If you're an employer, encouraging your employees to stay hydrated will not only improve their well-being but also their productivity. These are some ways you can encourage your staff to drink more water:
1. Have Water Dispensers
Although tap water is safe to drink in the UK, some people just don't like the taste or prefer colder water when they drink. Therefore, having water dispensers can cater to those that don't like tap water. There are a variety of benefits to having water dispensers in an office too, not just hydration for workers, for instance, they are also a sustainable way to supply water.
2. Supply Different Types of Water
Some people will find even filtered water boring, so if you supply different types of water, you are catering to a variety of needs. Sparkling water is just as hydrating as still, and some people prefer the feel and taste of sparkling. You can supply different types of water with dispensers and even taps, such as our sparkling water taps.
3. Make Sure Water is Accessible
Where you place water dispensers can greatly affect how often they are used. You don't want water to only be available in the kitchen if you want to encourage hydration. Make sure there are enough hydration stations for the number of workers you have and make sure they are in view. Simply seeing the water dispensers can remind people to hydrate. Also, ensure your dis-pensers, or taps can be reached by everyone. Don't forget about wheelchair users, for instance, when thinking about how to make water accessible.
