Lunch-N-Learn. That may be a new term to you – unless you work at Clickstop.
Lunch-N-Learn events are just what they sound like. Grab your lunch, sit among your co-workers and learn about a subject, hobby or organization that sparks your interest.
Clickstop makes it a priority to give employees opportunities to grow professionally and personally. Lunch-N-Learn sessions are one of many resources available to educate employees about activities and organizations available outside of work. Guests have included medical experts on stress management and digestion to organizations like Junior Achievement, and today’s speaker, Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Clickstop has also invited its own employees to talk and teach about their passions. Sara loves to garden and taught us how to grow plants and vegetables. As a result, Clickstop planted a garden on site. Joe is always up for a game of disc golf and wanted to share his knowledge of the sport with his coworkers. Now, Clickstop has a disc chain set on company grounds were workers can enjoy the fresh air and a little competition during their breaks. I have even taken advantage of this opportunity. I talked to the company about an event near and dear to me – RAGBRAI. My co-workers learned about training methods and what to expect during the hot, summer bicycle ride that takes you across the state of Iowa.
This program is great because it opens people up to new opportunities. All you have to do is eat your lunch and listen – it really doesn’t get much easier than that.
