Lunch comes to the crunch

Facilities at Credit Suisse’s new building at Canary Wharf are so advanced that employees no longer have to leave it under any circumstances.

In addition to the gym and swimming pool, there is also a mini-plaza floor, where employees use their gift cards, which they top up with cash, to pay for their lunches as the shops do not take cash.

However, head of multi-manager Aidan Kearney says: “One day, these card machines broke and the cue of people from across the building got so big they had to let everyone through to get their items for free. The problem was everyone came back to stock up on food.”
