials and designed to use only the most necessary resources. That includes everything from water to electricity.

The Kickstarter campaign is planned for July. The system will be available in 3 colors (black, white or gray) and in 3 sizes: S, M and L. A special initiative to present backers with, free seeds that can be planted in their area, is also planned and will be heavily encouraged during the campaign.

Manufacturers are focusing on developing equipment which offer less emissions but high fuel efficiency

Handheld blowers are widely used for residential purposes and continue to dominate the global leaf blower market due to high-power capacity, lightweight, and competitive pricing. With the increasing technological advancements and innovations, electric hand-held blowers are expected to witness a significant rise in demand.

A wheeled leaf blower or walk-behind type is designed to clear extra-large or medium-sized yards. It is more comfortable to use and generate less arm fatigue than other models.

Battery-powered products are a perfect choice for small-scale work projects

The gs powered leaf blower market is likely to witness an increase in demand as these models are able to perform heavy-duty tasks at reduced energy prices. The use of four-stroke engines that are usually lighter in weight and more powerful will increase the demand for gas-powered models. Makita offers a model, which comprises a four-stroke engine, with a two-stage air filter and maximum airspeed. The model consists of cruise control and high-muffler, which is expected to reduce work fatigue.

The electric-powered blowers segment is the fastest growing market. Due to the low noise level of the model, the demand is expected to remain high during the forecast period. Battery-powered blowers are a perfect choice for small-scale work projects. Professionals prefer medium-sized battery-powered blowers as they are lightweight and compact, thereby increasing work performance and efficiency. In addition, features such as low maintenance, and price affordability are expected to increase the usage of these equipment among professionals.

The rise in garden and backyard maintenance services is expected to increase the use of leaf blower in the residential segment.

The leaf blower market by application is segmented into residential and commercial. The commercial sector is gaining traction among users and is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 4% during the forecast period. Gas-powered products are the preferred choice among commercial users to perform heavy duty tasks. Further, backpack blowers are significant and capable to handle large assignments in the commercial sector.

The growing demand for maintaining pristine conditions of backyards or lawn areas is expected to fuel the growth of the leaf blowers in the residential segment. They produce low noise, which is expected to increase the preference among residential customers. Electric versions are considered as the most viable option; hence, vendors are significantly focusing on introducing tools with improved productivity and increased longevity.

North America dominated the market in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 4% during the forecast period

The leaf blower market by geography is segmented into APAC, Europe, North America, Latin America, and MEA. North America dominated the market in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 4% during the forecast period. The rise in professional users and the increasing adoption of garden-scaping tools and devices with enhanced features are propelling the leaf blower market in North America. The growth opportunities in North America can mainly be attributed to the development of product lines such as high-power efficiency, battery run-time, and ergonomics designs. Further, the implementation of the latest technology is expected to boost the demand for gardening equipment.

Due to the improving economic conditions, coupled with several technological innovations in the product line-up, the European leaf blower market is expected to experience significant growth during the forecast period.

Bright and varying (but matching) colors are the perfect addition to any yard. Plus, the degree of colors and exactly what the color comes from is entirely up to you. Colors can come from decorations, lights, or anything that makes you happy.

Plants Give Life to Your Yard

Gardening is either loved or loathed by most people. There is rarely an in-between. Unfortunately, for the people who usually do not like gardening, it is because they do not have a green thumb. The good news is, adding plants to your outdoor décor does not have be difficult. There are plenty of plants that are low maintenance and will thrive in a natural environment. Plus, you do not have to make your yard look like a jungle; simply adding life to it makes the yard more vibrant and inviting.

Get Creative

The most important decorating tip is to make your yard into an area that is comfortable for you. Get creative and have fun with it. Adding décor that make you happy is the only true way to make an outdoor space that you enjoy. Plus, in a creative environment, people feel fresher, rejuvenated, and in-tuned to their own sense of self. This will make guests more inclined to enjoy your yard as well.

In summation, Phaze Concrete is keen to help each of their clients and potential clients enjoy their outdoor surroundings. As is present in the tips Phaze Concrete revealed, the size of the yard does not matter. Rather, it is all about making the best out of the space you have.
