I have worked in an office for quite a while, now, and there is one thing that I can say without any hesitation: break rooms are incredibly important. Sure, you want your workers to stay focused, and you do not want them to be leaving their desks every ten minutes for another break. That, however, does not mean that you should skimp when it comes to providing your workers with a few luxury accommodations. IF you have never thought about what goes into a great break room, then I would suggest that you read through this article carefully, taking notes whenever necessary. No doubt, you are going to learn something new today.
If your workers have to sit down all day long, then you are going to want to provide them with some kind of venue for exercise in your break room. Believe it or not, I have seen break rooms that are fully equipped with workout equipment, and we are not talking about the cheap stuff, here. Treadmills are a great thing to have in your break room, as are stair climbers. And of course, you are not simply providing these things out of the goodness of your own heart. Research shows that moderate exercise can tremendously improve your workers efficiency and morale. That is right, reader. You are going to be able to expect a return on this investment that you are making, here.
Of course, there are other things that you should consider when you are putting together your break room. Some of the best break rooms that I have seem have come equipped with video game stations, believe it or not. And really, I think that this is a really good idea. IF there is one thing that can be said about stress, it is that getting your mind off of what is bothering you can entirely kill it. Thus, allowing your workers to play a few minutes worth of video games when they are getting stressed out is going to help them enormously. Once they clear away a little bit of that stress, they are going to be ready and willing to dive back into their work with double the energy. IF you do not believe me, simply try this out for a week or so. IF you do not see any improvements in efficiency and morale, then I will be genuinely surprised.
And who could forget about food? One of the best things that you can do for your workers is be sure that they are never going hungry. While you can stick a few snack machines in your break room, you can also take things a step further and actually provide your workers with some food. This is going to cost you a bit more money, but man oh man, is it going to keep your workers nice and happy. Truly, food is the key to the hearts of your workers, reader.
As you can see, there is not that much that goes into making a great break room. You simply have to be sure that you are giving people the things that they need to stay happy, and you are going to find that your break room becomes a powerful motivation tool. And of course, you will be thought of as one of the coolest bosses in the world.
