Not all team bonding is done around a conference table. Big Switch Networks created its Just Lunch initiative to encourage employees to bond and build community in a different setting than the office. While this initiative can be a bit difficult to organize depending on the size of your team, it’s a great way to encourage employees to engage with colleagues or management that they typically wouldn’t have the opportunity to interface with. This type of interaction helps to increase productivity and reduce stress. And beyond that, everyone appreciates a delicious meal!
