Create attractive cafeterias and enticing break areas with MAY large parasols
There’s a number of action areas that consistently challenge successful companies: Employee retention, increasing motivation, and boosting productivity. Any number of studies* provide the evidence, and different ‘new work’ concepts address it: A decisive aspect when it comes to increasing employee motivation and employee retention is found in promoting employees’ sense of well-being at the workplace.
This also includes adding break areas and quiet zones to the workplace environment, which can be used by employees to both relax and recharge, and to talk to each other about work informally. Those who have the option of doing so would be best to provide these facilities in the fresh air as well. Equipped with large parasols from MAY, these outdoor areas – which may, for example, be an extension of your cafeteria or canteen – will become popular spots with a welcoming atmosphere. The ideal place for new input and fresh energy – for motivation and productivity.

A remote control is used for operation, or alternatively the building automation system already installed in your company’s building (compatible with e.g. KNX, Loxone, Somfy, Gira, Rademacher, Elero and others). When fitted with a wind sensor, the parasol automatically closes when the wind picks up.
- The poles used for the models SCHATTELLO and ALBATROS are telescopic: They provide plenty of ground clearance, meaning that tables and chairs won’t have to be cleared to one side before closing the parasol.
