Today when you need to set up a team motivation exercise or just get everyone in the building socializing, then hiring a food catering company can help to break the ice. Sometimes workplaces can be so busy that people rarely get a chance to talk to each other. They may be in a different part of the building, in a different office or section of the office. A successful business is one that wants all of its employees to get to know each other and build relationships. Why not consider food catering?
Now without a question of a doubt food is almost everyone's most popular past time. I say 'almost' because there are still quite a few people that do not like to eat! I have never understood this simply because I have always been brought up to love food as has 99% of the world's population. Food crosses boundaries that most other things cannot. It brings cultures, religions, and people of different societies together. It can literally build a bridge so people that may not other connect get to meet up and enjoy a something that they both have a common interest in.
There is an absolutely brilliant article about food and culture by the Huffington Post. It's certainly worth reading after you have finished getting ideas on how to put a company feast on via a food catering service, which also mentions how to bring cultures together by providing popular food dishes.
The best time to hire a food catering company is in the summer. If you have a space in your building that is outside and hopefully you can time it around rare summer showers, then this is the perfect way to enhance the atmosphere in the office. Make it a monthly event during the summer on a Friday when spirits are high because the weekend is approaching or as mid-week lift on a Wednesday.
After the food has been consumed many employees that have never spoken will most certainly have broken the ice during the food catering event that you organized.
Hiring the right type of food catering service depends on the space you have available to you. Italian BBQs are always a hit because who in the world does not like Italian food? Try out companies like catering Milano that will be able to fit their catering services into the space you have available. They are professionals at their job and know exactly how best to serve food in the space they are provided.
What I like about catering services is that they arrive, set up, and perform well. There is no need to oversee their work unless you are in a secure building, then the security guard can oversee this. Aside from this, no time is taken from your own business working day. The only thing you need to do is answer a few questions about what it is you are looking for, choose the food types or just allow the catering company to use their experience and make the food selection on your behalf.
Finger dips, sauces, meats, vegetables, vegan style dishes, and so on can all be included. Do not start to get over controlling on how you want the food and set up to look because a reputable catering company will already know what to do because this is their field of speciality. The same as you would not want someone not experienced in your own job come and tell you how to do your job tasks better when that person giving the advice has very little or far less experience than yourself.
Obviously, you can give the food catering company an idea of what you are looking to achieve. Then let them do their job because in my own experience, without interference, catering companies do a much better job. As I said, have a look at servizio catering Milano for more information on the type of catering company you should be looking for. These people helped my company when we were in Italy and I will never forget the special job they did for us. This is why I use these people as an example of what to look for in a good catering service company.
