How do you approach drinks throughout the day? Do you scrabble to get a quick round of tea and coffees in that bit of time just before meetings start? Do you typically work in one of those quiet offices where everyone has their head permanently stuck in their computers where the most words spoken are when someone offers a round of drinks? Or is it a proper full on event of tea and coffee drinking, savouring the moment and using it as a chance to put the world to rights? After all, what can't be sorted out over a cup of tea?
More importantly, are biscuits available and even more importantly than that - what are the favourites?
I was reading an amusing article on Britain's Favourite workplace biscuits which solves the issue once and for all. In a bid to put some business justification behind tea and biscuits it links nicely to a podcast I was listening to the other day on How to Generate Brilliant Ideas. In there, there was a really useful reminder about how when you're in a more relaxed environment your brain is equipped to think creatively.
And if that's not enough, isn't it just a great way to take time out, relax for a moment and socialise a little more with those you work with.
So let's not underestimate the power of tea and biscuits. Let's make this an event. And for anyone that chooses to place Jammie Dodgers at the bottom of their list of preferences like this poll suggests, please feel free to donate them to us here at the DPG office marking the package very clearly with Ady Howes, Digital Learning Specialist!
