So I work in a fairly large company, most things are provided for stationary, tea bags, coffee etc. However there is a lack of general kitchen items used for lunches etc. Also we lack a sink in our office.
There is a water cooler and kettle that we use for making cups of tea etc, washing up is either not done, done in the toilets or taken home. Thus mostly the first and it never gets done.
What is the requirements of the company to provide a sink? Would it be worth requesting one to be installed in the building or is this too much to expect? Secondly regarding the actual knives forks plates etc... am I best to just bring in my own kitchen items in and keep them in my desk or is the company supposed to provide such facilities thus I should have a word with HR?
Based in UK but also interested in other countries and policies.
