Is your day ruined unless you enjoy a hot cup of coffee in the morning? It could be the same for your employees. Provide hot coffee and tea throughout the day, as well as bottles of cold water or access to a water cooler. If your budget allows, also offer cold sodas, juices, and other beverages. Don't forget the cups!
Encourage your employees to get away from their desks during lunch and breaks. Set up comfortable tables and chairs. Consider picnic–style tables that could be moved outside during good weather.
Your employees won't enjoy the breakroom unless it's clean. Mop the floor, empty the trash, wipe off the tables, and clean out the sink at the end of everyday or more frequently if needed. Clean out the refrigerator at least once a week.
There's nothing more unappealing than overflowing, piled–up garbage bins. Don't forget to set up recycling bins as well for cans, plastics, glass, and paper. (Learn more about setting up an office recycling program.)
You never know when someone may get cut or have a pounding headache. Be prepared. Plus, don't forget to hang the workplace safety posters required by state law.
Help your employees keep up with what's going on in the world. If you're afraid that a television will cause long lunches or become too noisy, establish a company policy regarding the television. For example, decide the television can only be on from 12 to 2 when most people take lunch. As for the volume, post a sign asking that people not adjust it, as your office is a place of business.
