A statistic captured from the 2017 Leesman Index showed that 82% of people believe coffee and refreshment facilities are one of the most important aspects of the workplace. That’s true for the office, the garage or workshop, the showroom and many more.
But it’s no longer sufficient to merely offer a simple “facility”. The modern-day employee demands more. We have a deep understanding of what makes a great coffee, which means we expect it more often. Premium coffee is no longer reserved for just the coffee shop. Your workplace must adapt.
Coinadrink Limited takes a look at five great reasons why you should invest in a high-quality coffee experience at work.
Coinadrink Limited provides a variety of tabletop coffee machines to suit all requirements and budgets, including fresh bean and fresh milk machines. We also offer floorstanding hot drinks machines for larger sites.
And there’s plenty of reasons why they present a great opportunity to upgrade the coffee culture in your workplace. Let’s take a look.
1. An unrivalled employee perk.
Installing a top-quality coffee machine that serves coffee shop quality is a simple way to show that you value your team. The stats speak for themselves.
75% of employees from a study agree that having high-quality coffee available shows that their employer cares for their wellbeing. And 81% of those who drink higher quality coffee at work intend to be at their company in two years’ time.
So, you see, premium coffee adds value. It also offers a good opportunity to utilise new or existing breakout space, as a way to collaborate with colleagues.
2. Boosts productivity.
90% of employees who regularly drink high-quality coffee feel motivated to do their best at work.
It’s quite simple, really. Your team are the heartbeat of your business and if they feel like you care, they’re more likely to put the effort in. It’s not just the effects of caffeine that help them stay focussed and productive, it’s the feeling of respect.
Providing high-quality coffee really does matter.
3. Supports collaboration.
We touched on this in the first benefit and it’s true: introducing high-quality coffee and refreshment facilities can help support teamwork and collaboration.
A coffee machine is a simple yet effective implementation that can spark creativity. In fact, a separate study found that you are 38% more productive if you are engaged with your colleagues, which goes to show why breaktimes are now longer frowned upon as a way to dodge your responsibilities.
A tabletop coffee machine is a great focal point for a meaningful break time.
4. Cuts costs. Saves time. Gets results.
You may think a coffee machine may be too expensive. But even when so many cater to different budgets, the return on investment can still be the same regardless.
Think about your current refreshment solution. If it’s the kettle, then your team have to wait around for it to boil and get everything they need, which is no quick option. If they’re heading off site to the high-street or coffee shop, then that can take even longer. Time that’s spent not working.
Offering a premium alternative on site could save time and money. A coffee machine can dispense all your coffee shop favourites in less than 30 seconds. It can also help attract and retain star talent.
5. Improves company culture.
The modern workplace has the spotlight firmly over its head. Not only does employee wellness now matter more than ever, but the impression you leave on your visitors is also vital.
Did you know that it takes just seven seconds to form a first impression? A coffee machine can add a real “wow” factor to your workplace and could be a simple yet effective asset when attracting – and retaining – star talent, as we touched on above.
Coinadrink’s range of high-quality coffee machines can provide genuine coffee shop style beverages in under 30 seconds, beautifully crafted with fresh coffee beans and fresh milk. Our coffee machines work for all industries, whether you need something luxurious for your showroom or something a bit more practical for your workshop.
