If you first say this to your employer their first response may be to just laugh at you. Many employers think that it is a joke to try and make their employees a comfortable break room. In fact most employers will be quick to tell you that if they make their break rooms more comfortable for their employees they will spend all of their time their. What many employers don’t realize is the benefits to making the break room more comfortable. Following are some reasons that you can give to your employer in order to try and persuade them to make your break room more comfortable.
The first reason is that it would definitely make the employees happier. One thing that employers take for granted is the fact that happy employees make good employees. Employees who feel comfortable on their job and are comfortable in their environment will work a lot harder. They will also feel like they are valuable to their employer. Another reason is that everyone needs a break or a moment to get an energy boost. Having a comfortable break room where employees can do exactly this will keep many from burning out in the morning when you are often feeling most sluggish.
Mid morning is usually the time when most begin to really slow down. As you know most people start feeling burnt out after lunch. This is when many employers agree that their employees begin to get a little slower with their work productivity. If however they can take a quick fifteen minute break that will allow them the opportunity. Of course the break room does not have to be anything really fancy, but it should be a room that is large enough for more than one person to sit and have a cup of coffee for a few minutes. Of course you want to avoid making it too large so that all your employees will not suddenly take their breaks at the same time.
It would also be a good opportunity to show your employees that you actually do appreciate their hard work and want them to be able to take their breaks. It has been a proved fact that employees who know that their boss appreciates them tend to work harder and do a better job. This is definitely one perk that all employees deserve and employers should be happy to provide. If you really want to make your employees happy you can ask them on a few ideas and suggestions on how to make the break room more comfortable. Of course you don’t have to do everything that they suggest, but one or two things from the suggestions box will definitely work to keep your employees happy.
