CHICAGO -- The National Automatic Merchandising Association debuted its new research e-guide on pantry services -- Leveraging Pantry Services to Retain Talent.  Funded by the NAMA Foundation, the new resource walks operators through the ways to sell clients on pantry services, highlighting challenges to consider and providing tips on maintaining a pantry.
With unemployment at an all-time low, many employers are looking at new ways to recruit and retain talent. One of the ways companies are expanding their benefits is through employer-sponsored pantry services, NAMA emphasized.
"Secondary research shows that 48% of survey respondents said they would weigh the availability of free food at work into their decision to accept a new job," said Terri Bruce, director of the NAMA Foundation.  "Providing pantry services to employees helps create a more desirable and efficient work environment and helps retain high-performing talent. The Foundation is providing this Pantry Services e-guide as a value-add to operators looking to enter this new emerging market and advance their business," she concluded."
