New Network To Workers: Take Back Your Lunch Hour
After signing up to getlunched.com, users can search profiles of people with whom they might want to eat. The site's co-founder Matt Bandy says that the lunch hour is often wasted in London, citing the pressure of the economic climate, meaning workers do not want to appear to take a long break. While it's not in any employer's interest to revert to the long boozy lunches of the 1980s, experts agree that an engaging conversation is a prime motivator. After selecting a perspective lunch partner on getlunched.com, the next step is to agree terms. Clicking on an "I'm buying", "You're buying", "50:50" or" Open for offers" category, members can signpost their expectations from the get go.
