re: An onsite gym or gym membership? We get a contribution towards a gym, but it's not a gym anyone wants to use so I don't think it gets a lot of take...
 

healthy snacks and lunches?
We have a vending machine that only dispenses "healthy" snacks, but by that I mean things that are fad-healthy, like raw cacao or "organic" chocolate.

They tried that with us, until signs were put up on the vending machine saying that engineers run on Dew and Monster :P The vender switched to half and half and likely gets much more money from us now.

 

We have free fizzy drinks/soda in a vending machine. The facilities team revealed how many cans we go through in a year. It was pretty scary but if it keeps people going it’s a worthwhile perk

We have a similar thing going on where we work. I think it might be a short-term gain but for a long-term pain. I've told myself that I will stop drinking carbonated drinks at work because of the potential long-term health issues (weight gain, diabetes, etc.).

Every time I try to cut out pop, I never figure out how to replace the calories (at least some of them) with not-pop, so I end up ravenous and give up within a week. It's like my body is too trained after 20 odd years of Mountain Dew and Cherry Coke.
