The benefits of having lunch together

Enable knowledge transfer

Colleagues get to know the roles and tasks of the other departments.
Internal networking within companies creates valuable personal networks of knowledge and skills.

Establish networking

Employees build up an internal network across departments and locations.
Better connections prevent silo mentalities from forming and dismantle existing knowledge silos.

Easy to start

Colleagues can quickly and easily register and create their own profile.
This enables the number of participating colleagues to grow as quickly as possible.

Strengthening culture

Regular exchanges help colleagues to understand the expectations others have of their own role and tasks.
This creates appreciation, cohesion, and a positive corporate culture.


Networking is important

    We have been using Mystery Minds at Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. During this time, it was the easiest way for many colleagues to get in touch with colleagues they didn't know and to look outside the box of their own department. Newcomers, in particular, have made great use of this and have built up an initial network. Meanwhile, our Lunch Roulette is an indispensable part of the daily life of the company and contributes to a lively corporate culture and lots of communication.

    Mystery Coffee has exceeded our expectations. When the pandemic started, we were looking for an effective way to significantly improve employee engagement in our increasingly virtual world. After 20 months, the user-friendly platform provided by Mystery Minds has created thousands of new relationships across our company. I get emails all the time from coworkers saying, ‘I just had the best Mystery Coffee’. I highly recommend it for any organization serious about driving positive company culture and employee engagement.
