The Technology, Dotcom, Hedge Funds and Private Equity organisations are well renowned for providing quite “luxury” meals for their staffs. Google is quite famous for this, however, there was a recent attempt by the State of California to tax this perceived “benefit”…yes, the State seems to be on the cusp of a financial melt down, so any source of tax revenue will do.
Organisations that offer this “benefit” would have noticed a positive benefit to doing this, otherwise, why would they continue offering it? The following authors, Stanley A. Deetz & Sarah J. Tracy & Jennifer Lyn Simpson in Leading Organizations Through Transition: Communication and Cultural Change asserted that “managing the hearts, minds, and souls of employees is a key element of building a successful business today”.
The poll below is an attempt to gauge interest and explore if there is a perceived correlation before commissioning further work.
