For some of us bears, our morning coffee is the only thing keeping us from hibernating all day. Being able to get a great cup of coffee at the office isn’t just a great perk. We don’t mean to be too dramatic about it but it can mean the difference between business success and failure. Here are the top 5 reasons why employers should provide the good stuff!
Top 5 reasons why you should provide coffee in the workplace
1. Show your appreciation for your team’s hard work
For the team that goes the extra mile, nothing says thanks for your hard work better than a fully stocked coffee station. Show your appreciation with our hot, cold brew, an assortment of sweeteners and creamer as well as some cozy mugs. If you really want to show your appreciation, allow every member of your team to pick a mug that shows off their personality!
2. Increase productivity
Research shows that coffee can increase focus, so if you want to help your employees perform at their best, offer them great coffee. A cup in the morning can help your team members start their day on a productive note.
3. Collaboration and social interaction
Having coffee in the office can help build relationships. Don’t discount those quick chats in the morning while everyone is grabbing a cup. Bonding over a shared interest like great coffee can help your team members get to know each other better. If you have remote employees - try to schedule regular remote coffee breaks.
4. Increase efficiency
Having to stop and buy a cup of coffee on the way to work takes time and money. Your employees will have to find a favorite coffee shop, wait in a long line, and spend over $5 for a handcrafted beverage or cold brew. Over time, this adds up. If each member of your team spends 20 minutes in line or waiting for a drink and $5 a day that is 100 minutes a week and $25. What else could they do with this time and money?
5. It’s convenient
Being able to grab a great cup of coffee any time of day, or between meetings is a huge convenience for your employees. When planning your office coffee program, think about how to make it quick and easy for your team to get their coffee fix!
