Posted by on
In order to have a fun fun and enjoyable office, keeping your employees happy is key.
Your employees shouldn't dread coming into work each day, and there are a wide variety of ways you can make your office a better place for your employees.
From games to general items to make it a more relaxing and "home-away-from-home" atmosphere, here are just a few of the ways you can take your office from okay to great.
Having a Fridge
Whether it is a full size fridge in the office kitchen or even a mini fridge in the break room, having a place for your employees to store their food and drinks will make them much happier.
By providing a way for your employees to bring in their lunch on a regular basis, you can help make them happier by helping them save money and bring in some of their favorite food that can last a while.
Google has become famous for the "nap pod" and providing these areas for their employees to get a power nap in to improve their work performance and overall satisfaction with their job.
This feature has apparently led to a trend across many employers around the world providing designated napping times for their employees and encouraging them to partake in these snooze sessions for 10 to 20 minutes a day to help revitalize them for the afternoon.
Relaxing Break Rooms
While having a break room with some tables and chairs where your employees can eat lunch is a great thing to have, providing them with a fun area where they can really unwind can boost their overall satisfaction and lead to higher quality work.
If you have to means to make it happen, consider turning a spare room in your office into a more exciting break room.
Throw in a couch or some lounging chairs in these rooms, maybe even a bean bag or two.
A ping pong table or television with video games or Netflix are two great additions to any break room to let your employees take their minds off of work for a few minutes during the day to help them relax and destress if needed.
Want to see your employees interacting with each other more or just feel like getting those competitive juices flowing?
One of the best ways to do both of these things is having some fun group games available in the office.
From ping pong, to an office basketball hoop, there are a wide variety of different games you can provide to your employees to give them a fun way to relax for a few minutes.
If you have the space, we have found that corn hole is a great game to get your employees going head to head for some exciting competition that is sure to create plenty of fun throughout the office.
