New Studies Show How to Improve Productivity in the Office

Some people can't get going in the morning without a nice, hot cup of coffee. For some this comes from the home, for others at a stop on the way to work, but for some lucky employees, this lovely cup of joy comes directly from their office.

Providing employees with quality coffee and plenty of hydrating water can have some pretty awesome effects on the overall productivity of the office space but don't just take our word for it, there's plenty of studies to back that claim.

Keep Your Employees Sharp & Happy

It's been said time and time again that drinking water is crucial to overall health. It's a constant that doesn't change in a world of shifting dietary guidelines and fad diets but aside from basic physical health, water also plays a crucial role in mental sharpness.

As a study featured on Authority Nutrition explains, "a fluid loss of 1.59% was detrimental to working memory and increased feelings of anxiety and fatigue." You read that right, it only takes a loss of 1.59% to have profound effects on your employees' overall concentration and emotional well-being.

We shouldn't even need to delve into the numerous studies that link happiness to hard work, but it should come as no surprise that water has a hand in that too.

How does this affect you as a business owner? Well, it's easy to forget to drink water. It's quite possibly one of the most important and most neglected habits. After all, there are dozens of water reminder apps available to help keep negligent people on track. But how do you keep your employees hydrated without personally handing them an 8-ounce glass of water every few hours? Well, the best way is to keep water nearby. 

Customized space-saving bottled water coolers can be placed anywhere in your office, no break room required. Keeping a constant supply of refreshing water at hand for your employees is not only convenient for them but it also keeps water in their sight.

The old saying "out of sight, out of mind" goes both ways. If you want your employees to remember to hydrate then keep water in their sight.

According to the Huffington Post, even mild dehydration can lead to fatigue and mood swings. Remember the part above about happiness and hard work? Well, this does not sound like a good recipe for that. Speaking of happiness, who doesn't love a good quality cup of coffee?

For the love of Coffee...

Science loves coffee. It's a staple of the American diet and is the fuel for the nation's workforce. Even non-coffee drinkers say they enjoy the smell of freshly ground beans, and some studies show that just the smell of coffee alone can have positive, stimulating effects. There's no end in sight to the piles of scientific studies being done into the many health benefits of coffee. From the high concentration of antioxidants to the many pluses of the caffeine kick, coffee is easy to love. 

So, when guests and workers alike come into a business, it's a nice gesture to have great quality coffee to offer to them. As many studies show, coffee helps boost creativity, alertness and focus. This translates to happy guests and productive workers.

Not enough evidence for you? Just do a brief Google search into the correlations between hydration, coffee, happiness and productivity and you'll find a mountain of evidence indicating that getting a water cooler and office refreshment delivery is the best thing you can do for your business.

I can do it myself!

Why not just do it yourself? You may be wondering. Well, you certain can drive to the store, fill up the jug, lug it back to the office and hook it up yourself but the goal here is to be productive and using up valuable time on a service that you can potentially save money on with a dedicated company does offer some extra incentive.
