Water Coolers in the Workplace

With summer in full swing, it’s more important than ever to keep your team hydrated at work. That’s where office water coolers come in. The good news is that there are many options to choose from, and we’ll help you choose the best options that your clients will love. As a vending and OCS Operator, you should be aware of the latest water coolers and equipment on the market. Employees need to stay hydrated to do their best work and you can help by offering a comprehensive office water service that meets their needs.

Why Water Coolers and an Office Water Service Matter

Providing water in the workplace is a must. And you might be surprised by the positive impact on your office. Drinking enough water can help with focus and cognitive performance. It also improves brain function, digestion, and metabolism. All of these can greatly affect your team’s productivity, not to mention their well-being and health.

Staying hydrated can also mean fewer headaches and sickness. The result? Workers won’t need as many sick days and can be more productive during the workday. Plus, studies have shown that being just 1% dehydrated can cause a 5% decrease in cognitive function. Therefore, giving your employees a water cooler will enhance both the health and productivity of your workplace. As you can see, the benefits of a water cooler are worth it.

Types of Water Coolers

Bottleless Water Coolers

Bottleless water coolers are a popular choice for many businesses. These coolers are plumbed directly into the water supply of your office. This provides fresh and clean water all day long. Plus, they are an eco-friendly water vending option. A single bottleless water cooler can keep thousands of plastic bottles from ending up in landfills. How’s that for boosting sustainability efforts at your workplace? Some of our favorite bottleless water coolers include:

5 Energy-Boosting Snacks To Keep In Your Office

Falling asleep at your desk but already met your caffeine limit for the day? Try one of these energy-boosting snacks instead of going for another cup of coffee. They’re simple and can give you the energy you need to power through the rest of the workday.

1. String Cheese

If your perception of string cheese is that it’s just a snack for kids, think again. String cheese has great benefits that can keep you going. In addition to carbs from the milk, there’s a good dose of protein and calcium. There’s even a ‘light’ option that’s healthier as it has less saturated fat. You can even mix it up with some fruit or beef jerky if you’d like.

2. Trail Mix

Not just for hikers, trail mix is an excellent source of good fats, fiber, and protein and is always a good choice when it comes to snacks that give you energy. Even if you don’t like the varieties offered by snack brands, you can always make your own with the exact kinds of nuts and fruits you like.

3. Hummus and Vegetables

A Mediterranean dish that’s made from chickpeas, sesame seed paste, olive oil, and lemon juice, hummus is full of fats and protein. Combined with some vegetables, this snack is an easy and healthy way to help sustain enough energy to get you through the workday.

4. Yogurt

Yogurt–particularly Greek yogurt– is a great source of protein. You can easily add fruit, granola, or oats to keep yourself full and going longer.

5. Oatmeal

Carbs are your body’s primary source of energy. While the extra boost you get from them might not last as long as protein (since protein takes longer to break down), whole grains such as oats do last a little longer and contain B vitamins like niacin, thiamin, and folate, that work together to help metabolize energy.
