Employees and Team Building

The typical in-person office work culture that has been around for so many years is quickly shifting into a new workplace model of employees working remotely or with a hybrid schedule. This has led employers and team leaders to look for new ways to reach out to remote workers and connect as a team. One of the best ways to connect with and inspire your team is to enjoy snacks together in an engaging and impactful way.
We all know breaks are important and snacks are delicious. So what could be better than having both at the same time as a team?
Research conducted by the University of Chicago found that strangers who eat the same food increases trust and cooperation. In the study, one group of paired strangers ate the same food at the same time; then engaged in a role-play game that measured trust. A second group of paired strangers ate different foods at the same time; then did the same role play. It was found that the group of strangers who ate the same food at the same time registered 30% higher levels of trust than those who did not.
As a part of the same study, strangers were again arranged into pairs. Some pairs ate the same foods at the same time, while the other pairs ate different foods at the same time. This time, the pairs were asked to negotiate to resolve a dispute. Strangers who ate the same food at the same time reached a resolution 2 times faster than those who did not.
