No matter how much your employees love their job or how driven and motivated they feel at the workplace, they need an inviting break room to stay positive, focused, and effective. According to a study by Forbes, workers who take regular breaks are more productive and focused than their counterparts who don’t.
Here are some fantastic ideas to create the ultimate break room for your company.
Improve Comfort and Functionality
To improve comfort, design your office break room with a variety of comfortable furniture options, including lunch tables and dining chairs, where they can sit and eat a meal.
Since the break room is more than just a place to eat, include more-relaxing seating options like sofas, chaise lounges, or even recliners where employees can get together, share ideas, and form valuable friendships.
You can incorporate exciting colors and seasonal decorations in your break room’s design to create an uplifting and relaxing atmosphere that reflects positively on workers’ performance.
Make it Employee-Oriented
Consider providing some games or activities in the break room to keep your workers entertained. Having ping pong, board games, or a pool available for employees can significantly improve productivity while helping relieve stress.
Create an open culture where all employees share the same break room. Additionally, offering free snacks and beverages also makes them feel appreciated and goes to show that you value their time and efforts within the workplace environment.
Other extra options like coffee machines, refrigerators, bookshelves, etc. can further enhance the experience. Lastly, ask workers for input and suggestions to help identify ways to improve your break room.
