Supplying your employees with water is something that is often overlooked, perhaps thinking that employees should be responsible for their own supply of drinks at work. However, unbeknown to many employers, keeping your staff hydrated can have huge benefits for your company.
A hydrated employee is more likely to be focused with a high morale and better mental and physical efficiency. It is also said that keeping your employees properly hydrated will mean they have less sick and absence days, something that costs the UK thousands every year. Make your business stand out from the crowd by being able to boast that your company has the best employees with the least sick days and absences.
Not only does it reflect well in the employee’s behaviour, but it also reflects well on you as an employer and also gives off a good impression to visitors, clients or customers. Having a water cooler in your reception area to welcome visitors makes you look professional; it also makes sure that your visitor is catered for without having to worry about it. It also eradicates any awkward situations where the visitor may have to go and ask for a drink.
First impressions of your business are extremely important, as it will give a lasting impression and something that your visitor will remember. Make a positive impression by catering properly for your visitor and making them as comfortable and catered for as possible.
Looking professional means that you are already half way there in creating a great impression to your visitor may it be a client or perhaps an investor.
A constant water supply will also have a knock on effect with your employees- a hydrated employee will be happier and have enough energy to be enthusiastic about working- which means you are creating the right impression of your business.
Water cooler users can vary from hotels and hospitality businesses to call centres, colleges, universities, hospitals, offices and dealerships. Whatever type of business or organisation you are, a water cooler will suit you. Even if you don’t see your staff drinking much water at work, the presence of a water cooler in the office will automatically encourage people to use it and remind your employees to be hydrated.
