Food is a great way to bring people together, so why not throw a working lunch to bring all of your clients together? Whether it is a classy sit-down meal, or a relaxed buffet, hosting a working lunch can be very advantageous for your business for several reasons.
Chatting over lunch could be key to developing your relationship with your clients, both socially and in terms of work. It’s proven that having a strong social relationship with colleagues improves the productivity in the workplace, so perhaps the same applies to two companies working together. The fact you are willing to host lunch will only improve your clients’ opinion of you as it shows that you care, and are more than two businesses just working together.
Your clients will also benefit from attending your working lunch, as they will integrate with each other, perhaps sparking business between them. This will help maintain a positive relationship with your clients, as they will want to attend any future events, as it is an opportunity to interact with other companies. Hosting the lunch at your workplace is very beneficial as it allows your clients to become familiar with your business, and also to meet other employees who work at your business, improving the relationship between you and your clients.
