Catered Lunches?

This week we asked:

Would you be willing to forego an independent lunch hour if your company provided lunch but required you to stay in and eat with your colleagues at an appointed time? [#QOW]

70% of you answered YES!

The appeal for a working lunch was overwhelming! Perhaps more companies should consider providing lunch for its employees to see productivity go up during the work day. Adding the extra time could greatly improve the workflow with less creativity gaps.

Does your company provide lunch? Do you feel it is effective? Let us know!

Tips For First Day Success

Study and review.

Consider the on-boarding period of a new job an extension of the interview. The same amount of study and preparation that helped land you the role will also help make the transition into it easier. Reread your interview notes and any materials you collected during the interview process. Do some web research on current events or news about your new company and industry. Your up-to-date knowledge and recall of key discussion points from earlier meetings will reassure those that hired you that they’ve made the right choice.
