South Catering Launches Healthy Snack Box Delivery Scheme for Employees Working from Home
South Catering, market-leading provider of high-end, service-led chilled food for the workplace has embraced the need to pivot during uncertain times in launching WellBox, a rather brilliant business idea allowing employers to reward staff working from home with curated boxes of healthy snacks.
The WellBox range of nutritious snack boxes are designed to boost employee morale and energy, provide healthy snacks and improve productivity for individuals working from home. With many companies deferring their workforces’ return to the workplace until the end of the year, an urgent ‘working from home’ employee care package needed to be put in place across the UK and WellBox offers just that.
“Companies across the UK are facing unprecedented challenges without any sort of ‘How-to manual’, we knew we had to move quickly to help employers support their workforce working from home,” said South Catering Director Justin Gilchrist. “Our research has shown us that large employers, especially within the service sector are struggling to maintain a sense of normality during this period of disruption and uncertainty. Our WellBox range of curated snacks and responsibly-sourced coffee are designed to do just that, enabling employers to stay connected to their teams while providing fuel and healthy sustenance snacks ordinarily available in the workplace. This will offer a sense of business-as-usual in showing them that they are valued, connected and appreciated.”
South Catering (South) was originally launched in 2006 and supplies companies with catering for business meetings and corporate events. With a reputation for utilising technology often off limits to small businesses, South grew to a team of 30 people, eventually beating several pure ecommerce companies to win Online Business of the Year, despite being heavily service based.
With much of their client base now working from home, South took the decision to offer this new service to supply their clients where ever they happened to be.
WellBox serves to deliver a workplace experience that staff will appreciate and love. All companies need to do is to set a budget and employees can quickly and easily directly sign-up to receive their snack boxes, directly to their home address in a contactless transaction, pre-paid by the employer.
Wellbox members can choose from three Work-from-Home sustenance offerings:
WellBox – Refuel
15 Items including a selection of bars, popcorn, snacks, dried fruit and trail mix
WellBox – Sustain
25 items including a selection of bars, popcorn, snacks, crackers, dried fruit, beef jerky, nuts and trail mix
WellBox – Recharge
12 items including a selection of bars, popcorn, snacks and trail mix and a 200g pack or responsibly sourced coffee
All boxes can be customised to accommodate gluten free, Halal, dairy free or vegan dietary requirements.
Purchasing any of the boxes in the range also means that one meal is donated to a vulnerable person in the local community via their charity partners, specifically working to feed the homeless at this difficult time. In addition, employers can give back to the community and ‘forward-pay’ boxes to be donated to their local food bank as part of their budget.
Wellbox is delighted to offer employers a fantastic way to reward their workforce whilst working from home, as well as helping the vulnerable in the local community most affected by Covid-19.
