Employee Care Platform Embraces the Future of Work with New Workplace Safety Offerings, Snacks + Essentials Box, and Indefinite Remote Work Policy of its Own
LOS ANGELES, CA — June 3, 2020 — SnackNation, the country’s leading provider of better-for-you snacks, coffee, and essential items for the office and home, today unveiled a specially curated product line designed to foster a feeling of safety and connection among employees, so they can do their best work, no matter where work happens. Considering the distinct perspective of work-from-home, in-office, and combination employees, the new line debuts a catalog of standalone safety products, including masks and hand sanitizers, and the Snacks + Essentials Box, a specially configured mix containing nutritious bites and employee safety essentials.
Additionally, the company announced its LA-area staff will be working remotely for the foreseeable future, with the closure of its Playa Vista, CA office. The one-time “in-office snack delivery” brand has expanded its product line and is leading the progressive approach to the workplace to fully embed its people in the future of work, so they can better empathize with the forward-looking employers they serve.
“We can’t do our best work unless we feel safe and connected to our teams, whether in the office or at home. This long period of quarantine and social distancing has accelerated the remote work trend, and taught us just how important these connections with our coworkers are in feeling fulfilled, productive, and cared for,” said Sean Kelly, Co-Founder and CEO of SnackNation. “We polled our membership, and 67% of them plan to bring less than half their staff back to an office full time. Plus, an overwhelming majority are in need of safety essentials like masks and hand sanitizer for workplace health risk mitigation. With the concept of workplace fluidity, versatility will be critical to the future of how we work and support companies and their teams across the globe. With a great deal of empathy and care, we thought about how we could empower our team to facilitate employee connection no matter where they work. We have expanded and created our product line to suit.”
