    No proper food facilities being provided to the employees in our company

    I am working in a private company. Since I joined this company 1 year ago, I have noticed that there is no proper food facilities for the employees here. There is no good eating joint nearby and our own canteen keeps on making the same dishes each day. Many employees have complained regarding this but without any success. What can be done in such a situation?

    I would suggest that all employees should approach the Admin Manager of the Company
    Or you should approach the manager who looks after the canteen and other staff welfare
    You should tell them that facilities and different food items should be made available at the canteen
    There should be a rotational menu for each week
    Only if you do this than only some changes can be made at the canteen in your office

    Dear friend,

    In this situation, You can contact your HR Manager and discuss with him the conditions employees are facing.

    In case you know a good caterer, just get the tender from them and let you HR and management decide if that suites them.

    You can ask for a feedback or complaint box in the canteen in which the employees can put up their problems regarding food and ask your HR to work on them one by one. HR is appointed to deal with the problems faced by the Human resource of the company. In case he fails to do so, you can escalate the situation to their head.

    Thanks

    Dear Aspirant,

    Yes,there should be a provision to have different food items in canteen so that the employee could choose & use it as per choice.Taking same dishes makes the employees boring.So there must be some arrangement for the same.In order to get change in arrangement,you should have meeting with all the employees & should get ready a joint representation duly signed by all.Then meet the head of the management,HR,managing Director,General manager with menu & report the matter & hand over the representation with menu.You should also give an ultimatum for pen down strike,if no arrangement is made since a particular date.See the level of consent among yourselves & then move.If you have unity among yourselves,you can get change in menu other wise you should think of your own arrangement.Need not be dependent upon the office canteen.You can get the different items either from home or have tiffin box & bring it from another hotel or use any good hotel which is near by your company.

    So see the situation & proceed.

    Thanks & good luck.

    No proper food facilities being provided to the employees in your Company. You have joined to the company since 1 years ago but the dishes are prepared at the launch time is same, there is no change you like to get better dishes at the launch period from the canteen.

    To get better dishes from the canteen at the launch our you are think deeply, what you can do for the purpose, you are to prepare agenda regarding:-

    1. To introduce better food within the same price you are to call a meeting with management/staff/canteen head.

    2.Next you discuss how you can improve the situation .

    3.If the canteen is subsidized by the company then you are to write suggestions to change the procedure, to facilitate more services on behalf of the canteen.

    4.Then without craeating problem the situation can be averted.

    5.You suggest your favourite food dishes serially, then compute the costs, I think it will remain almost same.

    6.Next with the consent of your company boss you write it to the management lebel.

    7.This is a progessive good suggestion, higher authority will not give any restrictions as the main thing is that the suggestion is notinvolved with exta cost.

    8.Issue is within the cost you want a better service from the canteen regarding food at the launch time.

    Thank You,

    Hi,
    As you mention that many employees have complained regarding this but without any success. This also indicates that your HR management team is not doing there job responsibilities. As per my view your HR also play very important role in this. So in this case you just need a complete employees support who are eating food in canteen. After all employees are agree, just write a e-mail and share your problem. Keep your "Director/Head Operation" in to and also keep your HR in CC.
    So from above email you management will also get a notice that HR not doing his/her duty in proper manner and i am pretty sure that you will get good and healthy good in future.
    Thanks

    Hello Friend,

    Well, you are very fortuntae in the sense that you have a working canteen at your office. Many company don't have that facility. Generally, you find all basic food item on canteen lke tea, snaks etc and if you want variety in canteen menu then you have to make an application to the higher management requesting them to kindly add other's menu as well so that you can eat at canteen whenever you like. If needed you have to talk to each employee and submit a joint petition to the management. Unity is strength and management has to consider your proposal in a serious way. Employees well being is very important in any organization so I do hope they will take necessary acton.

    Bye,

    We do lot of work for making our making our stomach free from hunger.If the food provided by the company is not good then it is the big drawback for the company.so,a very serious action should be taken the employees.All the employees should talk about the issue and then you have to give a complaint about the food facilities to the higher official of the company.if the company authorities did not take any action about this.then all the employees should raise their there voice against the food facilities then the authorities will take necessary steps to give good food to the employees.
    all the best
    thank you

    Food is the neccessity of life and if that is not good then how a human being survive in this competetive world because if you are working in any of the company then you are entitled to get the fooding and lodging according to the rule.
    If they are not giving you the same then you need to go to the HR or the higher authorities for the same because its your right to raise the question against any of the mishappening with you in the organisation.
    As it is the matter of food then you should write a letter to the owner of the company if the boss and HR is not listening for the same.
    After that if they are not taking the action then you have the final option to quit the company because these type of companies will never understand the level of complexities in the working place where food is the main issue.
    So you need to give interview to the bigger organisation where the fooding facilities is the best.

    Re: No proper food facilities being provided to the employees in our company

    Hi Dear,

    This is a very common problem today. In fact, it's not at all hygienic to eat from anywhere and everywhere, rather you must try to manage food on your own so that you could get good and healthy food.

    Either you should try taking food from home or look for some tiffin options in the office which of course offers good and healthy services.

    However, if these two options do not work for you, then talk to other employees who are facing similar food issues and in a group approach the administrative department of your company and collectively make a complain against the food vendor. If you go alone to admin team, it would not create an impact on them but if you walk up to them collectively then they would definitely be forced to take an action against the food vendor.

    Thanks.

    Re: No proper food facilities being provided to the employees in our company

    You should let this thing know by the higher authorities of the company because if they want better work from the side of the employees then they will have to provide good facilities to all including food everyday and that should be fresh, better and green all time and if the canteen controller will give them same dishes and stale food then company will not get better performance from employees and that will cause a big loss because employees are the only way to get success in company so make them happy as much as possible and give more facilities

    You all employees should write a letter to the higher authorities of the company and before that you may take this issue in front of the manager and if manager does not take any interest then sign at that letter and go to the owner and mention your query that no employee is there who is getting proper food facilities in the canteen and due to that we are worried and feeling unenthusiastic while working because the same food making us sick and tired and we are unable to concentrate more over the work so please sir understand either provide proper food facilities or let us take the lunch from our houses and give us money that we pay for the canteen facility then they will understand your situation and instantly call to the canteen controller and manager of your branch and owner will give you proper satisfaction and you will not get the same problem again

    You may also use another way that is if you see the same food in the canteen again at the next day that was cooked before 1 day then you should not take that because that is not giving you energy that is making you ill at this time and you all employees should be on strike of hunger and go to the management that we would not work until we get proper food facilities then manager will take right action very soon

    All the best
