Whether you are trying to ease the transition from telework back to the office or revitalize your break space to keep your workforce engaged, a comfortable and inviting breakroom is one of the best ways to foster a sense of community while increasing productivity among employees.
Investing in revitalizing your breakroom is a quick and easy way to:
The best thing about upgrading your breakroom? It won’t break the bank. Incorporating simple, inexpensive details like comfortable seating, healthy snacks, and sunlight will create a breakroom that employees will enjoy.
It’s no surprise that a coffee maker might just be the most used appliance in any office. Adding a fully stocked coffee station will have an immediate impact on your office. After all, how much work are you going to get done waiting in line at Starbucks? Employees will enjoy longer breaks due to closer proximity to a cup of joe, and your business will reap the benefits of increased productivity and high morale.
Coffee is good for a morning eye opener or an afternoon pick-me-up, but for all-day energy we must turn wholesome snacks, treats, and meal substitutes. Our Fresh & Frozen Food & Beverages Service will keep your breakroom full of healthy, fast, and single serve options for your employees. From yogurt and bagels to fresh fruit and pizza, we have options for every stomach.
There are a few no-brainers when it comes to breakroom appliances. To even be considered a breakroom you’ll need:
But what can we add to your breakroom to take it to the next level? Consider these appliances and devices to offer your employees increased comfort and connectivity:
Science tells us that incorporating natural light and living plants into the workplace has been shown to increase energy levels and productivity, while reducing stress like eye strain, and promoting feelings of well-being.
Incorporating plants into a breakroom space can be as simple as including a small number of house plants, or as advanced as creating an immersive plant display such as a succulent garden or planter system. Not only will they elevate your space and offer a calming atmosphere, but houseplants have been proven to act as natural air purifiers, increasing air quality in indoor spaces, while eliminating allergens, odors, even up to 78% of airborne mold.
Once you’ve built your perfect breakroom…use it! After hours potlucks, karaoke nights, movie screenings, and birthday parties are all great ways of building bonds with your team while creating a positive association with the workplace. Encourage employees to take the lead by allowing them to schedule and organize their own celebrations and activities, and before you know it, your new breakroom will be the beating heart of your office.
