The Essentials: Breakroom Supply Checklist
Posted By: In: Office Updates, 0 Comments

Your office’s breakroom should be the place where employees can detach themselves from work, enjoy their lunch, and recharge their batteries. Let’s not forget that this is where many workers find inspiration with other co-workers. Make sure to have all your breakroom supplies that you need. A fully stocked and comfortable breakroom will keep your employees focused and happy.

Break it Off

Have a dedicated area to serve as a breakroom. This should allow for those on break to truly detach and relax. Since many of us do not take the recommended five-minute break every thirty minutes, having a place to chill out is essential to having a productive office.

Caffeine Fix

While all offices cannot offer catered meals each day like Google, giving complimentary coffee will not only allow employees to feel appreciated but as an owner, you can save money. Instead of having employees leave the office for 30 minutes for their coffee fix and lose focus, offer free coffee in your breakroom. The amount of money that your company spends on office coffee services is minimal compared to amount that you could lose from those leaving the office. Remember, your company can always make more money but focus and productivity are priceless.

Food For Thought

Another way to show appreciation for those long hours your team puts in is to offer complimentary snacks. In our office in Galesburg, we asked our employees what kind of snacks they would like offered in the breakroom. You may be surprised to find out that the majority vote was for healthy snacks. Don’t forget a microwave, fridge, and trash receptacle. These are basic conveniences that you need so employees can bring lunch and dispose of it properly.
