Your employees need to take a break occasionally during the duration of his or her daily work. It is best to introduce breaks points or recreation areas in some parts of your office space. Put some natural plants or install a small little koi fountain in a corner of your office; or you can also design a rooftop garden facilities for the office if it has ample space for it. These break points can help your employees to feel relaxed during “stressful” moments and then increase their productivity and working speed when they go back to their work.
