Digi sets up digital canteen for staff as part of workplace digitisation efforts

Digi Telecommunications (Digi) has set up a digital canteen on its premises for employees, as part of the company's efforts to digitise its workplace and look after employees' wellbeing.

For this new initiative, Digi has team up with food delivery startup dahmakan, which has enabled a mobile kiosk comprising a tablet listing of an array of healthy food choices, including vegetarian and low carb meals.

These mobile kiosks have been set up in the common areas of Digi’s office, upon which a dedicated rider will deliver lunch or dinner orders at the allocated times, and employees will be notified via SMS to pick up their orders when it arrives.

The idea came about when Digi was exploring options to ensure that employees, particularly call centre staff who work in shifts, have access to healthy food without the hassle of leaving the office.

Some of the other employee welfare initiatives at Digi include in-house app D’Health that helps keep track of their workout goals, join fitness classes, and participate in health and wellness competitions that are run internally.

Digi has also built a D’PTW (Permit to Work) app to monitor external contractors and sub-contractors to ensure they comply with health, safety, and environment requirements during their work.
