Hybrid Catering for Employees Returning Back to the Office

The working environment is constantly changing as many companies begin transitioning to a hybrid work model. Whether your company is making a full transition back to the office, or slowly phasing it in, there’s one thing that’s for certain… you need to eat. There’s always the option of leaving the office to grab a bite, but that’s not always the most ideal choice depending on elevator wait times, the proximity of your office relative to restaurants, and other factors. Hybrid Catering makes it easy to feed employees wherever they are—at home, in the office, or offsite at another location.

“Hybrid Catering offers the best of both worlds, so your staff and employees can eat delicious chef crafted cuisine from wherever they’re working.”

What is Hybrid Catering?

Many companies are moving towards a hybrid work model, with some employees coming to the office while others continue to work from home. Hybrid Catering follows the same principles. Hybrid Catering allows your event to be catered across multiple different locations, providing meals for individuals at their homes, as well as individuals onsite for the event. Hybrid Catering offers the best of both worlds, so your staff and employees can eat delicious chef crafted cuisine from wherever they’re working. For example, if your company is having an annual budget meeting where some employees will be working in-office while others are still working from home, individually packaged meals can be provided to the employees at home, and in the office. At Encore Catering, we use our Virtual Catering Application and combine it with our 40+ years of Corporate Catering experience to seamlessly execute a Hybrid Catering event for virtual attendees (eg. employees working from home) and in-person attendees (eg. employees working at the office).

“Both Hybrid Catering and Virtual Catering promote inclusivity for all employees as they get to enjoy the same delicious food, regardless of where they’re working.”

Hybrid Catering vs. Virtual Catering

Hybrid Catering and Virtual Catering may sound like the same thing, but they have one main difference. Virtual Catering is when all of the attendees are in separate locations and the whole event is virtual, whereas Hybrid Catering is when some of the attendees are virtual and some are onsite at the event’s location. In essence, Virtual Catering and Hybrid Catering offer the same thing—catered meals for all attendees. Both Hybrid Catering and Virtual Catering promote inclusivity for all employees as they get to enjoy the same delicious food, regardless of where they’re working.

“Do some of your employees still work from home, and does your company ever require catering? If the answer is “Yes” to both, Hybrid Catering might be perfect for you.”

Does Your Company Need Hybrid Catering?

Whether or not your company needs Hybrid Catering is only something that you can answer. Here are a few things to consider if Hybrid Catering is right for your company:

– Does your company have some employees working from home, and some in the office?

– Has your company ever provided catered meals for employees?

– Is your company thinking about providing catered meals for employees, either now or in the future?

– Does your company cater corporate events (meetings, galas, etc.)

Ultimately, it comes down to two important questions. Do some of your employees still work from home, and does your company ever require catering? If the answer is “Yes” to both, Hybrid Catering might be perfect for you.

“If your workplace is transitioning to a hybrid work model, you’ll need catering that’s convenient and easy to feed your employees wherever they are.”
