Employee break rooms are essential to your employee experience. Are you making the most of them?

Your company break room is a place for employees to recharge, but it can – and should – be much more. Great employee lounges drive success in both corporate offices and non-desk employee workplaces like hospitals, warehouses and supermarkets. With the right approach, employee break rooms boost productivity, enhance corporate culture and promote safety.

22% of non-desk workforce employees feel their job is important to the company and its vision.

Improving this number can be as simple as sharing a thank you message or celebrating a work anniversary. And in high pressure staff environments like healthcare facilities during COVID-19 or fulfillment centers and manufacturing plants in high-volume seasons, thanking employees for their work can prevent burnout.

2. Reinforce safety training & share important alerts.

Preventing accidents requires ongoing communication in a format that gets noticed. Yet, there is so much clutter on email and internal messaging systems that important announcements often remain unread by staff. Similarly, static OSHA notices can fade into the background of daily routine for shift workers.

With break room TV screens, you can share dynamic content that reinforces best practices and safety rules to a captive audience. Grab attention with a full playlist of images and videos, so employees see something new every time they’re on break. 

Enplug’s safety content library and templates let you share compliance information with images and text that change automatically in your warehouse break room. You can also override default content with high-priority alerts from a Common Alert Protocol (CAP) system to keep your workers aware of emergencies.

5. Show entertainment content

You want your employees to work hard when they are on the job, and the best way to improve productivity is to ensure they have a moment to relax. Use the Enplug Video and YouTube Apps to share fun videos or the Social Media Collage App to display pre-approved memes and visuals. With the Webpage App you even have the ability to show any website that’s relevant and entertaining.
