Lunch Roulette

for HCL Connections and HCL Connections Engagement Center

Connect with new colleagues via HCL Connections!

Randomly bring together employees from different departments of your company. With Lunch Roulette, the participants are assigned a partner with whom they can arrange to have lunch together. Employees thus have the opportunity to network and exchange information throughout the company. This also brings advantages for the onboarding process: new employees quickly get into contact with colleagues and can benefit both socially and professionally.

To participate, users log in to the Lunch Roulette. They select date, time and location and are assigned directly to a partner (matching). In addition, both partners receive an e-mail about the details of the match (e.g. profile of the partner including contact details). Afterwards, both can arrange to have lunch together.

Lunch Roulette will be integrated into HCL Connections and HCL Connections Engagement Center

Lunch Roulette is a web application that is integrated with HCL Connections Engagement Center (formerly IBM Connections Engagement Center, short ICEC) in HCL Connections (formerly IBM Connections). The application backend is implemented with Node.js. The database uses a MongoDB.
