Onsite cafe

Our current home at the Business park has a cafe onsite for Breakfast and lunches. The food includes hot and cold dishes and healthy items as well.

It is so important during the day our consultants can have hot or cold food, food is so important.

As well as the onsite cafe, we have a microwave in the office room and our own fridge. Consultants can bring food from home to heat up for lunch, if they do not want to use the onsite cafe.

Set lunch breaks, we do not eat and work at the same time, like many agencies. We stop as a team for lunch and eat as much as possible together. It is very important to have a break.
