CORPORATE QUIET ROOM

PEOPLE'S
UNITED BANK
QUIET ROOM

People’s United Bank creates
a "Quiet Room," part of a
health and wellness initiative
to encourage the well-being
of employees.


Objective

Provide an environment
where Call Center employees
can temporarily relax and retreat
from job-induced stress. The “Quiet
Room” was subsequently renamed “Cozy Corner” based on the results
of an employee naming contest.

Concept

The Quiet Room is an enclosed
space, distanced from main traffic
areas, where employees can take
a moment during the working day
to relax, have a break, meditate,
pray or simply ‘take stock’ without
the distractions of office life and
without interrupting the operation
of the organization.

Solution

Create a beautiful, tranquil space
to serve as a temporary sanctuary
where employees can take a moment away from the daily stresses of the fast-paced, high-tech world. Work to incorporate contemporary furnishings,
earth tone colors and abstract
art to support this effort.

Outcome

With clear guidelines on design
and use, managers and employees
understand the purpose of the space. The "Quiet Room" has become a significant company asset. It is a visible, major investment in staff well-being
and a key resource for productivity and staff retention.
