HOW YOUR COMPANY'S BREAK ROOM AFFECTS EMPLOYEE MORALE
Simply put, your staff is the backbone of your company. Yet, if you fail to make them feel respected as such, you are likely to end up losing them. In fact, even worse you may end up stuck with a workforce that feels unappreciated and therefore under performs.
Nothing can sink a Houston business faster than faculty that is just getting by with doing the bare minimum. The good news is that there are plenty of ways in which you can make your workers feel valued, and not all of them are about bonuses.
Give Them A Break
Quite literally, your employees deserve a break but, even more importantly, they deserve a quality space to enjoy that break. You would be amazed at the difference in performance you can see from your staff, just by giving them a place to get away from their job, even while still at work. If your current space is too small, too bland or just all around rundown, it’s beyond time to make a change.
Keep it calming. Open, airy, plenty of light and subdued colors help create a soothing space. This is especially vital for any workplace with a high stress rate. In fact, in high pressure work environments it is optimal to also provide a quiet room or zen space. It is a good way to offer a place to getaway and disconnect from employment stressors. Improved staff performance results speak for themselves!
Of course, what gets anyone going better than caffeine? Make sure that your break area includes a way to provide coffee, and the better the quality the more valued your employees will feel. If possible, upgrade to include a cappuccino and espresso machine.
Make it festive, based on the season and holiday. Seeing the same old break room day after day can get monotonous. It can feel like space that has gone forgotten. Why not celebrate summer or the 4th of July – or even Cinco de Mayo for that matter?
Make it fun! What better way to de-stress from work than to forget about work, at least for a few minutes at a a time? Offer an air hockey or foosball table, card games or even a gaming system, to help liven things up a bit.
While there are plenty of other ideas you could put to good use, this should at least get your creative juices flowing.
