Snippet: For white-collar workers, so much of work life in the past six months has gone virtual. We Zoom and Slack our way through interactions that used to happen in conference rooms and in cubicle huddles. But there is no online substitution for the essential function of the business lunch, which is to put humans in face-to-face contact in a relaxed, neutral setting.
Business lunches will no doubt become less frequent as more people work from home, but they may take on more importance.
There are some kinds of tasks, projects and periods of time where in-person collaboration is optimal. Organizations are going to be much more deliberate to create face time for them. Some business lunches will be in that category. People will reserve a special place for them.
