In a country where only one in three workers take a lunch break (away from their desks) it’s easy to forget basic dining etiquette when on the job. It’s even easier to forget how to carry ourselves at happy hours or out of office meals with the team in a work culture where socialization and work-life balance often go to the wayside.
Whether you’re an avid cafeteria goer or stick to snacking at your desk, we’ve got tips and guidelines for work-appropriate eating at the office (including keeping your space and communal eating areas spick and span, both of which show you are respectful and professional). And when it comes time to socialize outside of the breakroom, we have etiquette tips to stay professional and have fun—from stashing your phone to avoiding gossip.
