Impetus Infotech, a notable IT organization for its employee-oriented initiatives has introduced yet another program adding to its prestige. The company has become first of its kind among companies in the whole of Central and North India to serve organic food to its employees across its offices.
The organization is reputed for being attentive towards employee benefits and welfare. It is successful to provide a healthy work environment to employees for their holistic growth. Employee welfare has been the prime focus of the company since its inception. The recent initiative has placed the IT organization among the few companies in India that serves organic meals to their employees.
Impetus provides many facilities such as gymnasiums, yoga classes, regular eye checkups and regular health checkups. Serving organicmeals is a step forward to make its employees healthier. Organic food offers many health benefits and reduces risk of premature ageing and heart diseases as they have less exposure to pesticide and have high nutritional quality.

He adds that the organization is well aware of the harmful effects of chemicals and pesticides used in food, and is making an effort to protect its employees from the health hazards. “We source organic vegetables and fruits from the local farmers and suppliers to ensure maximum usage of organic and natural ingredients in preparing the meals,” says Agrawal.
