Micro Markets are a Great Employee Perk

You may have heard of different companies offering unique and highly-coveted employee perks, such as on-site childcare or a fitness center with classes. Some businesses even let employees take sabbaticals if they are needed. These all sound pretty great, but sometimes the cost of these programs is more than a smaller business can manage to do.

One easy implement and less expensive employee perk is the micro market. These are almost like convenience stores within your company’s building, but they’re also much more than that. Micro markets offer great-tasting food and drink while promoting healthy options, so your employees can make the right choices throughout the day.

There are several benefits to installing a micro market in your company’s building. Here are a few of them.

Lots of Snack Options

Micro markets offer more food options than traditional vending machines do. You can have all sorts of chips, pretzels, cheese curls and even some healthier snacking ideas, like fresh fruit and vegetables. This will empower your workers to decide on the right snack for them that day. Sometimes, they may want veggies and dip to help them stick to their new diet. Other days, they might want to splurge on a candy bar. If you let your employees have more snack choices, they will appreciate that. They’ll see this as an asset or perk of the job, rather than just mindlessly going to a vending machine and grabbing some potato chips.

Enable Employees to Eat Right

Another great benefit of micro markets is that they encourage healthy eating. Because these aren’t just vending machines, you can offer workers delicious fresh salads, sandwiches and much more. Also, since these items aren’t trapped in a standard vending machine, employees can look at the calorie count and nutrition information, along with the portion size. This will help them determine whether or not that particular item would be a good choice for them.

Convenience Isn’t Just for Customers

As far as simplicity goes, micro markets are much better than vending machines. How many times have you purchased something from a vending machine, only to have it get stuck and your money not refunded? Then you’re stuck with no food and less money than you had before. Not only that, it’s a waste of your time, as well as the person who has to come and fix the machine.

With micro markets, you don’t have to worry about this, because there’s no “vending” involved. This decreases employee frustration and allows them to be more productive since they’re not wasting time waiting for a product to vend.

It should be obvious to you by now that adding a micro market to your building or office campus will benefit employees in several ways, not least of all by boosting productivity. These are truly an employee perk that will be appreciated by many.
