Survey Reveals That Free Snacks Are The Key To Happiness At Work

Sept. 16, 2015

According to a new survey by grocery-delivery service Peapod, companies that offer free snacks in the workplace have happier employees compared to those who do not, USA Today reports. The survey revealed that 67 percent of employees who are given free snacks and food as a workplace perk are “extremely” or “very” happy with their current job. The number of employees who said they are given free snacks at work is just 16 percent, however. Additionally, 48 percent of respondents said they would weigh company perks, including the availability of snacks, in their decision when looking for a new job.
