The CoffeKlatsch & Office Morale
  • A good break room gets people out of their chairs, which is extremely important for employees’ health
    • Studies show that remaining seated throughout the day is detrimental to employee health, morale, and overall perception of their career
  • A break room can be one of the contributing reasons that compel employees to stay at their job. It is important that employees want to stay at their job-- literally.
    • Employees who are itching to end their work day will most likely quit, thereby decreasing a company’s employee retention rate
  • Studies show that accommodating a social break rooms can increase employee productivity by 25%
    • A coffee klatsch enables employees to vent and chat with their coworkers
    • Develop a personal relationship with their work space
    • Recharge their mental energy to pursue new tasks more vigorously
provide comfortable seating
Provide Comfortable Seating
  • Again, the klatsch is about taking a “break” from the office.
    • Allowing employees to relax in comfortable office furniture gives them the ability to regain their strength to work harder when they reenter the office
    • Without comfy chairs, employees will most likely exit the office premises for their lunch break, but with comfy seating, employees will feel encouraged to stick around during their lunch break to socialize with the coworkers.

Add Décor

+Adding décor to the break room distinguishes it from the rest of the office

    • Employees view it as a real “break” room – a break from the office space and enjoy the coffee klatsch!
    • Adding décor can help boost employees’ moods, relaxing them from the stress of the office
  • Bring in some potted plants
  • Hang pictures
  • Paint the walls with a pop of color
  • Tip: For seasonal holidays, use scissorsand office paperto cut out snowflakes, flowers, hearts, suns, etc. to hang on the walls
remember the klatsch break is not about the office
Remember: “The Klatsch” break is NOT about the office

Haven’t we emphasized that enough? The break room is not a room filled with office supplies and file cabinets. It’s there to help fortify office culture. Don’t bring work into the break room!

And ask employees about what changes they would like to see in their break room

Take out notebooksand list the things that your employees care about. Guaranteed, your employee retention rate will soar!
