5 Must-Have Drinks at Your Office Beverage Station

Friday, 30 April 2021 11:11

Today's emphasis on office culture and employee well-being is changing the way we think about workplace perks. When it comes to your office beverage station, a simple coffee machine and water cooler no longer cut it. Vending machines are also another outdated thing of the past. What's a workplace to do? For starters, you'll want to work with an office beverage supplier to restock your office with new beverage offerings. That's the first step. The second, perhaps more challenging step, is deciding which kind of beverages to offer your workforce.

Luckily for you, we've put together a list of the top five must-have drinks every office should have on hand. Offering these to your employees is a great way to attract (and retain) top talent, boost office productivity, and increase overall workplace happiness.

1. Water

Okay, a water cooler is still a staple every office should have. However, it's just not the *only* office beverage a company should offer. Water is, by far, the healthiest and most hydrating beverage out there. And studies show dehydration can have drastic negative impacts on employee productivity and efficiency.

In fact, studies suggest just 1% dehydration was found to decrease employee productivity by a whopping 12% (Premium Waters). And 3-4% dehydration can result in a 25% decline in worker productivity.

2. Coffee & Tea

A source of caffeine should always be available for employees. Caffeine can help boost productivity, increase alertness, and prevent daytime fatigue. Here at Redcup, we can stock your office with roast and ground coffees, single cup coffee products, bean to cup coffee, cold coffee keg services, and more!

Fresh and flavorful teas are also a must-have beverage for all offices. Keep in mind that not everyone tolerates caffeine well, so offering herbal teas in addition to black and green teas ensures everyone can enjoy a satisfying cup of tea.

3. Sparkling Water

Sparkling water has become an increasingly popular beverage of choice for many Americans. Whether opting for something sparkling is just a personal preference or your employees are trying to stay away from sugary sodas, sparkling water is a great addition to every office beverage station.

4. Kombucha

Kombucha is a fermented tea that has been taking the health and wellness world by storm. With a long list of health benefits and a great source of probiotics, kombucha is a great way to help your employees keep their gut health in check, boost their immune systems, and even aid in weight loss.

5. Nitro Cold Brew

Nitro cold brew coffee is one of the trendiest workplace beverages right now--and for good reason. Its creamy, stout-like effect has quickly become a favorite among coffee aficionados around the world.

It's also become the drink of choice among health-conscious individuals, who want something naturally sweet but still low calorie. Nitro cold brew is just 5 calories, which makes it an excellent option for just about anyone.
