Free meals bring employees to the table

Employees of Chick-fil-A headquarters in Atlanta don’t nosh on the organization’s famous breaded chicken breast sandwiches at lunchtime. They don’t “brown-bag” it either. To encourage employee bonding, the organization treats employees each day to entrées, such as pork loin with asparagus and crusted chicken breast with cauliflower.
    The company employs a full kitchen staff and head chef in its cafeteria, where employees often hold meetings over the free meal.
    Employees are encouraged to invite their clients for lunch at the cafeteria, says Brenda Green, senior public relations coordinator.
    The menu complements the company’s wellness program, which includes annual flu shots and wellness assessments. Employees can exercise or take free fitness classes at the on-site, state-of-the-art gym. Employee morale is high, says Green, who notes the Atlanta office has a 97% retention rate.
