How Long Should a Lunch Break Be?

Does this surprise you? A recent survey by Right Management found that less than 20 percent of Americans regularly leave their desk for a midday meal. That means only one in every five workers are actually getting a break during their workday, despite what labor laws require.


Does that sound similar to what you’re doing in your company? If so, it might be time to consider how long your lunch breaks really should be and what you’re doing to encourage your employees to get the mental breaks they need throughout the day.
