How great is the kitchen at your office?

If your answer to this question is anything but awesome, you should rethink your game plan. Not only does a kitchen provide a nice amenity for employees, but it also offers tremendous value to the bottom line of your company. Well-equipped kitchens keep employees around during breaks and lunches. Employees who eat at work communicate better. And better communication drives performance. Besides, a nice office kitchen is just one more incentive for employees to start coming back into the office, right?

Community and communication drives performance

A communication survey and study shows that companies that are effective communicators perform better at a rate of a 47% higher return to shareholders over a five-year period. One reason for this can be because companies that communicate better with their employees also often leads to employees communicating better with clients and customers. While there are many ways you can get your employees to communicate better, one way is by giving them the opportunity to interact more.

Many co-working spaces and flexible office space locations offer amenities such as office kitchens and coffee bars as part of a standard membership. Some even go above and beyond by offering working cafés along with baristas.

A great office kitchen may even lead to better employee retention!
