We in information technology are human too, and according to Maslow's hierarchy of need's the first need we have is Physiological. That is food, beverage etc. When you ask your IT staff to setup a computer presentation for a meeting that you are providing bagels for don't forget that along with fulfilling the needs of the attendee's provide your IT staff with a bagel too beverage is optional.
P.S. Maslow is the only thing I remember from COM 114 in college. I should have paid better attention in that course.
