By providing employees with a breakroom featuring a refreshing atmosphere, comfortable seating options, and complimentary supplies, they will return to work with a positive attitude. This positivity translates into improved workplace morale which then has been proven to increase overall productivity. Improving the breakroom is a cost-effective way to increase overall employee satisfaction. And for many, this may be the crucial time to get to know their coworkers better outside of the conference room. Having a good variety of seating options, whether it be comfy couches, or an ergonomic chair, can help break up the pace for break time. The best employee breakrooms provide flexibility by having a layout that allows for big groups of workers to socialize, or, if you need some time alone, sufficient space to breathe. Here are five popular breakroom options that can go a long way to motivate your fellow employees and energize them for the rest of the day’s tasks.
