Why would my bosses want to take me out for dinner?

I've never had a job that's given me bonuses or a hefty raise. They recognize me for my hard work and reliability, and i'm always in shock by it. It's amazing, honestly.

I've never had a job that's given me bonuses or a hefty raise. They recognize me for my hard work and reliability, and i'm always in shock by it. It's amazing, honestly.

It's a family run business, and i'm only a college student who needs income, but i also love my job and the clients i work with.

They now want to take my out for dinner, the two of them, and i'm wondering why. I know it's not a bad thing. Is it for socializtion, a meeting, to reward me or to tell me awesome news?
I simply don't know why a boss would take their employee out for dinner.

It's a nice thing to do, does not cost much, and doesn't have to mean anything.
In IBM, they sometimes gave out gift cards for dinner.

Never try to predict the outcome of something like this. You have nothing to gain in trying.
Good news, bad news, or no news, you only get yourself excited.

Good management is all about establishing relationships. You can't get much better than sharing food to make a personal connection with someone.

These folks clearly value their employees and want to make them happy. They want to retain your services. Good job to you.

I had a company that treated me really well, and I couldn't figure it out. "Why are they treating me like a star?" I worked my way up, eventually to an executive position, and finally realized why they treated me like that. When I moved into the position of recruiting, hiring, training, and managing, I realized the job I was doing took a very specific personality and set of aptitudes, which I did not know was very rare. I thought I was just showing up and doing a good job, but it turns out that finding people with the right qualities is like finding a needle in a haystack.

Don't overthink it. You're doing a good job and they want to make sure you enjoy working there. Be grateful you've fallen in with good employers. Many aren't like that, but the better employers are.

My daughter takes her staff members to lunch/dinner a lot. She's a really good boss.

It could be any or all of those great things! Remember to treat this as a business dinner and behave the same way you would at work.
tro:
this is not unusual, as long as it is not just ONE boss this should be a nice outing
the reason could be anything, to get to know you better, perhaps is done for all employees at some time, they might have more employment in mind for you depending on what your goal in college is

Don't spend your time worrying about something like that, it won't be bad news because they wouldn't take and pay for dinner. It's either they just fancy a nice meal with their staff or they have good news. Don't dwell on something like that!
