Leigh Gallagher, the assistant managing editor of Fortune, calls out free food as one of a number of “power perks” which produce happier, loyal employees.

Here at Seamless, food is a huge part of everyday life – so when we were looking at perks for our team, a food program seemed like the obvious choice.
We introduced a food program that gives employees a weekly lunch “credit” for their Seamless food ordering account, which can be used any day of the week. Not only can our people order whatever they fancy, but they also get a 10% discount off every order they place while at work. The results from our employee engagement survey spoke for themselves – morale increased by 9% and we saw a 5% increase in the number of employees who said they were proud to work for us.
Thankfully for you, awesome Seamless food programs aren’t just restricted to Seamless HQ! We’re able to implement easy-to-manage programs in any business – and they’re not only super easy to use, they’re gentle on the bottom line, too.
