When you are running a business, there are lots of expenses to consider. This means that you may wonder about whether certain costs are necessary or merely a luxury. Some business owners fail to consider hot and cold water filtered water systems as necessary, but they could actually offer a number of benefits for your business.
Water Cooler vs. Tap:
Research has shown that having a prominent water cooler will promote hydration. Simply because your team can see a cooler will encourage them to drink more water. Having a hot and cold water filtration system will allow your employees to enjoy their preferred choice of hot or cold beverage. Since the water is filtered, it is superior in quality to tap water, making beverages taste even better. The fact that their drinks taste nicer will also encourage drinking more.
The Benefits of Increased Hydration:
While most of us are aware of the importance of proper hydration for our health and wellbeing, you may not be aware that as an employer it is also important. When your team is properly hydrated, they will have increased concentration with improved alertness and brain function. You are also likely to see increased energy levels and reduced fatigue. This means that productivity should increase as your team no longer have that serious afternoon energy slump.
Since proper hydration is also important for overall health, you may also see reduced employee sickness rates. Since all of the organs, tissues, and muscles require adequate fluid for proper function, your team will enjoy a boost in their immune systems. Water is vital for flushing waste and toxins from the body, which helps to fight off bacteria and illness.
Bottle Fed vs. Filtration System:
Of course, if you want to have a cooler in your workplace you will be faced with a choice of bottle fed coolers or a filtration system. Since both types of cooler have their own benefits, it can be a little tricky to determine which one is best suited to the specific needs of your business. The main advantage of a filtration system is that you don’t need to order in and store bottles of water. If you have a smaller premises, the need to store bottles may not be viable. Additionally, with a plumbed in filtration systems, there is no need to calculate how much water you need in an average month. The water is simply taken from the mains supply and filtered as needed. This can also be a more economical option if you will be using a large quantity of water. However, with this type of system, you do need access to a mains water supply and a nearby power source. There isn’t the flexibility of a bottle fed cooler, which can be moved around the office, providing there is a power source.
