Benefits can make or break business efforts to attract great employees in a tight hiring market. Financially, snacks are a small cost in a benefits package when you’re paying staff $70,000+ per year, with recruiters’ fees and high office rents. Millennial talent in particular enjoy benefits which have an immediate wow factor.
Make snacking mindful and have an honesty jar for staff to contribute a dollar or two. Your staff will know you are offering a generous subsidy, as they would typically have to pay $3 or $4 for jerky or protein balls in a cafe. Alternatively keep snacks in the back room and put a few out each day. We can help to design a plan for you.

A comment we regular here but did you know, most offices are already spending thousands of dollars each year filling the biscuit tin or lollie jar. A big bag of mentos costs $100.00, don’t underestimate how fast this adds up. Cheap biscuits might be a bit cheaper yes, but remember because they aren’t satiating, most people will graze on a handful over the day. This mindless snacking habit is bad for the waistline but also means your costs go up massively. Our snacks are filling so you only need one.

Our energy levels naturally dip at 3pm and this loss in focus costs businesses a lot of money. When cafes close and the fruit bowl runs out, it can take 20 to 30 minutes to leave the office and find a mid-afternoon pick me up. Research shows that it then takes another 25 minutes to regain focus after being interrupted. So that is almost 40 – 50 minutes of lost productivity that can be easily avoided with a healthy snack at your desk. Consider the cost. 45mins lost productivity x average hourly rate x 50% of your staff, tired or out of the office.
