Create an Engaging Lunch Room or Break Space
Increase company morale and employee engagement by improving your company’s break rooms. Here are some ideas to make your break room a more relaxing and engaging space!
1. But first, coffee! Set up a coffee station for your employees to keep them energized throughout the day. Consider company mugs, special napkins and fresh flowers in vases. Little touches can go a long way!
2. Comfortable Seating. Ensure that every employee has a place to sit down during the break. Set up seating for both eating and resting, such as couches or lounge chairs.
3. Schedule regular janitorial cleaning. Your lunch room and break spaces should be as spotless as possible! Our corporate house-keeping team provides proven, reliable, janitorial and cleaning services, and operates 24/7 to provide the facility services you need when you need them—including emergency services. Facility Plus would be honoured to help you create an environment that your employees thrive in! Learn more here.
Get Organized Behind-the-Scenes
Having a well-organized workplace can lead to increased productivity for your team. The warehouses and storage rooms of your facility are most likely some of the hardest working places of your business, but may be the least likely to be cleaned and organized on a regular basis. Here’s a helpful checklist!
1. High dusting and complete warehouse cleaning. Book our Facility Plus expertly trained technical staff to ensure that dust, dirt and grease are removed from your warehouses, even from tight and hard-to-get-at locations. This will help you maintain a healthy and safe work environment for your staff, customers and products. Learn more here.
2. Replacing lights. Ensure that your warehouse is properly lit, so that everyone can find what they’re looking for! Facility Plus is working-at-heights certified and can take care of any lighting that needs fixing or replacing. We also offer removal, disposal and recycling of all of your commercial light bulbs, and we follow the correct, safe and environmentally friendly guidelines for each Canadian province.
3. Recycling and garbage disposal. As you clean and organize your warehouses or storage spaces to create a more efficient environment – garbage and recycling can start to pile up. Facility Plus has all of the proper equipment to help you with your junk removal and recycling needs.
