Who would have thought in a nation full of tea lovers, that the use of coffee in businesses is growing? The launch of coffee pod machines in recent years has played a significant part in the declining sales of kettles.
For many of us, coffee is a magic potion that stimulates, energises and increases our concentration. How many times have you heard someone say they can’t get going in the morning without their caffeine fix?
If you’re a coffee drinker, you will know there are ‘right’ times of the day to grab a cup. Many of us stop off on our way to work, and then leave the office mid-morning or after lunch in search of a caffeine-fix to combat the post–lunch energy slump.
Wouldn’t it be better if you could just walk to the other side of the office and treat yourself to a motivating, tasty cup of coffee anytime you wanted?
Which leads us to ask….
Do coffee and productivity in the office go hand in hand?
Put simply, Yes! According to an article published by The Huffington Post, In a report, 46 percent of America’s workforce say coffee helps them stay productive at work. In another survey, 20 percent of people who drink coffee say it helps them socialize.
There’s a reason why big companies like Google offer free workplace coffee to all employees - 61% of employees feel that their employer cares about their well-being if they provide good hot beverage options. When office coffee is not provided, 22% of employees will leave the office for coffee or tea, meaning that the cost of providing hot drinks in the office is more than offset by productivity savings.
And it’s not just about the coffee itself. Coffee breaks re-energise employees and allow them to interact, often leading to increased morale, collaboration and performance. Companies who have a dedicated drinks area for employees to congregate are reaping the benefits.
If you’re looking to get your employers up from their desk, and into an area that can deliver them café quality drinks without leaving the office, having a good quality coffee machine is the start of the process.
