Water Increases Productivity


Providing water in the workplace is a simple way to keep employees healthy, refreshed and productive. Whether you choose a water cooler or a water filtration system, make sure your employees have access to fresh, clean, and filtered water. It makes a difference.

5 Reasons to Provide Filtered Water in the Workplace

Productivity

  1. Boosts Energy. Studies have shown that employees drink less water when it doesn’t taste good. In many areas, tap water can taste ‘off,’ especially if there is heavy sedimentation or high levels of chlorine. When your body doesn’t get enough water, it gets dehydrated. When you’re dehydrated, you feel sluggish. When you’re sluggish, you don’t have the mental or physical energy to work as productively as you would if you were regularly drinking water. This is a no-brainer. Keep your employees hydrated by providing easily accessible, fresh filtered water.
  2. Helps Brain Function. Did you know that the human brain is made up of 75% water? When your body is dehydrated, this directly impacts the functionality of your brain. The most common effects of dehydration on brain function are: decreased alertness, lower ability concentrate, and slower reaction time. None of this is good at the office. You want your staff working at their highest capacity.
  3. Fights Stress. Did you know that just by staying hydrated, this keeps your cortisol levels in a healthy range, which directly affects the level of stress you experience? Stressed-out employees make a not-so-fun place to work and directly affect the productivity of others. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.
  4. Improves Mood. Mild dehydration can have a negative effect on mood and even create the perception that certain tasks are more difficult than they would be if you were properly hydrated. Lots of water = good mood = healthy perspective on workload.
  5. Prevents Headaches. Dehydration causes less blood and oxygen flow to the brain. Blood vessels also dilate when the body does not get enough water. This can cause terrible headaches, even migraines, that can keep employees from performing at their optimal level or even worse, preventing them from coming in to work at all. Encourage your employees to drink regularly throughout the work day. Posting fun signs with colorful images of water near bathrooms, water fountains and break rooms is an easy way to encourage them to stay hydrated.
