Create a better break room in your Los Angeles office

Your Los Angeles break room is one of the most important spaces in your office.  It’s the place where employees can get away from their work, connect with others, or just relax and enjoy downtime. That’s why it’s important to create a functional and inviting space that works for employees. We’ve dedicated this blog with ideas to help you create your ideal break room.

Keep the break room separate

The break room and the office workspace should be as separate as possible. This will give employees the feeling that the spaces are truly separate and they can relax and focus on reenergizing rather than focusing on work-related issues. If you have a small office, try using room dividers or a wall of plants to create separate spaces. Furthermore, keep in mind that not everyone comes to the break room to socialize. Therefore, you may want to ensure there is a quiet space for employees to practice mindful meditation, read, or just relax.

Yes, the furniture in the break room matters

When designing your break room, make sure you include comfortable furniture. No one likes to sit on a hard plastic or wood chair in the office. Instead, you can furnish the space with a sofa, loveseats, or reclining chairs to create a relaxing environment. In addition to furniture, you may want to consider personalizing the space with company branding, as well as photos.  Images from past employee appreciation events, BBQs, corporate retreats, and team lunches are perfect to include. Promoting a close-knit team environment can also bolster your talent retention and recruiting efforts. Finally, consider adding a TV to share company-related videos, major sporting events, or Netflix shows for employees to enjoy.

Refreshments are important in the break room

Food in the break room is essential. Otherwise, why even have a break room?  Whether employees are enjoying lunch, snacks, or beverages, great refreshments are important considering the amount of time they spend in the office. Let’s look at some refreshments solutions that go beyond Los Angeles vending machines, which may be right for your office.

Micro-Markets

Impress employees with the ultimate break room refreshment solution with a Los Angeles micro-market. It’s an open-air cafe that provides a wide range of fresh food entrees, tasty snacks, and refreshing beverages all customized to your needs. Employees will be able to purchase products at a self-checkout kiosk using credit cards, mobile wallets, or cash. Our team remotely monitors the micro-market to keep it stocked with your favorite products.

Office Coffee

Elevate the coffee break in your office with our Los Angeles office coffee service. We bring you popular national brands of coffee as well as gourmet options. Whether you’re looking for traditional or specialty coffee services, we can help. Premier VendGroup’s coffee brewers come with touchless technology so you can make coffee using your mobile phone.

Office Pantry

This employee perk allows the business to pay for the refreshments and provides them to employees free of charge. We bring grab-and-go refreshments all customized to your office’s needs, including healthy options. A Los Angeles office pantry service will show your employees that they are valued and appreciated. Make your business stand out from others with this unique employee perk.

Add activities & games

To add some fun into the break room, provide a space for games. They don’t have to be over the top. Ping pong table, board games, a foosball table can help your employees connect and create social bonds over fun recreation activities.

To sum up, employees spend 8+ hours a day in the office. Why not make it enjoyable for them by creating a break room space that will help them relax, refuel, and rejuvenate, and come back to work fresh.

Los Angeles Employee Retention | Office Coffee Service | Vending Service | Micro-Market Service | Office Pantry Service

Make refreshments part of the employee retention strategy

Employee retention can be a challenge for many businesses.  In fact, employee turnover is often cited by workforce management as the biggest issue they face. It is costly for a business because it takes time, money, and resources to hire and train new employees. High turnover can also affect the performance of an organization.  Finally, as the availability of skilled employees decreases, it can become difficult to keep sought-after employees. For these reasons, it is important to focus on employee turnover.

Refreshments an important part of  the employee retention strategy for Los Angeles businesses

We’ve come up with a few ideas on how you can use refreshment services to reduce turnover and keep good employees.

A Cafe in the Break Room

Create a cafe in your break room and bring employees together for lunch. A micro-market solution can encourage employees to stay on-site for lunch and engage with other employees. One idea to increase employee engagement is to have the office choose two employees at random each month to have lunch with each other (the company pays for the lunches). It’s a great way to help employees get to know each other and it benefits the company in the long run. Finally, employees will feel more positive about the office environment because they save money in the long run by eating lunch in the break room.

Custom Coffee Services

The business could implement “coffee break Wednesdays” (or whatever day they choose). Employees can get away from their desks to relax, or catch up with others while enjoying delicious coffee or tea.  Through our office coffee service, we can provide custom coffee and tea solutions for your company. Our office coffee service is designed to support employee engagement opportunities one hot beverage at a time. After all, employees who feel a positive connection to the company and other employees are more likely to stay.

Delicious Grab-and-Go Refreshments

Give employees free refreshments! Through our office pantry service, you can show employees that they are valued and appreciated by the company. Employees will feel a positive vibe when they enjoy premium snacks and healthy options such as nuts and fruits in the office. Free refreshments in the office are one of the most cost-effective talent retention tools. This is why it is a popular perk for many top tech companies like Google, Facebook, Apple, and Microsoft.

Modern Vending

It’s a turn-off to employees to enter the break room and see outdated, rusted, cash-only vending machines with products they don’t want. It’s also inconvenient because they may have to leave the office to get refreshments. Our upgraded state-of-the-art vending machines are remotely monitored. Therefore, we know which products your office likes and when to restock them. Plus, our vending machines take credit cards so there is no need to carry cash.
