Hungry? There is a free lunch!

Image
People connect over food - that’s why we meet friends, family, or dates for dinner or drinks. Sharing a meal brings us together and encouraged us to interact on a personal level.

Team building during lunch is a great way to increase cooperation within coworkers, improve communication among teams and, as a result, the power that comes when co-workers have fun together. That’s why one of the many benefits at Mujin is a free buffet-style lunch made fresh every day by our chef (please check our #benefits).


At Mujin, the original idea was to eliminate as many distractions as we can and continuously support our talents. All they have to do is think about coming in, and we, Mujin, take care of everything else they needed during the day.
But lunch time has become something more than just another meal. It has become a core part of our culture and employee satisfaction: it is a space for creativity, collaboration, and authenticity. Lunch time is now a venue for relationship building between te…

Happy Valentine's Day 💝
Today we had a Valentine celebration during the lunch time! While Mujin family is growing very fast, we value such warm-hearted culture.
At our lunch, our chef also prepared delicious hot chocolate, chocolate cake and brownie, and we enjoyed the atmosphere!
We all have friends at work! Valentine's Day isn't just for romance! Celebrating Valentine's Day in the office is a a chance to celebrate the vitality of workplace friendships. We decorate our dining and participated in special Valentines activities.


We share our “workplace love”! We use sticky notes to leave some warm messages to our friends  at Mujin whom we offer our heartfelt thanks and appreciation! So many meaningful messages, love it!
One more activity is a cookie decoration! We provide small heart shaped cookies and special deco pen for icing. Looks like our employees have so much fun while doing it! Most of them draw hearts and immediately eat it (no time for the photo 😆), some of…

Speak & Lunch at Mujin

Image
Just like how misunderstandings can occur in our daily lives, when we communicate with someone from a different background or culture, miscommunication within an organisation can be a big problem. The same problem might be understood or viewed differently by different employees. 
Imagine that all your employees come from different backgrounds (Diversity: everyone is unique) and speak different languages. It would be very difficult to communicate effectively. So, how do we deal with this? Clear communication within an organization is one of the keys to success. 
In Mujin, there are employees from 21 different countries. This fact makes Mujin a global company. A global company united by a common language.

During Speak&Lunch
It is said that people are shy to speak another language because they don’t want to make mistakes in front of others. At Mujin, we share two common languages: Japanese and English. Mujin provides weekly Japanese classes for those who want to learn, and to help so…
