Sodexo, employee motivation & benefits services, announced its partnership with the Bengaluru-based startup, Goodbox. Employees who use Sodexo Meal Cards can now enjoy the ease of ordering food at workplaces with the Goodbox App. Sodexo has over 11,000 clients and 3 million+ daily consumers that use the 100% tax-compliant meal benefit solution across 1,500 cities in India.
In the daily rush, people often forget to have a proper meal before leaving for work. At the start of the day, when employees are under pressure to prepare the job list of the day, managing hunger pangs may lead to a drop in productivity. Employees can now link the Sodexo Meal card with the Goodbox app and order or pre-book meals at a time of their choice within their office cafeterias. Through this partnership, Sodexo is ensuring that employees have a smooth food ordering experience. This will save them a lot of time as well and ensure that they eat their meals of choice regularly, while saving taxes.
On this occasion, Abey Zachariah, CEO, Goodbox, said, “Goodbox is very happy to announce its tie-up with Sodexo. Sodexo is a global player who is at the forefront of delivering employee benefits, and a part of that is making it easy for them to use meal cards at authorized F&B outlets and corporate cafeterias. We are happy to partner with Sodexo on this journey and deliver ease of online ordering for millions of corporate employees with their Sodexo Meal card.”
Stephane Michelin, CEO Sodexo Benefits & Rewards Services India, said, “Being the leader in employee benefits, we are always on a lookout for more and more opportunities to deliver a better quality of life to our consumers in the form of ease, network, and better meal experiences. We understand the value of an engaged and motivated workforce and the role of meals in boosting their productivity and overall performance. Our partnership with Goodbox App is in the direction to bring ease to food ordering services in India and make meal accessible to all the employees.”
