    Can we go out to eat in lunch timings?

    We have lunch timing for 1 hour in our office. We all usually bring lunch boxes with us so there is no need to go out and have lunch. But will it be permit table if we go outside the office premises in lunch time and have the lunch or will the management raise question on this?

    * You have a solid one hour for lunch...!

    * You can bring lunch or go out.. !

    * Its completely your wish..!

    * You do not need to depend or blame the management,...!

    * If you did not cook or if you stay in a hostel or lodge, then it is a compulsion for you to go and eat food from outside...!

    * So, you can even go out , eat as per your wish...No issues about this...!!

    * But if there is any rule or condition in your management that it wont allow you to go out and eat, then do not deny it...!

    * In such a situation, you can buy the food from outside and eat within the office or eat from Office mess or canteen available...!

    hi friend,

    definitely you can go out in the lunch timings.
    but you should come in time.

    as you have 1 hour as lunch time you can go near eat out place to your office and can have a fine lunch.

    no one cares whether you eat or out.

    all the thing matter is the punctuality

    all the best

    Generally in every company there is a facility of canteens, so even if the employee doesn't bring the tiffins, they can go into the canteen and complete their lunch. Since you were given one hour time for the lunch, so you have good time to go out and take the lunch. Generally Companies doesn't have any objection but they need to be on time in the office after the completion of lunch timings. Though every companies have different rules as they are not bound in regard to it, so i suggest to know the rule of company , or contact any senior employee who have better knowledge to assist you.

    Re: Can we go out to eat in lunch timings?

    Hi friend

    Lunch time at anyone's workplace is like a free period for them like you used to have at your school. In this free time no restrictions are imposed on you but of course if you are having lunch at your workplace you have to maintain a certain decorum. You are certainly free to go wherever you want during this period provided you come back in time for continuing your work. So you should definitely go outside and have lunch with your colleagues at a restaurant or in some park. I dont think your management will have any objection in this as this is your free time and you are not bound to do any work for the company .Your management will have objection if you break the rules and come back late from outside after having lunch. So you should be careful and responsible enough to come back in time .

    And I think you should certainly go outside as this be a good change from your monotonous routine and also you will get fresh air which is very good for your health. So do have a change for yourself and enjoy the outing if only for 1 hr. But it will still be better than having lunch inside the office premises where you spend your whole day. So friend be happy and do whatever you can to keep yourself and others happy in good spirits.

    I hope you have a blast friend. Good luck

    Dear friend....
    It's up to you whether you want to bring your lunch box or you want to go outside for lunch in the lunch hours.
    But the condition is that you should finish your lunch in the lunch hours and reach the office in time.

    Dear Aspirant,

    You demand is very genuine & it is in practice in most of the govt.offices/Banking/Insurance sectors.Only thing you should not take any thing which is not permitted during duty hrs. & must come back to your work place in time i.e within one hr. of the lunch time.

    In order to get it clear,consult the manager,HR or your reporting boss.If your reporting boss does not allow,then you can contact the manager HR or head of the organisation.It would be better to start a new culture with the permission of your management.If you are not permitted,then you should give joint written representation to the manager HR & your head of the organisation.

    But I don't think you will have to give it in writing.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Ashok

    =================================

    Hi,

    Yes you can go out for having your lunch but make sure that you are back in the office after 1 hour.
    It should be that after having your lunch you plan out to go for a movie and then return back to the office after 2-3 hours.
    Such behavior will not be tolerated by the management!

    Make sure that after having your lunch,you are back to the office in the permissible time limit!

    Bye

    Re: Can we go out to eat in lunch timings?

    Hello friend,,.

    I always take my own when I go out to dinner. If you are in a group the restaurant does not seem to mind.
    I say that I am on a special diet and can only eat my own food.
    I even do this at weddings. I normally have my food in bags and just ask them to bring me a clean plate.
    My son is getting married next month so I have to be a bit more "proper" so I will prepare it nicely in bowls and put cling wrap on top and let them serve me.

    THAT'S ALL , , ,THANK YOU

    Hi.........,

    Suggestions----->
    * Interval time is a specific time in office premesis.
    * Thus you can have lunch in office or at outer as per your choice.
    * Interval time is minimum of half an hour.
    * Thus I do not think that you should seek for permission.
    * But you must be punctual in nature.
    * It means that do reach at office before 5 minutes of interval over time.
    * This will help in time management.

    Thanks

    Re: Can we go out to eat in lunch timings?

    Hello ,
    There should be no problem with the authorities if you are going for your lunch outside .
    The company provides you with a 1 hour lunch break , and they should not be bothered where
    you go to have your lunch .
    It is not possible to get lunch always from home and its gets very monotonous to have the same lunch again .
    Some companies actually have a provision for it . They have a good neat and healthy canteen for the employee
    which cater for their desires .

    But even if some one wants to have lunch from with some person outside the work-place he can go .
    This matter can be sort out with the management whether a permission or just a mention of leaving the campass
    should be given or not .


    It should be HIS / HER responsibility to return to his desk on time because they the management can raise its
    voice and you cannot blame anyone else .

    So be carefull regarding the TIME , rest no one should mind going to a restraunt for lunch with colleages .

    Re: Can we go out to eat in lunch timings?

    yes you can take permission from your manager for going out and have lunch usually manager gives permission to do so. And also you have 1hr timing for lunch..Then you can definitely go but inform it to your respective manager.. but one thing i want to say that go out for lunch outside only on occasions like 2 times in a week,or when your work is finished free times like after your assigned work is finished... don't get noticed by management when you go frequently because it may seem bit confused about your nature... don't make it a habit going outside.. don't give chance for pointing you.. take care

    Re: Can we go out to eat in lunch timings?

    Dear it completely depends on the rules and regulations of the company i mean to say that if your company has made the rules that, all the employees would get one an hour for lunch in the mid day then you got the time for lunch but if your company has mentioned one thing also in the instructions that - No one from the office would go outside for lunch during the lunch hour then you can not go outside and can not avoid the rules of your company but if your company has mentioned that employees may go outside of the office premisses and are allowed to have lunch in the market then you can go for lunch outside but dear you have to read the instructions of the company carefully and if your company has not mentioned anything about this then you should go the the manager directly and ask them for it that are you allowed or not to go outside of the office during lunch time and if they say yes then you can go but if they say no then you can not ignore your manger and spoil the discipline of the company

    All the best

    Re: Can we go out to eat in lunch timings?

    Hello Friend,
    Yeah definitely you can go out for lunch if you keep the time limit in mind and be back in time.as you said so many people go for lunch together and if you dont come back in time and so many people found missing form any project then any one will doubt and raise a question.
    if you come 5-10 minute late its manageable but 20-30 mins late is a issue.
    what you can do is go out with few members or less teammates such that others will cover for you.and dont make it a frequent occurrence,you can go for lunch outside the comapny once or twice in a month ,there will be no issue.
    hope you understand.
    Thank you.

    Yes. You can go out for lunch.

    There is nothing wrong in this.

    It is not mandatory that you should finish your lunch inside office only.

    But make sure that all your assigned work should be done on time.

    Otherwise you will get negative impression.

    So, do it occasionally but not regularly.
