Posted by Shelby Scholze on 2020-05-26 19:27:46

The ways we live, work and play have all changed. Offices, schools, restaurants, malls and event venues are all having to adjust the way they operate in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. In an office space, new processes and procedures are in place to protect the employees that occupy these spaces. The way employee dining spaces are operated and managed will have to undergo a variety of changes.

4 tips for working from home

Posted by Shelby Scholze on 2020-04-13 19:20:11

You may be sharing an office space with a spouse, roommate or children. On the other hand, it could be that you are an introvert who thrives in this environment. For others, this lifestyle shift can be challenging, and it can be hard to adjust psychologically.

Work-life balance has been an area of focus for many organizations. Companies understand that to attract and retain top-tier talent, they must adapt to what the workforce wants and values. In many cases, employees want to feel appreciated while knowing that employers understand the importance of life outside the workplace.

Humans have a natural penchant for salt, fat, and sugar, as these types of foods have been shown to light up reward centers in our brain. No wonder why it’s so difficult to turn down free pizza in the breakroom or donuts at an A.M. meeting!

Five basic tastes influence the vast variety of flavors in our food: sweet, salty, bitter, sour, and umami, or savory. Despite our biological taste temptations, it is possible to enjoy all tastes by savoring the inherent flavor in nutrient-dense foods!
