Bright lights, big city, New York City has always been portrayed as the glitz and glam of America. Whether it’s on screen, on Broadway, or simply the scenes we replay of suits getting together to discuss big business its New York—there’s nowhere else quite like it.
As much as things have stayed the same they have changed. The business has evolved and so are business trends. The New York Times recently released an article discussing how the power lunch is out and how this emerging generation couldn’t possibly imagine sitting down at a white tablecloth establishment to talk shop. Heck, most people in business today hardly have time to eat lunch at all—it’s an afterthought.
Companies like Google and Facebook pioneered impressive employee perks and are continually proving that investing in your people grows your business like you wouldn’t believe. Unfortunately, most companies don’t have the facilities, manpower or funds to provide a full-blown cafeteria with on-site chefs. Enter Zerocater.
Zerocater helps hundreds of companies in all different industries like Buzzfeed, American Express, eBay, and more provide lunch as a perk without sacrificing productivity. Catered lunch to the office may seem like a cost, but it is, in fact, a smart investment. Beyond employee morale, catered lunch can actually increase productivity, which we all know leads to overall growth. Imagine if nobody had to scour yelp to find a decent place for lunch, walk there, and grab a bite that ultimately will end up being consumed at their desk while perusing the interwebs. Time = $$. We all know that!
We are in the business of helping other businesses excel in this changing work environment. Millennials are shaping not only the world but the workplace. We read about them all day long, the reality is that as the baby boomers begin to retire the effects of Millennials will be widespread. Don’t fall behind. Get ahead and shake things up. Your employees will appreciate it, you’ll appreciate it, and your continued success as an organization will too.
