As many EAs, PAs and administrative staff know all too well, it can be difficult to order corporate catering for a large group of people in the office. It can sometimes be challenging to cater to the wide range of tastebuds and if you have training, a conference or a meeting that lasts for a few days, it’s important to try not to order the same meals over and over again. And you do want to please everyone – studies have shown that office lunches can help increase productivity, engagement and can boost morale.
If your office is stuck in a sandwich rut and you need some inspiration, then look no further! It’s possible to order a variety of cuisines from Greek to Japanese, without alienating any member of the team. Check out our top picks below.
