Coffee machine and workers

Many would say productivity and employee morale are two key attributes of a successful modern workplace. And behind every well run organisation, is the workplace coffee machine.  It has become a contributor to employee satisfaction and efficiency in the office.

 

Office coffee machines bolster quality social interactions at work

In an office setting where constant attention and a collaborative mindset is required, especially in relation to roles that require significant levels of stakeholder engagement, coffee can be an effective activator.

A survey commissioned by Nespresso revealed that 81% of Australians believe coffee improves workplace conversations and 20% of coffee drinkers are of the opinion that coffee helps to break the ice and socialise.

Whether it’s during the morning prior to commencing the day or during a work meeting, coffee infuses an element of focus so that interactions and overall communication become much easier and effective.

 

When your employees aren’t catered for, they’re bound to look for alternatives

On average it takes roughly 11 minutes for an Australian employee to purchase a single cup of coffee. When you do the math, this totals to over 40 hours of productivity gone to waste every year, and that’s just per cup of coffee. Your employees are naturally going to gravitate away from their desks when they’re in need for that extra focus, so it just makes plain sense to introduce a high quality self-serve coffee solution within your premises. The NESCAFÉ Milano Combi is a sleek offering that showcases over 48 programmable beverage options beating any Café beverage menu [Register to discuss a free trial at your workplace]. 

 

The benefits of having a coffee machine at your workplace are many, but the two that stand out include the positive influence on employee morale and satisfaction and the value offering that is provided. Employees don’t have to spend that daily $4 on a cup.

 

Cater coffee to your clients without having to leave the workplace

An additional highlight of having a quality coffee solution at your workplace is the uplift to customer or client experience at your business. If you have to deal with clients on a daily basis, then you know very well that simple gestures like presenting a cup of coffee has a marked effect on building customer loyalty.

A coffee machine at the workplace just makes sense doesn’t it?
