A Little TV Viewing At Work Can Go A Long Way

Apr 5, 2008
I am a manager of a leading firm, I realise the need to keep moral up. I know my employees will be more productive if they stay happy. This is why I am always taking suggestions for improvements in the office.

I have to admit that I can't take all the suggestions and make them happen. However, I do everything in my power to negotiate or find ways to make a condition better. Lately, one of the greatest complaints has been with our break room.

Right now, we have a small room with a refrigerator, microwave, a sink and some tables and chairs. We also have a small tv for the employees to watch during lunch. The employees have been whining about the microwave and icebox that are old and do not operate very well.

Apparently, some of the employee's lunches has gone bad due to the refrigerator's temperature control being off. I called the finance department and asked what we could do about this condition. They informed me we did have some money in the financial budget to allow me to buy a few things for the break room.

I started to search around Home Depot and Best Buy for a new icebox and microwave. I ended up going to Wal-Mart for the microwave because I knew I could get the best deal. Then I went to Sears for the new icebox. I received such a great deal on both items that I had a lot of money left over.

Before I left Sears, I browsed the HDTV area. I was surprised at how low the prices were for the smaller HDTVs available. I instantly thought how much my employees would love to have an HDTV as part of their break area.

However, then I remembered you needed a cable or satellite provider to provide you with the service for the high quality channels. I was talking to the sales lady and he educated me that I could buy an antenna that would give me the channels I was wondering about without a monthly cost.

I went home, checked into the antenna, and found out it also didn't cost much to purchase. I found an antenna for indoor use, which would be perfect for our office. I bought the antenna and then went to Sears to buy the HDTV.

I could hardly wait for my employees to see the remodeling job in the break room. As soon as everything arrived, I asked the delivery guys to arrive after hours so no one would see it. After they put everything where it belonged, the HDTV was perfect in making the room complete.

When my employees came in that Monday, they just about fell over when they saw the remodeling job. My employees are happy and so much more committed to their jobs now... so I am a really content!
