Nourished: The importance of sharing meals together at work!

Creating the right corporate culture is essential for shaping a business’ identity and most importantly, nurtures and engages your workforce.


How can food help to improve your company culture?


At the heart of culture is food - both at home and in a professional environment - and it is a powerful tool in connecting people. During the pandemic, employees felt that one of the key benefits of working from home was the ability to eat more healthily as they had time to prepare fresh and tasty dishes during their lunch hour.


Repositioning food as the centrepiece to create shared moments of bonding will boost both morale and productivity in your workplace as employees will be taking active steps to help reset their minds and energy.



There are countless benefits of offering your employees a common place to eat and congregate together during the day. And with that being said, it is vital to create an environment where people can get away from their desks and enjoy their lunch breaks.


Benefits of offering your teams a place to gather and share their meals together in the workplace.


Unity

The act of physically sharing a table and eating with others creates a sense of community amongst your team while also creating a collaborative environment. It can almost be seen as a sign of a healthy workplace. The act of sharing a table and talking with your team while nourishing yourself creates a special and unique bond between both parties.


Socialisation

Encouraging your team to get away from their desks and socialise with other employees will provide them with a much-needed break that can fight fatigue and burnout. Employees need rest and cannot just continue working nonstop without any breaks, so these lunch breaks can actually help spark inspiration and improve workflow.


Builds a cohesive culture

Not only will you witness teams communicating cross functionally, but you will feel a tighter bond overall across your company. You can expect to see a new, stronger company culture emerge from something as easy as providing the opportunity for people to eat alongside each other and develop stronger bonds.


Current dining trends include street food trucks, in-house cookery schools, organic and seasonal ingredients, global cuisine, fully stocked fridges and barista-made coffee. According to the Allegra Health and Wellness Summit, 27 percent of employees say access to healthy food and drink is the number-one way their workplace could support them.The better the offering, the stronger the company culture and your staff retention will be.


Our team would love to hear from you and discuss dining options for you and your team. Please contact our team info@ccsl.ie for more information.
