Lunch Inc. Puts Wellness To Work
- Thursday, Dec. 9, 2021
Lunch Inc. launches a new menu to bring wellness to work and brings experts from the arts, wellness & marketing together to revitalize and uplift careers, teams and corporate culture.
Lunch is a creative services company that delivers advertising, marketing and production services. Founded in 2009 by Internationally award-winning Executive Producer and Healing Practitioner, Amy Miranda, Lunch provides everything from strategy to execution across all mediums. The company made the creative process as easy as ordering lunch. During the pandemic, Miranda heard from creatives who shared their need for specialized services designed to support the people, not just the productions. Known for their deep rolodex and ability to assemble dynamic creative collectives, Lunch is answering the call.
“The need has changed. 13 years ago people needed production support, coming through a pandemic - people just need support. We know how many people end up on leave because of burnout. We have always been people first. We know how to make work fun, we know about ROI and we know how to bring people together. The new menu brings our approach to everyone. We’re sharing our skills, tools and practices to reenergize individual careers and corporate culture. Places of employment can be places of enjoyment, and we’re bringing incredible talent to the table to do it.” - Amy Miranda.
Lunch’s new menu of offerings help bridge this gap and bring balance to business. The menu includes professional development and training to wellness workshops and creative retreats. Served up by wellness experts, mental health professionals and multidisciplinary artists, Lunch’s new offerings promise to revitalize careers, reinspire teams and uplift corporate cultures.
Some highlights from Lunch’s new menu:
- Wellness Panel - A customized panel of industry and wellness experts, assembled to offer a professional review and report card for campaigns, product offerings, or operational planning.
- Tune-up - A consultation where a panel of experts will take a look under the hood of careers, teams, or operations. Providing a jump-start of inspiration and sharing practices, recommendations and improvements to help keep things well-oiled into the future.
- Retreat and Camp - 1-3 day experiences designed to reignite wonder and create better workplaces (and people). Campers will have access to an inspiration and self care fair of programming designed to help recalibrate, create and reset. Facilitated by a collective of artists and wellness experts, fueled with music, and movement designed to bring teams, organizations, or individual careers back into balance.
