Workdays can be long and hard no matter what job you do. In a corporate setting, rapidly approaching deadlines and mountains of work can lead to the days dragging on. One time many employees look forward to in their average workday is lunchtime. Lunch provides a small break from the day’s work, where employees can refuel and get themselves prepared for the second half of the workday. Catering lunch at your office can have several benefits for your employees. Here are some reasons why.
Bring People Together
Your company may have numerous departments of wonderful people who do not get to interact with each other on a regular basis. Having a healthy catered lunch at your office will give people an opportunity to talk to people they may not have spoken to previously. One of the most overlooked parts of working in a corporate setting is the relationships employees build with one another. While the work they are doing is very important, employees who feel a sense of community at their office will probably be happier.
Show You Care
Providing lunch for your office is a great way to show your employees you care. Employees work hard and giving them a healthy lunch will go a long way toward boosting their morale. It is easy to get down or to feel like you are just a small part of the company you work for. This is especially important during this part of the year because some employees may find themselves being especially sad due to the seasonal change.
For employees (and everyone really), some thought has to be put into their lunch for the day. Even if an employee makes their own lunch, they have to take the time to prepare it. If they are planning on ordering lunch, they will have to travel off-site, potentially get stuck in traffic, and have to worry about returning to work on time. Having a catered lunch for your office will take a lot of worries away from your employees and boost their productivity.
