Office employees spend the majority of their time sitting in front of a computer screen. Because of this, breakout areas have become increasingly visible in most work spaces. A breakout area is a space open to employees that is separate from their usual working station. It is a place where employees can relax, eat their lunch and hold informal meetings. It plays a significant role in improving the well-being of employees, which allows them to be more creative and productive.

A breakout area in the office provides employees a place to stay should they opt for a much-needed break from their desks. Providing employees an opportunity to have a time-out can be hugely beneficial to the overall quality of work being undertaken throughout the day. It also helps to decrease stress levels and the feeling of being burnt out, creating a happier environment for everyone. Additionally, having a relaxed environment can allow creative ideas to flow. Creating a dedicated space to collaborate ideas can benefit employees morale and productivity.

A breakout area does not need to be lavish, it can simply be a few comfortable chairs in a corner of the office, if there is more room available a space for games can be included. This will help increase staff productivity and improve their overall performance on a daily basis as they will feel more refreshed and relaxed.
