Installing a vending machine in your workplace carries more benefits than you think. Vending machines are a great way to increase morale and make your business more attractive to future employees, all whilst being a cost-effective method. Here’s why you should be looking to install a vending machine in your workplace.
When staff feel valued, morale rises and this improves interoffice working relationships and improved customer interactions, be they face-to-face or over the telephone. In order to create an atmosphere where staff feel valued, it is important to consider the vending machine and what it can offer.
The latest vending machines have been developed to replicate the high-end coffee shop experience, which has become a standard of the high street. Fresh coffee beans and fresh milk constitute top-quality ingredients, and provide an authentic experience for the user. Meanwhile, floor standing vending machines with snack, can and fresh food deliver healthier snacks and cool, refreshing cans and bottles.
The result is a workforce that feels valued because it’s clear that their employer cares for their wellbeing. 75% of people in a recent survey agreed that having access to high-quality coffee in the workplace shows that their employer cares about their wellbeing.
Staff productivity can be boosted with the convenience of a vending machine because it encourages staff to stay on site for their break and lunch times. Furthermore, vending machines can often dispense a drink much quicker than the time it takes to boil the kettle, and there’s no need to wash your mug at the end!
If your working environment is fast-paced then in-cup machines such as the Klix are even faster. The Klix is ideal in fast-paced environments with a high volume of staff, for it limits queue time and enables your staff to get back to work as soon as possible.
In the UK, according to the latest research, almost half of all staff feel undervalued and 67% of people in a recent survey said that they feel more productive after a coffee break. So maybe it is time for businesses to consider if the vending machine is the missing link.
A vending machine can keep overheads down with businesses not needing to provide canteen staff. When shift patterns stretch beyond the standard working hours, the vending machine continues to provide the same benefits, 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. So there’s no need to employ any additional staff or pay for any extra staff.
And if you need more than just vending, why not look into a Micro Market?
