Improving Morale – Brown Bag Lunches

One law department I consulted to arranges monthly lunches for its members.  The lunches are in a conference room, and the department pays for sodas and some dessert.  People who attend bring their own lunches. 

The department sometimes uses the lunches for very short presentations by a lawyer or paralegal about matters they were working on.  This allows others in the department to get a sense of what is going on.  Primarily, though, the department’s managers see this small investment as a way to create a more congenial environment, to punch some holes in the silos, and to help people to get to know each other.
