Fall is typically a busy time of the year for businesses to refocus on work. One of the best ways to motivate your staff is to pair a day of training with food and treats that will keep them going. Here are just a few suggestions from caterers in Akron that will make your day long training event a success.
Think healthy. While it may be fun to have elaborate meals that your staff can enjoy, the food may leave them feeling lethargic and sluggish. Focus on fresh flavors and healthy options that will give them energy throughout the day.
Offer a light breakfast. With a focus on proteins and fruit, your team will be feeling energetic all morning. Omelet stations, fruit bowls and lean meats will keep them full throughout your morning session.
Create a snack bar. Having a snack bar open right after breakfast with bottled water, juices, fruit, muffins, and bagels can give every person a good option between breakfast and lunch.
Packed lunches are perfect for breakout sessions. With nice fall weather, having a packed gourmet lunch that can be taken outside during brainstorming or team building sessions can help everyone recharge. Turkey sandwiches on multigrain bread with provolone and pesto, a small salad and a drink can fuel people for the afternoon.
Provide afternoon snacks. When people hit the afternoon slump have chocolate and coffee available to help perk them up. Trail mix, dried fruits and cold drinks are also welcome additions to an afternoon snack bar.
Make the food at your fall kickoff training meeting as memorable as the training itself. By considering your team’s needs, you will let them know that they are cared for and valued. Contact Special Moments Catering today for more information on our corporate event planning and catering!
