For you the business owner, your employees are the life & blood in your company... You spend all of your energy and money reaching out to customers and clients because you want to make sure they’re happy, that you're satisfying their needs.
What about your employees though?
They are most likely the ones on the front lines every day dealing with your customers. And if they’re not happy, if they don’t feel appreciated, lack motivation and aren't productive, that attitude could spill over into their customer interactions.
For this reason, you need to create an environment where everybody wins. Keeping your employees happy is key because, essentially they are the face of your brand, and when they’re satisfied, your customers will be better served and engaged.
So how can coffee make YOU more money in the office?...
COFFEE...Very few office workers can go a few hours, let alone days without their regular caffeine fix. A cup of coffee, be it an Americano, a latte, or an espresso, have often been referred to as the saviour during those long working hours, night shifts or getting through sleep-deprived days.
Coffee Increases Productivity
As we all know, caffeine is one of the most common stimulants readily found in many domestic products. Caffeinated coffee keeps people awake and provides their central nervous systems with a boost that helps keep them productive throughout the day. A 2010 study at MIT shows that employees who take coffee breaks together demonstrate an overall improvement in their productivity. These breaks create a platform in which your employees can talk, share ideas & brainstorm. Allowing your employees to take these breaks together showed a lift in overall performance.
On average, your staff ‘just quickly popping out to get a coffee’ takes up valuable time. This includes walking time, queuing time, and waiting for the barista to prepare your order. The average time it takes for you employee to leave their desk and grab a much-needed caffeine hit from the office coffee machine is a mere one minute. This means, once they return to their desk, they have not lost their trail of thought.
You Can Earn Money
We all know how expensive it is for your employees to spend around £2 per coffee (minimum) on a cappuccino, latte or espresso from the local coffee shop over the road from your business, and they will probably have more than one a day. A Simple Solution for you to make an additional income, is to have your own coffee machine in your office!
