Maybe you think having a filtered sparkling water machine in your office would be an extravagance. But there are multiple reasons it is a sound investment that positively impacts many facets of an organization. From employees to environmental goals to the bottom line, see how a filtered water dispenser can have big benefits for your office.
Boosts Productivity. There is a link between dehydration and decreased brain power. According to a 2014 study by Weill Cornell Medical College’s Brain and Mind Research Institute, even mild dehydration can cause employees to fall into an afternoon slump. Even water loss of less than 5 percent can reduce cognitive performance, reaction time, and attention. You combat dehydration when you install a filtered water machine water in your office that offers employees delicious, fresh, and clean water on demand, all throughout the day.
Less Sick Days. Did you know that 35 percent of all gastrointestinal illness is water-related? When employees call off work for stomach bugs, productivity suffers. Additionally, workers can often feel more stressed when they return to work with a larger workload from taking time off for illnesses that can be prevented in the first place. Eliminate your office’s risk of gastrointestinal illnesses and business liability by purchasing the right office water filtration system.
Saves money. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the most widely used green building rating system in the world, and water conservation is one of the recognized measures. LEED provides a framework to create healthy, highly efficient and cost-saving green buildings—and Natura is proud to align itself with those goals. A Natura system can play a key role in helping offices achieve sustainability initiatives by reducing water waste and the carbon impact of your business.
Eco-friendly. Consider installing an office water dispenser to help your business save energy and combat unnecessary waste. Filtered water machines are cost-effective, plus employees and clients will love having the delicious option of filling up their reusable water bottles and glasses with sparkling water. Because we spend most of our time at work, it’s important to remember that our attitudes about reducing our environmental imprint at home should be extended to the office.
Builds Workplace Culture, Engages Employees. Studies show that employees can actually benefit from “water cooler” chats. Everyone needs time to decompress during the workday, and when your employees take a break to gather around an office water dispenser, it allows them to engage with one another, thus boosting morale and productivity. These gatherings also often improve workplace culture by providing casual “facetime” with supervisors and upper management, while also allowing for the opportunity to collaborate with workers from other departments.
