Eating with colleagues - even if only occasionally - has its benefits. Communal eating helps teams bond, helps them network, and gives a chance to discuss work issues in an informal setting.
In a new infographic, Adzuna has compiled a five-step HR guide to better office lunches. (But try not to scroll through this at your desk on your lunch break).
The infographic contains handy nuggets of work-lunch wisdom, such as:
- The average keyboard harbours more bacteria than a toilet seat - all the more reason not to munch and email at the same time.
- Having up to 7 portions of fruit and vegetables daily will make you happier, more engaged and more creative.
- Avoiding vending machine snacks or treats brought in by colleagues can be difficult. Keep yourself feeling full by munching on wholemeal crackers or veggie sticks.
