Yep, you read that right. The last Friday of every January (January 28, 2022) is International Fun at Work Day! What better way to celebrate than rewarding your team with a delicious office lunch? Here are some ideas to make sure your office takes full advantage of this holiday.

  • Game Day

It can be difficult to come up with ideas to thank your employees for their hard work while simultaneously fostering team morale. A company-wide game day is a fantastic way to do just that! Some ideas include trivia games, icebreakers, scavenger hunts, or a field day. Get your team ready to compete by nourishing them with an office brunch spread beforehand – a couple of Caffe Bene’s catering platters should do the trick!

  • Volunteer Day

Nothing feels better than helping others. Forego a typical office party and go for a charitable event to watch your company spirit flourish. As a New York City catering platform, we have a special connection with food banks and other meal assistance organizations. Some of our favorite NYC charities include Love Kitchen, City Harvest, and The Urban Outreach Center of NYC

  • Pizza Party

Everyone loves pizza. It’s a fact. Conveniently, pizza catering is one of the easiest ways to order in large quantities and with enough variety to satisfy every palate. We love Stone Bridge Pizza & Salad for farm-to-table selections, or Upper East Side’s Zazzy’s Pizza for a vegan catering spread. Need vendors for gluten-free catering? Try Wild Park Slope to accompany your event’s dietary restrictions. 

  • Meditation & Yoga

January can be a stressful time for companies and employees across many industries. Get your team grounded by streaming an online yoga or meditation session. Taking just one hour out of the work day to center your team can do wonders for your company goals. Lean into the holistic health vibe and finish the session with a healthy office lunch. We love SNOB (Sophie’s Natural Organic Bowls) for acai bowls and smoothies, and Avocaderia – the world’s first avocado bar – for a beautiful spread of toasts and salads to complement your office catering.

  • Get Outside Day

Weather permitting, a day of activity in the great outdoors is a fantastic way to take a break from the walls of the office and have some fun. We’re big fans of CitiBike – rent as many bikes as you need and go for a tour around the area. This is a surefire way to get your team laughing, bonding, and boosting endorphins. What better way to reward your team after a workout than with some good old fashioned wings? We recommend Brooklyn’s The Bergen for classic Buffalo wings and Mister Chicken II for a whopping platter of fried chicken.
