A new study by the workplace hygiene brand Tork reveals that employees are more productive and engaged when they get an hour for lunch each day.
Business coach Julie Melillo says, “You need to rest your body and mind. Same way when you go to the gym and are working out your muscles. You have to rest your mind, it’s a muscle too so you can be more productive and efficient. Just giving that one-hour break, your employee is going to be happier, they’re going to be more productive and be able to get more done throughout the day. You need to maintain your automobile, you need to maintain your employees. If you don’t give them what they need, they’re going to break down and that’s going to be a lot more expensive.”
