See what culinary creations Indeedians have been whipping up at home as part of “The Great Indeed Cooking Challenge.”

Indeed cutting board and cheese knives with charcuterie displayHistorically our offices around the globe have played a significant role in keeping employees fed and fueled. With this new work-from-home reality, we’ve had to adjust how we feed our hungry bellies so we can continue to unleash our talents day-to-day.

Although our working environments have changed, our appetite for good food has not! To celebrate our rich diversity and keep Indeedians connected, our Employee Experience team challenged us to our first ever #Ratemyplate competition.

Hundreds of recipes were submitted from all around the world with the hopes of making the final cut to be featured in our inaugural “Great Indeed Cookbook.”

Brona Crinion, Dublin Office Manager

“We hope these delicious creations will inspire employees and will be recreated in kitchens across the globe. Our team also hopes that this cookbook will showcase the culture, diversity and sense of a global community we have at Indeed,” Dublin Office Manager, Brona Crinion explains.

“No matter what circumstances we are facing, togetherness is always at the forefront of our agenda.”

With more than 200 submitted recipes and 86 dishes created, “we’re pretty confident that Indeedians will be spending their spare summer time cooking up a storm,” Brona adds.

Feeding a feeling of togetherness

We are continually amazed with the talent and creativity displayed by Indeedians. The response and participation has been incredible! One of the main goals of our Employee Experience team is to continue to build upon the amazing culture that resonates across Indeed no matter where we are.

According to Brona, “Even if they have not submitted, they have enjoyed seeing the dishes and taking part in the voting, creating a sense of ‘togetherness’ even though we may be physically apart. It also has provided opportunities for employees’ families to potentially take part and enjoy the Indeed culture too.”
