Lunch & Learns are much more than a perk or a free lunch to look forward to. They’re an important statement about the values you share as an organization and the environment you’re trying to cultivate. Your Lunch & Learns should focus on the most important aspects of your company: your people.
Why have Lunch & Learns?
They help with transparency and understanding. This is helpful for companies of all different sizes. Lunch & Learns can serve as a platform for teams to get on the same page and work toward shared goals, providing a new appreciation for each employee and how they fit.
They build community. Most of us spend a lot of time at work. It should be a place that is supportive and fosters caring relationships. Lunch & Learns give employees from different areas the opportunity to engage together around a topic and get to know people in ways they might not during the regular workday.
They foster learning and growth. You never know what can happen when you bounce ideas around with people you don’t normally work with. Lunch & Learns create an environment where people are encouraged to learn and grow their technical or personal skills.
