Human beings are inherently social beings. For the most part we enjoy being around people, talking with them, watching them, sharing ideas and experiences with them. Among other things, work gives us the opportunity for adult interaction.

It is common to appreciate work because work provides income and opportunity for advancement. One thing people do not commonly realize is a perk of employment is the opportunity to interact with other adults. It is increasingly common for people to telecommute or work at home. It is a wonderful thing to work at home, to have the freedom to set one’s own hours, to customize your work area and to have an atmosphere with only the distractions you set for yourself. However, one thing that working at home does not provide in abundance is the ability to have adult interaction.

Most people have gone by a Starbucks store and seen it full of people on their laptop computers, cell phone and deep into file folders. Many of these people are using Starbucks as a satellite office. People who work in traditional offices may wonder why anyone would choose to work at Starbuck rather than the office or at home. Those who work at home understand and realize that working at your home office offers very little opportunity for adult interaction. It is nice to work at home in a comfortable spot in pajamas. However, after a while, the thrill leaves and the desire for adult interaction develops.  At Starbucks, a worker is able to have some of the best parts of working in a traditional office: the ability to get up and dressed to go out to work, interaction with other adults, pressure to work.

At traditional places of employment, many employees take a lunch break and use that time to interact with other adults. Workplace cafeterias are often loud, happy places that are full of the noises and sounds of adults interacting with one another in a social manner. For some workers, at some jobs it is the interaction at lunchtime that makes an otherwise bad job bearable. It is something to be thankful to have, the ability to interact with other adults during a lunch break.

Working at a traditional workplace permits interaction with adults throughout the day and that ability to interact is a wonderful thing. So, the question for you this wonderful day is, do you appreciate the opportunity for adult interaction your job provides?
