In my experience, there are two kinds of office environments: the office where tissues and kitchen supplies are considered standard office supplies and the office where if you have a cold or want to eat at the office you’d best bring your supplies.
On the one hand, not supplying tissues and kitchen ware can save a company hundreds, if not thousands of dollars per year.
On the other, employees can easily discern that their happiness and comfort at the office aren’t worth a box of tissues.
I really appreciate an employer who makes an effort to keep their employees comfortable at the office. A quick informal Twitter poll indicated that about 50 percent of employes provide at least tissues.
Does your employer provide tissues or kitchen supplies?
