In the days of flexible hours and a closer relationship between your working and personal lives, employees may feel like they’ve never had it so good. But is that really true? As we pile more responsibility on ourselves, the importance of a meaningful break time becomes even more apparent, yet is easy to push to the back of your mind when racing to send an email or finish that all-important document. It’s time you made it easier for your employees to take a more meaningful break. It’s time you installed a vending machine.
A modern break time = a productivity headache.
It’s always beneficial to encourage your staff to take small, regular periods away from their desk throughout their day. If, however, your company is unable to offer adequate refreshments on site, you then force your employees off site, and this can often do more harm than good. Travelling from the workplace to their chosen cafe, coffee shop or fast food outlet ‘eats’ (if you’d pardon the pun) into their allocated time allowance, which means they’ll spend a lot of their break stressing about getting back to their desk in time as opposed to relaxing. You know, the thing that they’re actually supposed to do when taking time out from their work.
In the same way dominoes fall one by one, this has a knock on effect to their productivity levels for the rest of the day. And as we enter the colder conditions, this will only be made worse by hazardous conditions that’ll make break time rather unpleasant if not dangerous. Choose to install a vending machine in your workplace, and you can solve these issues as if by magic.
“No way is that a vending machine…”
Gone are the days when a coffee machine dispenses something merely wet and warm, and likewise for when you used to pop your loose change into the snack machine only for your desired item to get stuck on the way down to your desperate grasp. These frustrating occurences are thankfully no more, and vending is now one of the most forward thinking markets you’ll find, with cutting edge technology, sharp designs and futuristic features.
Coffee machines such as the La Radiosa introduce the coffee shop into the workplace…and then some. Advanced brewing systems combine with an extensive drinks menu to deliver truly authentic fresh bean and fresh milk coffees, and whilst this may be overkill for many, in truth a wide range of coffee machines do the sort of job the kettle could never even attempt to replicate.
Likewise, snack and fresh food machines are able to dispense healthier items including wraps, breakfast bars and pasta pots, so don’t think a vending machine is all about chocolate and crisps. Talking of snacking in the workplace, be sure to check out the Micro Market, a self-service convenience store tailor made to suit your available space. It’s the future of workplace refreshments, and ideal for larger workplaces with a higher volume of staff.
The vast majority of equipment is available with innovative payment methods, to ensure you don’t need to scramble around in your pockets for some loose change again. Coin, card, tokens and mobile, it’s all here, promoting a safer and more secure vending experience.
