comment organiser les défis culinaires dans votre entreprise?

Motivation is a fundamental thing within a company. Indeed, always cornered at work, your collaborators could become counterproductive, and see their ardor dull, over time. In this case, even holidays may not be enough to motivate them. So how can cooking challenges give motivation to workers in your company? Before answering this question, let us explain what it means to organize culinary challenges in a business.

Culinary challenges, what is it?

These are culinary challenges , presenting all kinds of team building activities (blind tasting, cocktail making, chef’s workshop, almost perfect dinner, etc.). It will be up to you to choose the activities that suit you best, while varying them according to your frequency. The concept of team building is, in fact, to organize internal competitions, obviously of a playful nature, for the benefit of the employees of a company. This is to strengthen the team spirit and socio-professional cohesion. Something that allows, moreover, to break the cycle of the routine, and to unite your colleagues more around an activity. This is very useful, especially when the company is large, and some agents even ignore it, working for the same organization.

Why the kitchen?

It is true that there are a variety of team building (sports games, puzzle games, treasure hunt, etc.). However, not all employees may be fit for sport, which can easily tire, rather than distract. Puzzle games, on the other hand, are likely to get bored quickly. Often, a large number of employees do not participate, especially women. On the other hand, a cooking challenge allows, first of all, to involve all of your employees. Cooking together, eating, drinking will allow your team members to get to know each other in a much more personal way, in all other facets. It is the place for some, to assert their cultural identity , through the concocted dishes. In short, a culinary challenge is much more fun, more participative, and in addition, less expensive, than other activities.

Culinary team building, how to do it?

You have the choice between organizing your culinary challenges independently, calling on professionals, or simply a chef. Whichever option you choose, it promises to be interesting. However, here are some tips for you to live unforgettable moments.
  • Mixed teams
The objective being to reinforce social cohesion, within the members of your company, take pleasure in varying the composition of the teams . Do not form teams by affiliation, departments, or according to individual preferences. It would take the most mixing, for new meetings. Otherwise, you could create sectional rivalries, instead of a shared harmony. Depending on the size of your business, make up teams of 3 to 6 people. Also take pleasure in inviting external companies . You would be amazed at how much your colleagues can show solidarity.
  • Challenges without taboos
Inutile d’instaurer des règles pompeuses, si ce n’est celle-ci : défense de mettre feu au bâtiment ; puisque trop de règles, rendraient l’activité contraignante, semblable à des consignes professionnelles. Ne l’oubliez pas, le but de cette séance est de s’amuser, pas de punir, ni de maintenir sur la braise. Il faudra néanmoins instaurer un deadline, pour la fin de chaque préparation ceci pour ne pas abuser du temps. 1 heure 30 au maximum pour cuisiner, et 30 minutes pour la dégustation.
  • L’autonomie du choix des repas
Pour des défis culinaires intra-entreprises, il est préférable de laisser chaque équipe définir un mets de concert. C’est d’ailleurs l’un des avantages de former des équipes. Ils pourront, en dépit de la diversité des origines de chaque individu, retenir un plat, et connaître, par ricochet, les allergies de l’autre. Attendez-vous à des surprises. Certains mets peuvent ne pas avoir de nom. Car tout le monde aura apporté sa pierre au contenu de la casserole. D’où le sens de la créativité et de l’acceptation individuelle. Par mesure de sécurité, engagez un chef cuisinier pour prévenir tous les risques d’intoxication alimentaire par inadvertance, et de constipation.
  • Un jury original
Vous aurez un jury formel, chargé de déguster et de délibérer, mais aussi, toutes les équipes pourront également goûter, à tour de rôle, aux repas cuisinés, et ensuite attribuer des notes. Dégustation à l’aveuglette, talents cachés du chef… Diversifiez les activités, pour plus pimenter la séance.
  • Des prix comme récompenses
Les prix sont un excellent moyen de galvaniser votre personnel, et de pousser la totalité des employés à y participer. Pas de lots grandiloquents : stylos, blocs-notes, ustensiles, etc., seront largement suffisants.
  • Des défis culinaires réguliers
Don’t settle for just one organization per year. Too little to arouse impatience. Take advantage of the end of year celebrations, as well as all these small occasions, to make your various celebrations more festive. This can only boost your employees, and make them want to always be part of the company. You could, moreover, change the setting from time to time, for an exquisite change of scenery, and a pleasant relaxation.
