    No tea offered to the employees during lunch break

    I am working in a small private firm. After working for the first half of the day, we all feel very tired and thus feel that a cup of tea during lunch break would be surely welcome. But it is very sad indeed that our company is not even offering a cup of tea to its employees during the lunch break and there is not even a canteen at our workplace. We have spoken about it a number of times to our management but without any success. What should we do in such a case?

    Dear Friend,
    If company is not hearing you. So you can make your arrangement.
    Hire a tea supplier in your area. Make a group of people and make a proper schdule as per your requirement. Make monthly plan and spend money from your pocket.
    May be one day mangement will apply all this on their account.
    All The Best

    Hello,

    It is not mandatory for company to provide tea or coffee at launch break.
    Yes, some MNCs have their own rules of treating their own employees but
    there is nothing you can do here. Either you have to drink tea from outside
    or bring tea with you in a flask.

    Bye,

    hello,
    this is not a big issue. if company is not providing you this then you should not react like a kid. you should make a group of your mates and try hanging out for tea/coffee at lunch break. this will relax you from work and also provide you tea/ coffee.

    Hi friends,

    I think this is the simple issue.
    Many companies providing tea offered to the lunch break.
    I think it is not mandatory for company providing tea in a lunch break.
    You can go for out side,drink tea.
    You can bring tea with your flask.
    You can suggested your HR also .

    Thanks!!!

    ALL THE BEST............

    If company is not hearing you in this matter better you should not go further arranging tea during the lunch break depends on your company management and also by your manager if he is kind enough.. As an employee you cann't fight for tea supply it is very small issue and you can initiate dialogue in this matter regarding tea supply with your manager only if he asks you for feedback...

    When management is not kind in enough to provide tea which is a mere thing then it shows how employees are treated surely management si trying to act in different way that is totally condemned for their action.. Yes employees deserve a bit of gratitude from company in form of tea.. You cannot compromise at work irregularities as far as employees small demands are concerned you cannot deny this.. Proving tea is no big deal.. But you have spoken to management with out success why don't you all try to speak to managing director or owner about this small issue try to make a dialogue with him i am sure he would accept your small benefits.. If doesn't relent then its better you go out and have it on your own don't try to ask further on this issue take care company should be ashamed of their actions of being a miser.

    Hi
    In each n avery small or big companies, tea is generally offered to the employees many a times in a day and as you are not provided with any cup of tea then it is a very disgraceful aspect.
    Therefore the best thing that you can do is, collect a contribution of a small amount and you can ask for the tea vendor to supply you the tea at the decided time.
    And accordingly give him the expenses of the tea. If you will do this then there might be an opportunity that your boss would see this and make up his mind to offer the tea to you guys.
    Gud luck

    It's is very sad to get this information that you are working harder for the company and provides your best and contribute a lot to the profit of the company but your company and management does not care about it's employees so this is not the right management of the company because of any company is not being successful in making their employees happy with few necessary things then no one would like to prefer that company on job condition

    Once again you should go to the management of the company and mainly meet the boss and do not go alone because no one will listen to you on this part so you should collect all employees and your colleagues to the manager of the branch and request your manager to allow you a single cup of tea while lunch or after the lunch of office and mention your problem also because you are working for all day and getting tired so you should mention everything to your sir so they may allow you for the tea and if they say that you can go outside of the office for tea then you should not accept because this will waste your and time of the company that may effect the completion of work but your request and candid behavior may provide you this facility in the company

    Each one will have to be strict on their part because may be that manager directly send you all back and do not listen anything so you have to stay their until your manager does not accept this argument and when they allow and say thank you very much and come back to your office

    All the best

    hello,
    its bad situation and you should demand for it rather than sitting quietely.
    if they dint respond then its better you ask them to get tea from outside and the payment will be given by you.
    the first one may be difficult as you said they dint provide and the second one will be good according to my view.ask a chai near your office and ask him to bribg tea at your lunch break.
    thank you..............

    Hi, I understand that all of us have certain expectations from the organisation that we work for. But, dear, instead of worrying about such petty issues, focus on your work because this is the best time to groom your skills and move up the ladder of success. As far as tea is concerned, either carry your own snacks and tea or talk to a tea vendor nearby to come and serve you a cup of tea every day. May be when you see a suitable opportunity, the you can request your boss or the HR for making such arrangements in the company premises but do not panic over such small issues... Thanks
