How to Foster Workplace Productivity With Food & Fitness

The idea that happier employees are more productive employees is by no means new, but one employer is taking his devotion to keeping his team happy, healthy and productive to new levels of cushyness. Jason Calacanis, CEO of Mahalo , the web’s largest human-powered search engine, has implemented some very effective perks  for his employees that go way beyond vacation days and a holiday party. His lucky employees get hand-delivered fruit plates and bowls of oatmeal every morning, as well as having access to a parking lot fit club for mid-day workouts. We’re green with envy here at Inhabitat – we want an office chef! Read on to see how Calacanis promotes worker productivity and loyalty  (their turnover was zero in the last six months and one or two in the last year) and has people lining up at the door to work for him despite lower starting salaries than competing companies.
