What are the benefits of comfortable breakout area seating in the office place?

As a business that wishes to grow and evolve, retain employees and attract new talent, it’s now more important than ever to keep up with ever-changing workplace trends. As a result, employee wellness is at the top of the agenda for most companies, with workers having the upper hand and ever-increasing expectations from their workspace.

Traditionally, comfort was never a word associated with the office; no cosy coffee shops adorned with satisfying sofas and soft lighting. However, as businesses shift their focus to a more human-centric work practice, employee comfort is now pivotal.

The optimal office should boast working areas of diversity for employees to perform a mass of tasks. Where workers are inspired to move freely around this cleverly planned and aesthetically cheery space to meet their working needs, whether that be team meetings in a comfortable seated area or a secluded seat on a cosy ergonomic chair.

With style and comfort quickly catching up with functionality in the pecking order of priorities for office furniture, it is becoming increasingly well-known that these breakout spaces have many benefits that result in happy, comfortable employees and a positive, productive workplace.


5 Important Benefits of Break Out Area Seating

1. Show you are employee-centric and help retain and attract top talent

A well-designed breakout area with comfortable seating, stylish tables, and the right lighting will show your team that you truly care about their wellbeing, in and away from their desks. In addition, going beyond expectations with your breakout space can aid staff retention and help to attract new employees.

The Swoosh chair range is a perfect choice for a simple and stylish solution that fits seamlessly into any break-out area. Available in two styles, meeting room or lounge, with several base options to complement any design.


2. Provide additional working spaces

When not used for lunches and breaks, the modern breakout seating area can provide valuable extra workspace for employees away from their desk, incorporating mobile working on tablets, laptops and smartphones. In addition, cushioned sofas, armchairs, and the latest office privacy pods are perfect for providing a space to sit and think away from the desk.

Likewise, breakout high tables are ideal for getting on with work away from the buzz of the office, and a standing desk will help tally up steps, boost energy levels and reduce back pain issues that arise from sitting at a desk for long periods.

3. Provide a place to recharge and stimulate creativity
