Better connected employees

The Lunchzeit platform connects employees across departments, locations and teams for lunch or coffee, in-person or virtually. Improve onboarding, belonging, inclusion, and retention. Your employees will love coming back to the office.

As individual as your company

We have learned in the past years that no two companies are alike. That is why we always adjust Lunchzeit according to your wishes and requirements.

Lunch Lottery

Our smart algorithm connects your employees each week in a maximally diverse way, considering department, shared interests, languages, length of service, etc. Access via web app is seamlessly possible with any browser and device.

Lunchzeit Statistics

The admin dashboard provides you with all key metrics on a monthly basis, and you can independently update important data at any time. Additionally, we send you the most important metrics via email every month and, if necessary, suggest actions to take.

Lunch Lottery

If your company already offers an analog lottery or has always wanted to try a lunch lottery, our digital solution is perfect for you. Lunchzeit connects two people one to four times a month. The drawing and notifications are conveniently handled via email. When and where your employees meet is up to them.

All data at a glance

The admin dashboard provides employers with all the data they need at a glance. Employers specify users who should be given admin rights. Every month admins can see how many employees registered, how many meetings were suggested, and much more.

Scientific studies


Project Aristoteles
"The most productive employees tend to form large networks through changing lunch partners."


Study 2015
"When employees feel comfortable and connected, they are sick half as often, six times less absent, nine times more loyal, 31% more productive and 55% more creative."

Caitlin Porter

University of Purdue
“Our research has shown that when employees feel well connected, the likelihood of switching is reduced by 140 percent. Giving employees the opportunity to build relationships with colleagues could help them stay with them longer."

Frequently asked questions and answers

We've put together some of the most frequently asked questions for you. If you cannot find an answer to your question, please do not hesitate to contact us.

You encourage the internal exchange of knowledge beyond existing departmental and location boundaries. Recently published studies show that well-connected employees generally feel more comfortable and are therefore less likely to change jobs. But your company also saves costs, as the improved transfer of knowledge can prevent redundant work. New employees will love Lunchzeit because it significantly speeds up and simplifies their onboarding. Last but not least, the use of a lunch lottery makes sense in times of hybrid working.

There is almost no effort on your side. As soon as you are a member of Lunchzeit, you only have to tell your employees that they can access Lunchzeit via their browser or mobile app. For the internal promotion you can use e.g. newsletters, posters, info sessions, etc. Of course we are happy to support you!

Your employees can use the web interface from any browser. A business email address is required for registration. In this way we can validate that only employees from your company register. As soon as the email address is confirmed, your employees can create profiles and start networking.

Lunchzeit can be used via any browser. All you need to register is your work e-mail address. After the user profile has been created, our application asks every Wednesday by e-mail whether you would like to take part in the lottery. The draw then takes place on the following Monday. Or you can simply activate the monthly lottery and don’t have to worry about anything else.

Data security is very important to us. That’s why we only host on servers in Germany that meet international certification standards for information security management systems (ISO 27001) and the protection of personal data in public clouds (ISO 27018). We use an HTTPS protocol and do not share data with third parties. Our app works completely independently of your IT infrastructure and does not need to be connected to your systems. We are also happy to provide you with our list of technical and organizational measures and/or the system architecture as part of the implementation.

Our focus is clearly on the lunch lottery, as this is the most frequently used feature. We make it as easy as possible for users to meet new people. Lunchzeit creates the best possible matches, but does not specify the time and place of the meeting. The two people matched decide for themselves how and where they (virtually) meet. 

We will be happy to integrate your logo, which will then be displayed after login. In addition, certain adjustments can be made to the algorithm that may be useful for your purposes.

The application is available in German, English, French and Italian. Other languages can be integrated on request.

With us, there is no user-based pricing, but an “all-inclusive” annual price that does not change. The price is based on the number of employees you wish to make the networking tool available to.
