One of the main tasks of an HR department is the shaping of work culture. Internal communication can have a big impact and improve the flow of information. Employer branding shapes the image of the company to future and current employees. Lunchmates wants to help you with these tasks.
„Some of the best decisions and insights come from hallway and cafeteria discussions, meeting new people, and impromptu team meetings.” (Marissa Mayer, Yahoo!)
Casual lunch meetings, as by Lunchmates, strengthen the network within the company and sets the stage for joint projects. They facilitate the communication between departments. The meetings increase collaborations across units and the new connections can yield innovation.
Thus, Lunchmates supports you in creating a learning organisation.
You can also use Luchmates to foster the networking of certain groups within your organisation. So you can bring your company's high potentials into a informal exchange early on.
Your colleagues get to know other areas and functions of the company. They get familiar with their goals and get a better picture of the whole organisation. This contributes to a faster informal flow of information. Studies show increased sympathy among colleagues after casual conversations. The trust that builds up decreases friction in everyday's work. If both participate Lunchmates enables contact between management and employees. Eventually, the inclusion of employees increases satisfaction and commitment to the company.
Lunchmates is simple. You can use it intuitively and manage easily. After you set up a community your colleagues can sign up for themselves and organise their attendance. Every lunch group organizes their own lunch.

Next, you invite your colleagues by sending them the link to the community (www.lunchmates.org/communities/YOUR_COMMUNITY) and publish an article in your intranet. The first Lunchdate in your company is ready to start. (If you do not want to participate yourself you can set your status to suspend.
