Meeting the needs of your teams outside the 9-to-5

November 17, 2022 / Australia

The line between work and home has blurred, and the paradigm of the traditional workday has changed.

Companies continue to search for ways to meet the needs of their teams, from late-night rides to meals at all hours. Gone are the days of a one-size-fits-all model, especially with benefits and perks. Below, learn how organisations are getting creative when it comes to supporting their key people.

Eating outside the 9-to-5

Many jobs require nontraditional hours, but employees who work on different schedules still need to eat. Uber for Business helps companies like the global investment firm Citadel provide a range of meal options to their employees. In addition to in-office lunch, teams at some locations can also order early-morning breakfast. For those who stay late, a dinner option will be rolling out soon.

Online mental health platform BetterHelp gives its people a monthly stipend that they can use to order meals wherever they are. The ability to get food at different times has allowed employees to completely customise their days, from busy parents who need to take care of dinner to late-night workers who want to schedule meals ahead of time. Director of Operations and People Experience Sahar Naim says, “Our founder’s philosophy is to make our lives as efficient as possible and provide perks to map to that objective.”

Go above and beyond for your teams

In addition to offering meal delivery for nontraditional times and places, companies use vouchers or gift cards for Uber Eats to give employees a little something extra. Sponsored meals  are a way to say thank you, provide a morale boost, or just help switch up the routine. Let your people treat themselves to their favourite early-morning coffee, give the hard-working cook of the family a night off, or just finally try that new spot on the corner.

Encanta does this by including Uber vouchers as a point of difference when running virtual events. As the Encanta team tossed up how to create more engaging virtual and hybrid events, it looked to provide new and unique experiences, and Riolo and colleagues realised Uber Eats Vouchers offered a real – and delicious – way to serve up benefits for delegates.

Always-on employee transportation

Many companies give their employees transportation benefits beyond average working hours, too. Vouchers or gift cards can be used for rides with Uber, providing a convenient way for employees to get to or from work anytime. This is especially helpful if they don’t have or choose not to use a personal vehicle, are going to an area with limited parking, or need an alternative to public transportation.

Continued support, anytime

From late-night workers to employees balancing caregiving duties, your people are the backbone of your organisation.
