Tork Takes Back the Lunch Break!

Tork is on a mission to Take Back the Lunch Break. Why? According to Gallup, only one in three employees are engaged at work. Because engagement impacts productivity, happiness and job satisfaction, it’s time employees and employers across North America stepped up to the plate – the lunch plate that is.

  • New Research

    Tork, an Essity brand*, conducted a North American study of employees in various workplaces, which shows that those who take lunch breaks are more likely to feel efficient at work and satisfied with their jobs. And nearly all (93 percent) of North American bosses think employees should be encouraged to take a lunch break. 

    This is why we created the “Take Back the Lunch Break” campaign – to help improve workplace morale, satisfaction, and productivity across North America.

In today’s 24/7 work culture, the employee lunch break is in decline – which means fewer customers going to restaurants. And yet, according to recent research conducted by Tork, employees who take a lunch break score higher on a wide range of engagement metrics, including job satisfaction and productivity. Here are some lunch break benefits by the numbers. Our idea is simple: with more workers taking their lunch break, we can improve workplaces and worker happiness – all while driving customers back through your doors.
