The hybrid office is here. Schedules are more flexible, and daily attendance is not mandatory, so how do you motivate people to actually come into the office? In a word, food.
93% of leaders we surveyed said more employees show up to the office on days when food is provided.
People miss the bonding time and free-form conversations that take place eating lunch together. Managers also see the value of lunch: 65% of survey respondents in manager level or higher roles agree that socialization during lunch breaks is critical to team building.
Our report, “The Role of Lunch in the Hybrid Office,” takes a deeper look at how employees and managers think about lunch in the new hybrid setting, and why companies should leverage food as their most powerful tool for motivating in-person attendance in the hybrid office environment.
As many organizations settle into a long-term hybrid model — with more complicated employee rotation schedules and varying numbers of people on site each day — it will be important to find opportunities to bring the team together. Lunch has the power to do just that.
