This article features David Lincoln, foodservice director at the Steelcase University Learning Center of Steelcase Corp. in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The café at the company may have as much to do with the mental health and well-being of employees as any other Steelcase service. That is in no small measure due to the efforts of Lincoln. Part manager, part concierge, Lincoln and his staff of two full-time cooks and one part-time "coffee person" have worked very hard to make an impact on everyone who comes through the learning center.
