Employees spend a considerable amount of time at work. Often, they spend more of their waking hours in the office than in their own homes. That means they also spend more time with their work family during the week than with their families at home. This is why it’s critically important to create a culture of consideration among your employees. How can you create a peaceful work environment that lends itself to consideration? How can you make it easier for your employees to easily access what they need without doing so at the expense of their work neighbor?
Everyone has experienced that one coworker who constantly brings smelly foods to work for lunch. Heating up their day-old fish filet brings a smell into your workspace that is enough to distract you from the tasks you need to complete. What about your pregnant coworker who excuses herself due to the unwanted smell of her neighbor’s left-over broccoli? There are so many scenarios that workers experience on the job that keep them from completing their work. The inconsideration of other coworkers being one of them. Sometimes, that inconsideration isn’t inconsideration at all, but a lack of other options.
To cut down on lunch-time distractions, one easy solution is providing a designated space for dining. Ideally, this space would be filled with comfortable seating and accommodations that incentivize employees to stay and eat. The convenience of microwaves, refrigerators, and even vending machines or micro markets provide all employees need during lunch and other breaks.
