It is very important for companies to focus on team building and bonding projects for their employees. One fun and unique idea for companies to do is a cooking class for all their employees to participate in. Cooking classes can build a lot of skills and be a ton of fun at the same time! Here are some of the benefits of attending a corporate cooking class.
Cooking takes a lot of preparation, communication, and teamwork to create a delicious final product. Having employees working together to prioritize tasks and assign different jobs will significantly build their communication skills for each other.
Get to Know Each Other
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, many jobs have a mix of remote and in-office staff, making it hard for employees to get to know each other and connect. Even if your company is all in-office, your employees still probably don’t know much about each other other than surface-level information. Having a fun and exciting activity that does not focus around your job can help employees get to know each other better and build better connections—having employees who are friends with each other can really improve the environment in your workplace. A friendly work environment can improve morale, team productivity, and effectiveness.
Learn New Skills
Participating in a cooking class, especially a dumpling-making class, will teach employees new skills such as understanding recipes, preparing/measuring ingredients, proper dumpling folding techniques, and a taste of a new cuisine!
Enjoy Delicious Food
And last but definitely not least, your whole company will be able to enjoy the delicious final product that they all worked on together! Each employee will also be able to leave the class with the knowledge of how to make this new recipe to share it with their family.
