Essentials to Creating an Employee Breakroom Oasis
Do you want your employees to perform at their best? The answer is probably, “absolutely!”
Breakrooms become forgotten rooms of the company. They usually have a couch or two, a couple of tables with chairs, a refrigerator, a microwave, and maybe a TV. Maybe.
These breakrooms are generally pretty dull. They’re not living up to their full potential. One of the things potential employees look at is what sort of environment their lunch and break is going to be in.
There’s a reason why companies such as Google brag about their break rooms and work culture as a whole. It’s a fun place to work and even a fun place to relax. Google keeps their employees entertained and happy.
They don’t have to be the only companies that do this, however. You, too, can create an awesome space for your employees to unwind for a bit.
If you’re not sure how, here are some ideas to make your employee breakroom an inviting space to get away.
1. Change the Environment
When constructing your employee breakroom, consider painting the walls a different color and installing a different color of carpet (or flooring all together).
If you paint the walls a different color from the rest of your office, you’re creating a space in which your employees can temporarily unwind and destress. When this happens, your employees can go back to work feeling more energized.
2. Include Free Coffee
The world is full of coffee addicts.Some swear it’s what helps wake them up in the morning and gets them through the day. Give them some free coffee in the breakroom to keep your employees happy, motivated and productive.
For an added bonus, include free water bottles or water filter as well to keep your employees hydrated throughout their work day.
