Why Should Your Company Provide Corporate Cafeteria Services?

There are several reasons why your organization should provide a high-quality corporate cafeteria service from a food management company. This service makes it easier for your employees to complete the main meal break, whether lunch, dinner or breakfast. A healthy and attractive meal re-energizes your employees, helping them to complete their day’s work full of energy and enthusiasm. Is It a Perk or A Requirement? Employees may choose which company they work for by assessing a wide range of criteria. One of those choices may revolve around whether you include corporate cafeteria services within your property, showing that you care about your employees more than other companies. By outsourcing to a food management company, what you may regard as a potential perk for your employees, may be a requirement. Otherwise, you may lose employees to your competitors. Where your organization is considering the type of investment required to ask a food management company to take over and manage your corporate cafeteria service, communication with your employees is essential. Whether you sell the idea to your employees as a perk or a requirement, the installation of a corporate cafeteria, without any of the headaches, can only benefit your organization. This is a good opportunity for employees to continue to build bonds across short or longer breaks. It is also a great chance for employees to meet colleagues from other departments that they would rarely encounter during their standard working day. Your final choice of cafeteria menu will help decide if you are going through the motions or providing a good opportunity for employees to consider how they can improve their health and wellness and that working within your organization is an excellent choice for themselves and their family. The justification for providing health and wellness within your work zones will show with improved performance and an increased bottom line profit...

How do Electrical Transformers Work?

When many people think of transformers, they see those high voltage units feeding power to homes and business or large enclosed areas with strange buzzing noises. However, there are many electrical transformers working hard behind the scenes inside panels and electrical equipment. How do these things work? Let’s take a closer look and see. Magnetic Energy and Inductance When you pass electricity through a wire, it produces an electromagnetic field. If you coil the wire, the magnetic field intensifies. On the other hand, when a magnetic field creates an electric current, this is inductance. Transformer Theory Imagine two coils of wire and both coils share an iron core. The primary coil receives AC electricity from a power source, and this creates magnetic energy which causes current to flow through the secondary coil of wire. This is important because electrical transformers have the power to change voltage. Suppose the primary coil receives 120 volts AC and the wire wraps around the coil 100 times (100 ampere-turns). The secondary coil has 50 ampere-turns of wire. Current enters the primary side of the transformer at 120 volts and leaves the secondary side at 60 volts. Voltage change is in direct proportion to the ampere-turn differences between the coils. Step Up and Step Down When the primary coil has more wire than the secondary coil, you have a step-down transformer. Reverse the situation, and you get a step-up transformer. Power going to your house enters a transformer at about 14,000 volts and steps down to 120 volts per conductor. This is an example of a step-down transformer. Step-up electrical transformers raise the voltage. Fluorescent lighting needs high voltages to ignite the gas inside of fluorescent tubes. They use step-up electrical transformers called ballasts. Many products today use transformers to change voltages, including microwave ovens and computers. Be the first to like. Like...

Helpful Tips for Decorating Your Office Space

For many people, their office is their home away from home. It is the location where you are fighting for the market share, where you pursue new business opportunities and even realize your dreams.

Consider the Colors When decorating your office space, regardless of the style or décor you want to use, the first consideration is color. For more conservative businesses, such as legal or banking services, neutral tones are best. However, graphic designers and photographers may enjoy more vibrant colors that encourage creativity. The good news is, modern office furniture can complement virtually any color palette. Consider the Cost of New Furniture If your business has a limited budget regarding your office furniture you need to choose your pieces wisely. The good news is, modern office furniture is offered at virtually all price points. This means you can easily find something that looks great for the space that is also affordable.

Make A Positive Difference With Water Saving Toilets

As the world’s population increases, learning how to conserve our natural resources and reduce our strain on them is a more important and pressing issue than ever before. Out of all our natural resources, water is the one that especially needs to be kept in good supply. Nothing can replace this vital substance, which is a source of life. While many parts of the world experience droughts that deprive them of having sufficient water, in other areas, millions of gallons are wasted by being flushed down toilets. Fortunately, water saving toilets are becoming more widespread. Installing these toilets in your restrooms will be a choice you won’t regret. Why Use Water Saving Toilets? As the world’s population is growing, the amount of waste that is going into the sewers is also growing. The sewers can only hold so much, so reducing the amount of water that is run down the drains has become a more pressing issue. With so many people flushing the toilets, running the sink and taking showers every day, restrooms have the biggest strain on the world’s drinking water supply and the sewer lines. However, with water saving toilets, the amount of water that is wasted is reduced exponentially. Simply by using a small amount of water for flushing, these toilets make a great difference. Who Can Benefit From Using Water Saving Toilets? Water saving toilets are becoming more popular in areas that see a lot of traffic in the restrooms, such as airports, military bases, theme parks, schools and more. It costs very little money to install and maintain water saving toilets. They are easier to keep clean, and there is less chance of having to deal with vandalism and unexpected messes. In addition, you don’t have to pay winterization costs. Be the first to like. Like...
