Drinking on the Job is Sometimes a Good Thing

Drinking on the Job is Sometimes a Good Thing

Of course, we’re talking about water consumption here and not opening a bar in the accounts department. However, water consumption has been proven to increase mental acuity and reduce fatigue. Obviously, combating these drains on business productivity would make good sense for any size of business. There are number of solutions to consider, such as water bottles, water cooler, and water filtration system. Each method has merits and flaws bases on your requirements, here is a brief run down to help make the decision process easier.

 1.  Using Bottled Water

When we talk about the business size, we need to consider the physical area and the number of employees. A smaller business may not have a break room where employees eat their lunch. An area like this would usually have a communal fridge where bottles of spring water could be stored for employee use. In this case, it may make more sense to have a single centrally located water cooler to keep employees and visitors hydrated. If the business does have a break room, how large is the fridge? On average a person should drink at least 2 litres of water per day. If for example there are 15 employees that could mean storing perhaps 15 x 1.5 litre bottles of spring water inside the fridge at any one time. This can get confusing fast as no-one wants to drink out of another person’s water bottle. Strictly speaking bottled water only really makes sense for a small business with a handful of employees and a break room with a fridge.

2. Using a Water Cooler

A water cooler solution makes far more sense for most medium to larger size businesses. The real beauty is that it is easily scalable, perhaps you need more office space, the solution is easy, get a second water cooler. There is no need to take up precious fridge space as the water is cooled or heated at the source. Yes, I said heated, many modern water coolers actually heat the water as well making them ideal for making hot beverages. As the water cooler will be centrally located, most employees will have to leave their desks in order to get a drink. This may seem counter productive in terms of productivity, but in fact, a short break every hour or so away from the desk will actually improve productivity.

3. A Full Water Filtration System

This is only really viable for very large businesses, and it involves filtering the water that comes into the building. A professional will be required to fit this system, and the result is a series of water stations similar to water coolers, but without the water bottles on top. The result is a quality water that again can be delivered hot or cold as required. The infrastructure required may mean that this is a decent solution for larger businesses that own their premises.

Best water, service and price! Dealt with Hayley through email who was efficient and friendly and Mary over the phone more recently to add more bottles to be delivered and she was easy to understand and prompt ! Love having good cold water in Perths summer heat and it’s made better when it’s so easy to access with their delivery service and the great customer service they provide.

When your daughter mentions that the water at Mummy's house is better than at Daddy's house you know your onto something good. If a 5yo can taste the difference in the water quality what's that say about what is coming out of our taps. Thanks for making the small changes I've made in our health easy. Delivery guy is always polite and happy to carry the bottles to where I store them. Staff, on the few times I've had to visit the Wangara office, are always polite. Really if you want to do something good for your family then Aussie Natural Spring Water is a no brainer. You won't regret the change.
