Do you make the effort to take a 30-60 minute lunch break most days? If so, what do you do during this time to unwind, let off steam or pass the time?
Surveys have suggested that as few as 30% of UK employees regularly take a lunch break, while more than a third of workers feel pressured to work through their lunch breaks. In fact, according to health provider BUPA, “UK companies are losing close to £50million a day in lost productivity as workers fail to take a lunch break”.
Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be working with wellbeing, lifestyle, culture and food bloggers who live and work in London to launch the Flexioffices campaign to take back the lunch break – whether it’s 30 minutes or a full hour – as time to socialise, revitalise and relax ready for the afternoon!
