Often, as part of an office refurbishment, fit-out or relocation project, there are often requirements to replace or install Tea Points – in other words kitchen-type facilities for offices.
They are called 'Tea Points' rather than 'Kitchens' for legal reasons in terms of planning and building control!
Keeping your people happy is one of the most difficult things that we experience when running a business as we are sure you know!
Considering their requirements in terms of tea point and breakout areas for lunch, meetings and other aspects is often overlooked. A chilled out area with soft seating can be very beneficial – you can even consider giving them something fun, like table football, video games or even something more indulgent!
Modern technology means you don't need to sit at a desk to produce a report, talk to a colleague overseas or research a new idea. Break out areas foster creativity by encouraging a more relaxed working style, facilitating communication and promoting networking.
Take inspiration from world-leaders in modern, fun office design such as Google and Amazon who take these things to a new level with innovative design, quirky themes and interesting furniture.
