This book will help you choose the electronic meal voucher solution that’s right for your company and all your employees. It helps you ask the right questions, and provides you with all the tools you’ll need to properly and fully evaluate the meal voucher solutions that are available in the market today.

Companies have found that providing their employees with meal vouchers that can be used during a working day to buy meals has improved productivity. In fact, the International Labour Organisation recognises meal voucher programmes as being important to an employee’s health and well-being. Frequently used by employees at office cafeterias to have lunches (often subsidised), meal vouchers also show potential to encourage better food habits and choices in people. It is also a popular tax saving tool offered by most Indian companies.

If you’re a novice, you’ll be able to get a foundational-level understanding of meal voucher regulations, and how they impact your organisation. For the experienced, this book will provide a deeper understanding of the bigger questions you need to ask, and even help you while making company policy decisions in this regard.
