Connection Over Food Is Important for Your Team

Cold beer on a warm day, and the promise of poignantly finite weekend is one of life’s most bittersweet pleasures.

Once every few weeks, our teams have Friday afternoon off to sample the culinary delights of different venues around Oxford. Last week, some of our mechanical engineers – and one of our Directors – enjoyed a sumptuous vegetarian and vegan feast at The Punter Pub Oxford.

Revamped as a plant-based menu in late 2019/early 2020, The Punter now caters to the growing number of people in Oxford seeking to adopt this lifestyle.

From a menu stacked with eye-wateringly delicious, locally-sourced options, the team enjoyed a healthy, sustainability-friendly lunch, while taking in the psychedelic artwork on the walls of the pub.

As an Investors in People (Silver) company, CBG Consultants place value on the importance of social connection between team members and managers, both in the office and out. Creating space for teams and managers to decompress and engage with each other outside of the office is key to overall happiness and health. Connecting over food has long been known to create a space share more free-thinking ideas.
