Meeting Catering In London
The most important meal of the day is frequently said to be breakfast. This holds true in the business sector for a host of factors, not just nutrition.
For any size group, from intimate team or client meetings to sizable corporate events, professional breakfast catering services like Pearl Lemon Catering offer an effective – and delicious-way to offer a great corporate breakfast meeting.
By bringing employees together in a casual setting through corporate catering for breakfast meetings, businesses can foster teamwork and raise morale. And increasingly, breakfast meetings are replacing lunch or dinner meetings as the best way to both entertain clients and get down to some serious business.
The Big Benefits of Corporate Breakfast Meetings
The biggest reason that Pearl Lemon Catering offers extensive corporate breakfast catering services is that our clients love them, and more and more of them are opting to move meetings and event up their day’s agenda, making ‘breakfast the new lunch.’ And there are some very good reasons for doing so.
Breakfast Meeting Attendees are More Focused
When drink and the commotion of lunch service are absent from the meeting, people tend to be more focused on the tasks at hand and the goals that must be achieved. Employees are more likely to be distracted during dinner or happy hour meetings since they are preoccupied with enjoying themselves and their drinks rather than giving the meeting their full attention.
Everyone can be more productive if a meeting is over before nine in the morning. Everyone can move ahead on their tasks even before the lunch bell rings because the discussions are over and the jobs have been assigned to specific people. A breakfast meeting allows people to think more clearly because they are not distracted by issues that might come up later in the day.
But it’s not just that. People in general are, research has shown, often more productive and energetic in the morning in general. There has been a rise in recent years in the trend for rising earlier in general, and this has coincided with the increase in the popularity of corporate breakfast meetings.
People are More Likely to Attend Breakfast Meetings
If you schedule a lunch meeting, there is a good chance that events of the morning will lead to some attendees unintentionally being unable to attend. A lot can happen in the business world between 9am and 1pm, in any niche, and often a last minute deadline that has yet to be met, a crisis that needs to be addressed or suddenly conflicting appointments get in the way of lunch meetings actually taking place.
If you hold a breakfast meeting first thing in the morning, you can better count on people’s availability and know that you have their full attention before the day’s events begin. And if that meeting offers breakfast meeting corporate catering from Pearl Lemon Catering, people are even more likely to attend. After all, who wants to miss out on starting their day with a great free breakfast?
Breakfast Meetings Make for a Business Friendlier Atmosphere
You can take advantage of the fact that breakfast is typically a more relaxed meal with corporate breakfast catering. An informal meal will help put potential clients or business partners at ease and promote deeper conversation if you’re meeting with them. In a business meeting with your team, you can encourage open communication about new projects and raise workplace morale.
Corporate Breakfast Meetings Might Better Suit Your Budget
A great corporate breakfast catering menu is often one of the more economical options you can choose, so a catered breakfast meeting can be a great way for a smaller business to offer some big business perks to employees, and seriously impress clients and prospects, without breaking the bank.
When you choose Pearl Lemon Catering to cater your corporate breakfast meetings, we will never skimp on menu selection, food and beverage quality or service, no matter what your budget is, and we make it a priority to ensure that every penny spent offers great ROI.
Daily Office Breakfast Catering From Pearl Lemon Catering
As a full service caterer, Pearl Lemon Catering offers a wide range of options, including daily breakfast catering.
One of the ways that some of the world’s biggest companies, including Google, Apple and Microsoft, woo the best and brightest of the talent they need, and retain that talent, is by offering them onsite catering.
While your business might not have the same budgets as those big firms, offering a simple, but delicious daily breakfast to your employees can have very much the same effect. And in fact, there are some very specific benefits to offering breakfast specifically to your employees on a regular, daily basis:
Get Everyone to Work on Time
It can be challenging to get all of your staff in the building and getting to work immediately, regardless of the type of business you run or the time of year. Some employees might arrive at work on time with a coffee in hand, while others arrive on time but eat their way through the morning.
Many employees report that they at least occasionally end up late for work as a result of making a breakfast stop en route. Daily corporate breakfast catering London is a great way to give your staff a reliable breakfast that gets everyone in on time and ready to get down to some serious work right away.
Boost Office Morale on the Daily
The idea of a brief daily morning meeting to boost office morale is not new, and it’s actually something a lot of businesses already do. Adding the lure of a great breakfast into the mix will only serve to make that morale boost even bigger.
Help Employees Stay Healthier
If your employees aren’t healthy, your bottom line won’t be either. Skipping breakfast, or eating a sugar heavy, junk food breakfast are not healthy practices, and can affect people, even if they do not realise it, for most of the day. Skipping breakfast can result in low blood sugar, headaches, and spending the morning hangry (which is a real, medical thing by the way) none of which is good for productivity and doing your best work!
Simply Make Your Employees Feel Appreciated
Ask any HR person or recruiter, and they’ll tell you that employees value more than just a decent salary when it comes to feeling appreciated and content with their job. If they feel that you appreciate them, and their work, enough to do something ‘cool’ like provide a healthy breakfast every day, then they will be a lot happier in the job. Sometimes it really is the ‘little things’ that make the biggest difference.
