Why you should hire a catering service for your next meeting

When business meetings take place across the day and encompass mealtimes, it makes sense to consider a professional catering service. Here are our top reasons to hire an experienced catering company.

Hunger leads to a drop in productivity

Productivity levels drop when people are hungry and this can occur in the run up to meal times if people do not know what, or when, they will eat. Corporate lunch catering services will help to maintain energy levels throughout the afternoon too, and will also ensure that attendees have healthy options available to avoid the dreaded sugar and carb fatigue later in the day.

Corporate catering services reflect on the quality of your business

When hosting a meeting for guests from outside of your organisation, supplying professional catering services will foster good relations and reflect on the hospitality of your business. Impress potential new clients or business partners with a hot or cold buffet lunch and show them how much you care about connecting with them and accommodating their needs.

Incentivise and motivate regular staff members

A survey by glassdoor.com showed that almost half (46% of those questioned) of employees felt appreciated when meals were provided and, while supplying lunch may not be the norm on a regular working day, providing buffet catering at company meetings will show employees how valued they are. Valued staff will work harder knowing their efforts are recognised, and in turn, productivity will increase.
