The Benefits of Breakfast Catering for Employee Morale

Dec 14, 2023 | Catering

When you’re in a rush in the morning, breakfast can be the last thing on your mind. If this is true for you, you’re not alone! Almost 42% of all workers surveyed by ezCater said that they don’t have time for breakfast on their way to work. There’s many reasons why a person might skip breakfast in the morning. In the rush of the morning and everything that goes with it (school drop offs, ironing clothes, lunch packing) it can be difficult to find time to prepare a nourishing breakfast for yourself. So, it’s no surprise that your staff might also get to work hungry! 

Since this is a widespread trend, offering healthy breakfast options to your employees in the morning can do wonders in improving employee morale, workplace productivity, and company culture as a whole. 

Incentivize Time Spent in the Office

For employers of hybrid businesses, it can sometimes be a challenge to incentivize more workers to make the commute to the office space itself. In this case, offering free food and quality breakfast catering options can be a great option for incentivizing your staff to spend more time in the office space. 

If your staff know they won’t have to worry about making or buying their own breakfast, and that they can get a delicious catered meal when they arrive at work, it is more likely that they will make the commute to the business office more regularly. What’s more, offering corporate catering options in the morning creates a gathering space for staff at your office to socialize and mingle before they jump into their busy schedules for the day. This breakfast meeting time can foster employee engagement and reinforce company culture. 

Hunger and Productivity

When you’re hungry your glucose levels drop, making it even more difficult to focus on the things that need to get done. This is because your brain needs fuel in the form of food to work effectively. With this in mind, it’s important to link hunger to decreased productivity and increased distraction. When you come to work hungry, you miss out on crucial nutrients that can power your body and mind throughout the day. 

As an employer, not only is providing breakfast to your employees a great thing to do, chances are it also will increase their overall productivity, concentration, and mood. No longer will people be watching the clock for their lunch break! When everyone in the workplace has had a great breakfast, they’ll be able to be present in their work and relationships with one another.
