FREMONT, CA: Spiceology, the fastest-growing privately held spice company in America, announced partnerships with Pixlee and Loop Commerce, a Synchrony solution, on a "Coworkers Connecting Through Cooking" initiative for employers looking for fun and innovative ways to re-energize and deepen connections with their employees. The initiative draws employees together, virtually, around cooking at home, and includes guided access to engaging, live-streamed cooking classes, allows coworkers to share their culinary adventures digitally with their colleagues.
"Employers are struggling to find ways to foster collaboration and camaraderie among their employees when it's simply not safe to gather together. We're turning what can be a mundane experience of preparing your meals into an opportunity to socialize, connect and share passion for food with coworkers. Employees can experiment with flavor together, learn more about each other through food, and just enjoy the communal experience that home cooking provides," said Chip Overstreet, CEO of Spiceology.
With "Coworkers Connecting Through Cooking," each employee chooses a variety set of Spiceology's innovative spice blends using GiftNow, the Gift Experience Management solution from Loop Commerce. Spiceology chefs offer online cooking seminars customized for every organization to teach employees how to easily use their new spice blends to make their meals more delightful and have fun experimenting in the kitchen. Pixlee offers a private digital channel, code-named "Quarantine Kitchen," for each company's employees to share recipes, videos, and photos to boost connections.
San Francisco-based Lightbend is a global software company that participated in one of the first "Coworkers Connecting Through Cooking" team events.
"Like most every tech company in the world, we now have 100% of our employees working from home. While we spend plenty of time together on Zoom calls, we are missing the bonding opportunities that used to happen over lunch, hanging out in the corporate kitchen, and in the many restaurants we've visited together around the world. Coworkers Connecting Through Cooking" gives us a way for employees to engage in a unique, fun format, and helps us drive community in this new, disconnected workplace," said Sushila Sahay, executive vice president at Lightbend.
