Lunch and Learns

What are Lunch and Learns?

Lunch and learns, also known as “brown bag seminars” or “lunchtime learning sessions,” are a popular workplace initiative designed to promote continuous learning and professional development among employees. By offering these sessions, employers can demonstrate their commitment to employee development, enhance job satisfaction, and foster a learning culture within the organization.

Experts in Wellness and other training topics engage your employees online or in person during a single Lunch & Learn – or a series of 4, 6 or 12.  Pathways offers surveys following the event to gather feedback from the session.  Online events may be hosted on Pathway’s Zoom platform or an outside platform. 

Pathways Lunch and Learns can be presented on-site or virtually.
