In my 8+ years in the tech world, I have seen lunchtime or break time information sessions employed frequently for training purposes. In mostly virtual environments, this strategy still works as long as lunch is provided. This can be done through Doordash, Ubereats, etc.
Happy to jump on a call to go through specifics as needed.
Yes, it does have benefits.
This makes them a great way to foster a culture of learning and knowledge sharing in your organization. It can make them more flexible, more responsive to changing business conditions, and better able to step in when others are absent. A lunch and learn session can also be a “safe” environment for people to develop their confidence in presenting. And finally, providing attendees with complimentary food is a way for your organization to show that it appreciates its people, and their hard work.
