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 catering, without alienating any member of the team. If you're not sure what to have for lunch at work, check out our top picks below for inspiration.
