For many workers, the company cafeteria offers all the appeal of airline or hospital food--assuming, of course, you're not left dining from a vending machine. However, even in this era of rigorous corporate penny-pinching and wolf-a-sandwich-at-your-desk deadlines, some worker-diners enjoy a different mealtime experience.
Think organic produce, locally sourced foods, thoughtful chefs. In fact, some companies now consider lunch a crucial component of employee recruitment, reward, and quality of life. Moreover, healthful food can help keep employees healthy, which not only boosts productivity but may help curb a company's health-care expenses.
