Have you ever wondered just how long you sit at your desk every day? The facts are somewhat startling. According to a workplace survey carried out by Fellows, 81% of UK office workers spend between four and nine hours a day just sitting at their desk, which equates to an incredible 67 sedentary days per person per year…
Stand (literally!) and take notice of the problem.
The figures only get worse. Despite the fact that our day passes by in front of a computer screen or endless levels of paperwork, the vast majority of employers simply aren’t doing enough to make their staff feel comfortable at their desk. 45% of employees up and down the country say their boss does not offer the necessary tools and equipment, which leaves 26% of them agreeing that this makes them less productive.
First-hand experience of more productive workstations.
Coinadrink has understood the role workplace refreshments play on our wellbeing and productivity for over 56 years and we have developed a solid reputation for improving workplaces up and down the region with our services. This includes our own! Our showroom is laden with hot drinks machines for our staff and visitors and there is of course our new Micro Market as well.
My role for the company sees me having to spend a lot of time at my desk behind a computer, but having refreshments available to me throughout the day encourages me to take constructive breaks from my desk. Whilst the article from Workplace Insight states ergonomic equipment may be the solution to low wellbeing at work, it’s clear that workplace refreshments make a valuable difference as well.
The benefits of vending are there to be enjoyed by all.
Think about how often you crave a hot drink and, more importantly, the reason why. Robert Deans, founder and director of the Coffee Tasting Club, says that drinking coffee can have a positive effect on mood, memory, alertness and wellbeing whilst the UK Tea & Infusions Association argues a cup of tea can bring countless health benefits.
Then there’s the Micro Market. Your very own refreshment hub invites you into an array of refreshments that persuade you to stay on site for your break time. Whilst the Micro Market conforms to the current demands of the working world and the need for grab and go, you can also relax in the designated area and take your mind off work for a while.
So we’ve established that vending can be a benefit to your workforce, but how do you go about enjoying those benefits? One of the reasons why we’re considered a well-respected vending company is due to our customer-centric approach, which you can enjoy the benefits of from the very beginning. We take the time to establish your requirements before using our knowledge and experience to tailor our services to suit.
We can make vending work for your business and all it takes is a phone call or email.
