Many people in Australia often say that the only things you have to do in this life is to die and to pay taxes but this is completely wrong. In order to stay alive and to stay healthy, we need to eat and drink to provide us with the energy that we need to get through any working day.

We can go on for an extended amount of time without needing any food but when it comes to water, we won’t last very long if we don’t drink some. The unfortunate thing however is that many people in the workplace are so busy doing their jobs and trying to climb the corporate ladder that they forget to keep themselves hydrated throughout the day.

If you are the owner of a business or the manager then it is your job to make sure that your staff are provided with options when it comes to drinking the right amount of water every single day. As the employer, it would make sense to provide better access to drinking water and so this is why many Australian employers are investing in drinking fountains that will be placed throughout the workplace.

We all know the benefits of drinking water with regard to energy levels and cognitive function but the following are just some of the important reasons why you should always be drinking water in your workplace.

  • It improves worker productivity – You want your employees to be as productive as possible during office hours and so if they are not properly hydrated from drinking water then this can lead to tiredness and a reduction in concentration in the workplace. This will certainly have a negative impact on your business’s productivity and so providing them with drinking water is a win-win situation for everyone.
  • It improves job satisfaction – Happy employees are more productive employees and so by providing them with a drinking fountain to quench their thirst, you’re letting them know that you genuinely care about their overall well-being and this can make them incredibly happy to work for you.
  • It’s great for the company image – You always want to be creating the best first impression when it comes to your business and so by providing your employees with free drinking water throughout their working day, you’re letting future employees and customers know that you are committed to creating a very healthy workplace.
  • It’s reducing your carbon footprint – If you are not supplying your employees with drinking water then they will bring their own plastic bottles to work and this is certainly not conducive to doing the right thing for the environment. These drinking machines don’t need any plastic involved as your employees can drink directly from them.

Providing drinking water specifically drinking fountains in the workplace is a surefire way to make sure that your staff are healthy and productive throughout any working day. It leads to more job satisfaction and it certainly does improve your business’s image today and always.
