Simple Changes #26

Encourage your employees to take breaks and eat away from their desk



The average British worker takes just 34 minutes for their lunch break, with more than half skipping their lunch break altogether. We know that creativity and innovation happen when people change their environment, especially when they expose themselves to the natural environment. Eating away from your desk helps to create a sense of community, with people taking the time to get to know their colleagues informally. Studies also show an increase in productivity and the physical break from your desk helps your mind and body rest.
