Employers versus employees
If you’re looking to offer your employees greater value when it comes to food and drink options, but want a solution that is advantageous to your business as well, a micro market is the answer. The benefits of a micro market have the potential to benefit your organisation across many levels; both employers and employees will be able to see improvements in the way they experience the workplace.
Imagine being able to grab a meal, snack, or drink at any time of day without ever having to leave the office. That’s the reality of a micro market! A micro market never closes so you can satisfy cravings whenever they arise; perfect if you work outside normal service hours. Save time on dashing out for lunch and spend that time enjoying one of our toasties, salads, wraps, snacks, cold beverages, and more.
Healthy and nutritious
Gone are the days where you’d have to survive on a chocolate bar from the vending machine or a quick meal from the fast-food place down the road. The range of products offered in a micro market is expansive; far greater than traditional solutions like vending machines could support. Many are wholesome, nutritionally balanced options to help increase your wellbeing and keep you feeling your best.
Easy to use
Grabbing a snack from a vending machine is as easy as select, scan and pay. First, take whichever items you want to purchase off the shelves. Scan them at our self-service kiosk then select ‘Checkout’. Finally, tap your card or your phone to provide cashless payment. It takes just a few seconds to get your refreshment and be on your way.
Reconnect and relax
Having a micro market is like having a mini café right inside your workplace. It’s the perfect place to relax and enjoy your lunch or to meet with colleagues to socialise and collaborate. A micro market transforms your breakroom into an inviting social hub that not only fuels your meetings, but facilitates them.
A happier workforce
Providing your workforce with convenient meals, snacks, and drinks is a simple, but crucial, step in the path towards a workplace that your employees love to be a part of. Not only will employee satisfaction go up because they are well fed, but also because workplace perks let employees know that their organisation cares for them and their wellbeing. Employees that feel cared for are more satisfied at work, and in turn, more productive.
Save on cost and hassle
We take care of everything in your micro market – designing, constructing, installing, maintenance, and restocking – entirely free of charge. Traditional food and drink solutions – such as catering or a cafeteria – cost a significant amount of time and money to run. Cheaper options such as vending machines require regular maintenance and offer a very limited range of products. Micro markets are a no-brainer when it comes to cost-effectiveness as they provide significant value to your organisation with no hassle and no cost to you.
Adapt to the new world of work
The way we work has shifted massively within the past year, with many workers choosing to work from home for at least part of the working week. Workplaces are no longer just buildings we clock in and out of each day, they have evolved into social hubs where the amenities offered are more important than ever. In order to entice workers back into the workplace, you have to step up and make sure you’re offering them the best experience possible. Micro markets are an easy, cost-effective way to drastically improve the employee experience. They also cater to workers who now work outside of typical service hours or who only drop into the office sporadically, since they are accessible 24/7.
