Take a good look at your employee break room (or space). Is it past due for a good cleaning, decluttering, painting, and/or organizing? Might not seem like an important space to give attention to but it is! Why? Because you and your employees deserve to take a break (& eat) in a nice, relaxing, and clean space.
Tips and Ideas to Spruce up the Lunch/Break Room/Lounge
Declutter & Organize the countertops, table, shelves, cabinets, and drawers.
Décor – add some nice pictures to the walls and freshen up the paint
Add some Extras – condiments, snacks, drinks, dishes/silverware, storage containers,
Charging stations for electronic devices, etc.
Bookshelf – add a bookshelf and some books to read during the breaks.
Baskets & Hooks – If this area also stores employees’ clothes, jackets, shoes, and purses/bags be sure to have labeled baskets to store personal items and hooks to hang coats.
Messaging Center – Hang a whiteboard or corkboard to share team news/messages, office happenings, team meeting dates and agenda, employee work anniversaries, etc.
TV Monitor & Computer – Install a large TV monitor for team meetings and continuing education courses. (A webcam/microphone is helpful too.)
Cleanliness Reminders for the team – Be kind & thoughtful – do your own dishes, wipe up spills/crumbs, refill the paper towel dispenser, don’t leave expired food in the fridge, and wipe down the microwave, or toaster oven after each use.
Beverage Containers – Rather than having unsightly, random water bottles, coffee mugs, and carry-out drink containers around the office – invest in some nice water bottles and coffee mugs imprinted with your office name for the team to use at the office.
