BetterWorks, the company that helps small and medium-sized businesses “Make Work Rewarding”, is expanding its perks platform to address one of the most common office needs -- catering. Corporate catering is an easy and proven way for companies to increase employee productivity and engagement. Employers can now use the BetterWorks Perks Platform to easily manage large food orders through the same experience they already know and use to recognize and reward employees, thus eliminating the need for third-party catering systems.
“Most companies spend hours dealing with food orders for the office,” said BetterWorks CEO and Co-Founder Paige Craig. “BetterWorks Catering is the first solution to combine time-savings along with an incredible discount for office meals. Managers can feel good about rewarding their employees with a team meal and business owners are confident they’re saving money and time in the process. Catering is a natural extension of our BetterWorks Perks Platform to tackle the common headaches associated with providing these types of perks. Providing meals to employees is a low-cost perk with high return. Catered meals are a great way to invest in your workforce. It helps them stay focused and gives employees the chance to bond and create more productive relationships between individuals and departments.”
With BetterWorks Catering, meals can be quickly scheduled for delivery or pick-up from a wide variety of local restaurants. The Real Time Order Estimator displays a dynamic count of how many people each order will feed, guaranteeing that every meal is always precisely the right size. Every catering order also comes with VIP Customer Care, ensuring orders are accurate and on-time.
The standard corporate catering order on BetterWorks costs $8-10 per person, and companies that cater a meal generally average at least an hour in additional productivity from each employee they serve. That high ROI appeals to businesses of every size, which is why companies like Tesla, Klout, Adaptly and Docstoc have already begun using BetterWorks to cater office meals.
Docstoc Office Manager Keshni Krisithika tested the catering feature prior to its official launch. Docstoc orders office-wide meals at least twice a week for its 30 employees, and Krisithika said BetterWorks Catering made the process significantly easier.
“We ordered from Panera, and the order was excellent,” Krisithika said. “The portions were perfect, and all the utensils and serving platters were provided, which made it easy for us to set up and clean up. We will definitely use BetterWorks Catering going forward because it was so easy and convenient."
BetterWorks Catering is available in all of the company’s serviced cities, including Los Angeles, San Diego, Austin, San Francisco, and select parts of New York. Initial catering partners include a wide range of restaurants, such as The Stand, Subway, Tacone, El Pollo Loco and Panera Bread.
