Essentials in an Office Snack Drawer

  • screen shot 2016 06 24 at 5 29 59 pm

 

When the mid-afternoon munchies strike, stay away from the vending machine and reach for these healthier options instead. They can all live happily in your snack drawer for at least a day or two, no refrigeration necessary.

 

Protein

Protein is best for long-term hunger prevention, so you won't need another snack until dinner. They also don't cause blood sugar spikes and crashes like carbs. Try:

Protein bar (but check labels for sugar content)

Nuts and/or seeds

Jerky (now available in lots of options, thanks to the Paleo Diet movement)

String cheese

 

Carbs

Carbs deliver a fast fix of mental or physical energy. Whether you crave sweet or salt, there's a high carb snack for you:

Dried fruit (raisins, banana chips, etc.)

Fresh fruit/veggies that have long shelf-life (apples, pears, oranges, carrots)

Dark chocolate bar with at least 60% cacao (less fat, more antioxidants)

Rice cakes

Veggie chips

Pretzels (also low in calories)

 

Fiber

High fiber foods also keep you feeling full as well as your digestive system running smoothly.

Popcorn

Whole grain cereal packets

Whole grain crackers

Fiber cookies

 

Combos

Get the benefits of each type of snack and cancel out the negatives by eating them together. For example:

Trail mix (dried fruit for carbs, nuts for protein)

Veggies (carb) with cheese (protein)

Whole grain crackers (carb, fiber) with peanut butter (protein)

AI in HR: Facilitating Flexible Scheduling
In our new study "Artificial Intelligence for Recruiting Success," we discussed ways that new technology can save us time and effort while attracting a better pool of job candidates. In this article, we'll turn our attention to a tool that helps provide one of candidates' most desired job benefits, while requiring minimal time and effort on our part.   Work-life balance and the flexible schedule appear to be here to stay. Surveys show that 77% of Millennials1 and 51% of Generation Z2 prefer flexible working hours. In fact, some experts predict that the traditional 9-to-5 job will be pretty much dead by 20303.   The good news for businesses is that giving employees flexibility does increase morale, overall work hours and productivity;4 and if most employees telecommute, it reduces the need for expensive corporate office space.
