Phoenix, AZ, May 21, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Startup company, StaffUnity.com, this week released its new subscription lunch club service aimed at helping medium to large companies improve workplace culture by bringing staff members together for random lunch meetings.
The system was created and developed by graphic designer, Tim Clarke, after a personal experience with a co-worker led him to the idea. “I was having difficulty getting an important project completed with a fellow employee in another department, so our managers suggested that the two of us get together for lunch,” Clarke said. “After a single meeting, we were able to get to know each other personally, and our work relationship improved immensely. Immediately following that meeting, I imagined what kind of impact this could have on a company’s overall morale, if this experience could be multiplied hundreds of times.”
The company’s website contains an interactive calculator showing how a small staff can experience hundreds of new connections in one year by using the service.
The proprietary system was designed to create lunch groups based on a past meeting archive, thereby ensuring unique matches whenever possible. Participating employees who accept an email invite are entered into a pool and matched in groups of 2-4 to meet at a designated time and place.
The web-based program is administered by a single employee and runs automatically after a quick initial setup. All employees are entered into the database and can permanently opt-out with a single click. Incentives for employees to participate, such as free movie tickets or paid lunches, can be directed easily by using the built-in random drawing buttons.
Clarke said he believes, “A connected staff leads to better communication and productivity which benefits the company and its employees.”
