Initially implemented in the tech sector but later embraced by other sectors, Agile methods have proven to be attractive for their flexibility, adaptability, and responsiveness. In a world of accelerated change, individuals in finance, consumer products, and commercial industries are the emerging champions of this new way of working.

Food Influencers and Foodservice Strategies

In our previous installment, we focused on a specific topic, food and its link to social trends and wellbeing in the workplace. In this post, we will examine how food “influencers,” defined as factors that affect foodservice strategies, can encourage healthy eating practices at work. By considering these factors early in the design process, it is possible to integrate the various food strategies into project solutions. The objective is to create both an appealing workplace and an environment that guides employees toward healthier choices.

As a result, it is easy to get caught up with the latest products and trends regardless of their effectiveness. We recently synthesized some of the latest and most relevant findings from the myriad of available articles, reports, and publications to help clear up the confusion for both clients and designers alike. To help differentiate between the hype and the facts, we briefly summarize below what we learned.
