A good break room will make or break (excuse the pun) your Seattle, Tacoma, or Puget Sound employee retention efforts. It’s hard enough right now to attract and retain good quality employees. Don’t make the mistake of scrimping on your break room to save money. From high quality vending machines with the latest technology to open concept micro-markets, your business needs to consider the break room an employee benefit and contract services accordingly.
Technology delivers a more positive experience
If your employees are back at the Seattle, Tacoma, or Puget Sound office, they are spending 40 plus hours a week inside your business. This doesn’t include customers and guests to your facility. They get hungry and thirsty. However, leaving the building isn’t always the most desirable option. Enter break room refreshment which includes vending machines and micro-markets.
At Vista Vending, vending machines and micro-market have been our main focus of business for years. We know how important it is to optimize the vending machine. This is especially true when hoping for better employee retention. By optimizing the vending machine with the latest technology, you ensure a pleasing experience for employees and customers. One important optimization is in the form of what payment is accepted. Seattle, Tacoma, or Puget Sound residents are used to being able to pay seamlessly with credit cards and sometimes even mobile pay options. These types of payment options need to be present in your break room vending machines to ensure success.
New solutions create a break room oasis
While vending machines are a great solution for getting refreshment at your Seattle, Tacoma, or Puget Sound workplace 24 hours a day, there are newer, more trendy solutions. A micro-market can transform the break room into an eye-catching destination that invites employees in. Custom layouts and fixtures that match your company’s decor complete the transformation. The break room is now welcoming and modern, which translates into better Seattle, Tacoma, or Puget Sound employee retention.
Open concept offers more options
A micro-market isn’t successful with employee retention simply because of the way it looks. A micro-market impresses employees because it’s open concept. You can browse products, picking the fresh food, snacks, drinks, etc. Look at the ingredients or nutrition panel. View the item inside.
Micro-markets also utilize wall space, allowing room for more product variety than any vending machine. Plus, without moving parts like spirals, there is never the chance of a product getting stuck. That means no money is lost due to a mechanical malfunction.
Technology also enhances the experience in a micro-market. The self-checkout kiosk is fun to interact with and ensures all modern cashless payment types are accepted. It can even be used for corporate messages and recognition, which can show on the screen, in between transactions.
