Abstract
Work is an important part of the lives of humans, fulfilling several functions; it establishes possibilities to interaction and to feeling as belonging to a context, it gives structure to time and space, creates common goals and it leads to a general well-being in individuals. For the well-being of employees it is essential with recuperation in a pleasant environment where you under relaxing and informal forms have a chance to interact with colleagues.

Work is an important part of the lives of humans, fulfilling several functions; it establishes possibilities to interaction and to feeling as belonging to a context, it gives structure to time and space, creates common goals and it leads to a general well-being in individuals. For the well-being of employees it is essential with recuperation in a pleasant environment where you under relaxing and informal forms have a chance to interact with colleagues. The aim of this study was to investigate to which extent the employees of Tetra Pak Packaging Material AB at Tetra Pak in Lund experience that the informal communication during the coffee-break contributes to their well-being. The aim was also to distinguish if this potential well-being effects how the employees experience how work in general makes them feel. The hypothesis of the study is that the coffee-break effects the well-being in a positive way, and that it has a positive effect on how work in general makes the employees feel. A questionnaire on the coffee-break and a well-being scale were used. The results show that the employees consider that the coffee-break to a large extent contributes to their well-being, and that work gives them positive feelings often/most of the time. No significant differences depending on gender, age and work-form were found. No significant correlations were found between these background variables and respective scale. When correlating the questionnaire with the well-being scale no significant correlation was found. This means that the well-being which is created by the coffee-break in the investigated workplace can not be considered to establish how the employees experience that work contributes to their well-being.
