Our Next Generation Workplace Sustainability Report highlighted the importance of sustainable business practices for attracting and maintaining happy employees. The report highlighted that the top CSR objective that matters going forward is creating an environmentally friendly building (46%). Moreover, creating a single-use plastic fee environment is featured as second in the top 5 elements the younger generation would like to see in the workplace. An office water dispenser is a cost-effective and simple way of helping your company move toward these objectives.
Value of Amenities
Research shows that a well-designed office environment can contribute to business success in two key ways – recruitment and productivity of staff. More than nine out of ten office workers (93%) would be more likely to accept a job that offered an appealing work environment. Indeed, more than a third of employees (36%) value hot and cold beverage amenities in their office over other amenities.
Amenities make your employees feel valued, and help lift restraints on their work helping to increase productivity and output. Office water dispensers are one factor that plays an important role in the level of comfort and positivity people feel within their workplace.
Health & Well-being
In a recent case study from the International WELL Building Institute, a company found that redesigning a healthier office space reduced staff turnover by 27% and absenteeism was 50% lower than the previous year.
With diet playing such a key role in our health, we must create places that provide access to nourishing food and encourage hydration. The top element younger people would like to see in their office is a health and nutrition station with unlimited filtered water and a strong focus on nutrition and hydration was the second most important initiative for positive workplace culture.
Promoting healthy habits, therefore, such as providing filtered still and sparkling water on tap is crucial to not only maintaining a healthy workplace but also to leading a productive company.
