Deliveroo expands tech services for hybrid working

Deliveroo for Business, the corporate arm of the delivery platform, is launching two new tech services for post-pandemic hybrid-working.

The company’s hybrid cloud canteen will enable businesses to offer their employees food on a pay-as-you-go basis, in the office and at home.

The new service allows employees to expense a meal while the company has full visibility on spend. Ordering rules, such as delivery addresses, hours in which food can be delivered and spending limits, can also be implemented by companies for staff on the app to be billed back to the business.

Companies can choose whether to subsidise these meals or offer an allowance at no cost to the employee.

Deliveroo has also introduced group orders for company and team meetings in the office, offsites or entertainment.

A business can share an order link and let colleagues add their own dishes to a shared basket.

The group order can be planned 24 hours in advance and items will be added to the cart with the corresponding name of the person ordering.

Up to 100 people can order via this link.

“Deliveroo for Business is proud to have played a role during the pandemic in boosting staff morale while employees worked virtually,” said Juan Diego Farah, global head of Deliveroo for Business. “With over 50 per cent of our clients moving to a hybrid working model, we are excited to continue supporting teams across the world as they continue to work in this new way.”

Farah added: “Since 2019 we have seen demand for Deliveroo for Business grow, with a 101% increase in new account signings globally. Hybrid perks are the future of the workplace; being able to access these at home or in the office will become increasingly important as we adapt to new ways of working.”
