Cheap eats help 1-800-Contacts recruit through employee referrals

Employees of 1-800-Contacts in Salt Lake City can feast on prime rib with Yukon Gold potatoes and a vegetable for just $2.50 in the company restaurant, a treat from their employer.

The firm’s 600 area employees eat cheap because the firm subsidizes about 80 percent of the food costs to the tune of $1.2 million a year, according to Max Neves, VP of HR for the contact-lens retailer.

Employees can order meals from the six-year-old 20/20 Grille on their computers, and pay their part of the tab via payroll deduction. Employees can eat at work or take the meals home. Four times a month, they can use company-paid vouchers to treat friends and family to lunch.

Low-cost, easy-to-grab food helps with recruiting, notes Neves. The firm finds about 80 percent of its new hires through employee referrals.
